Re: GTX 260/280 Clock Throttling While in 3D Apps. An Explanation.
Well, nvidia has a good profiling system built into their drivers. It might as well be put to good use.
If nvidia can be bothered differentiating "high quality", "quality", "performance", "high performance" in their profiles (especially nowadays where hardly anyone would drop past 'quality' on g80 and above), then they can and should put the same sort of effort into clock throttling (and indeed any reasonable feature end users would like control over). No-one forces people to actually use the profiles but the options are (and should be) there when a user decides they need them.
