I still apologize for the confusion, though. I'll try to be more specific going forward.

No problem, was just hoping the issue was fixed. Is there an ETA for the next 195.36.xx release?

Not yet, now. However, we're aware that the fix for this particular problem is in high demand, and we'll try to push out a new BETA sooner, rather than later.

195.36.15
"Fixed a bug that prevented performance level transitions on recent GPUs with SDDR3 and GDDR5 memory"

I wonder if "The former turned out to be a memory training problem affecting all GT21x GPUs with SDDR3/GDDR5 memory" also fixes G92 based cards (GTX280M).

fingers crossed...

195.36.15 fixes the PowerMizer issues with my GTS 360m (GDDR5) card. Thanks nVidia!

No luck here. Another driver release, same bug.

Graphics Processor: GeForce GTX 280M
CUDA Cores: 128
VBIOS Version: 62.92.91.00.01
Memory: 1024 MB
Memory Interface: 256-bit
PCI Device ID: 0x060a
PCI Vendor ID: 0x10de

Powermizer stuck on level 1, 275,301 where maximum is level 3 583,950.

It's supposed to be one of the fastest notebook cards offered by nVidia. Too bad driver makes crap out of it.

Hi, I've got same problem with powermizer on my MSI GT640X, when I start for example glxgears it doesn't switch to higher frequencies it stays in the middle.
nvidia GTS 250M, 195.36.15, Fedora 12 64bit, kernel 2.6.31.5
also, there is some kind of problem with kernel 2.6.32.9, driver compilation is ok, but xserver won't start there is only black screen.

The recent 195.36.15 release included the fix for the issue that was affecting the GeForce GT240 w/ GDDR5.

Unforunately, at this time we do not have a fix yet for the issue that affects some 2X0M GPUs, which has a different root cause.
