Default Re: [260.19.12 regression] Clock changes don't work

I have already flashed the BIOS to slightly increased clock rates, but I like to have the ability to downclock it if I am using only 2D.

Flashing the BIOS, restarting, playing some WoW, flashing again, rebooting again is just not an option.

Add an extra performance mode to your BIOS and set lower clocks for 2D mode.

Ulukai,

You are NOT listening. It's the fourth time this regression is being introduced and it's been resolved before three times. So, bumping will most likely work.

Happy bumping while I enjoy my high clock speeds

No seriously, I do understand your point and I do agree that it has to be fixed in the driver. What I don't get, is why you are getting hostile to me. I was just offering you and the other persons in this thread a way to use higher clock speeds other than OC'ing with coolbits. You don't want to do it like that? Fine, have it your way.

Cool Re: [260.19.12 regression] Clock changes don't work

Ulukai,

I was not trying to OC my card, not it's the purpose of this thread. I was trying to downclock it to decrease my power bill at the end of the month.

Here comes the second bump. Aaron/Zander, can you say at least "the problem is known we'll fix it in the next release"?

And now the third sad bump.

I can't speak for Aaron and apologize for not having replied earlier, but I've personally had hardly any time to keep track of bugs reported via the nV News forums lately. Maybe Daniel can help reproduce this problem - I'll ask him.

It's kind of sad to hear that NVIDIA Linux drivers developers no longer actively participate in these forums, and I wonder what's going on in NVIDIA so that your priorities have changed so abruptly.

FWIW, I debugged and fixed the NV-CONTROL overclocking interface regressions today. They should be fixed in a future 260.19.xx driver release (though likely not the next one).

Is there any chance this will fix problems with clocks in 1.9 where the GPU isn't getting clocked back up on activity?

Just upgraded to fedora 14 and my laptop (9600m GT) when set to adaptive clocks down to the minimum value but then never speeds back up unless some GL is opened (without the GL app this things get vary slow). Seems to be more related to xserver 1.9 then driver version.

No, that sounds like an entirely unrelated problem (and one I hadn't heard of).
