No - I got the number from their response mail.

I see you have a drop-down box to select PowerMizer modes in your screenshot. I don't have those on my machine, but I'm still stuck with the 190.42 driver; is it a brand new thing?
No, I don't have such a drop-down box - I wish I did! (we'd all be happy then, since this would solve all the problems reported in this and about a dozen other powermizer-related theads).
The only drop-down existing allows me to select "Adaptive" or "Prefer maximum performance", and with either option I still get the lousy performance of 324MHz (instead of 1.7GHz).

By the way, Phoronix just reviewed a GT240 and published similar speed problems -but Michael apparently didn't notice the powermizer problem that causes this...
