Re: 260GTX nvidia-drivers-190.42-r3 - powermizer issue
I did not state that NVIDIA has no plans to resolve the problem I referred to. It has also only been root-caused recently. Work towards resolving it is underway, but as always, there's the matter of resources and prioritization.
Further, if you're seeing differences in behavior with and w/o the power adapter plugged, you are likely seeing a different problem.
