Default Re: GTX 260/280 Clock Throttling While in 3D Apps. An Explanation.

Well if Nvidia has a declock, an OC setting would also be useful as well which if could be profiled would be king. Can't comment further since I am not going into slomo mode which always caused problems for me in the past. A min then a max setting with auto settings which can be profiled seems to be best idea so far.
The 8800GTX doesn't powersave in 3d, it never did. It's either 2D or full power 3D. The GTX260+ can have lower 3D clocks when the load is less...
