gtx 680 watching videos/streams

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello guys.


When my gtx 680 is in idle or I am just surfing on the internet listening to music etc. its clock is 324MHZ, but as soon as i start a video or watch any stream, even in chrome browser it gets up to 1005MHZ and it gets kinda hot (62°).

Is this a normal behavior for this card or do i need to turn anything down? I would much rather like it to stay at 324MHZ and be cooler when watching videos or streams.

I am using Chrome browser and mpc-hc for videos. Windows 7 64 bit service pack 1.


Thank you

Normal

NVIDIA GPU Boost Technology
Dynamically maximizes clock speeds to push performance to new levels and bring out the best in every game. This technology is based on the temperature and power draw of your card, as well as what application you're running. The card will tailor its clock speeds for maximum performance & longevity.

62 isn't bad.

my 580 ran at 90 degrees!

62 is hot for watching videos, I don't know why people would say it isn't. Couple of things to check, first go into the Nvidia control panel and make sure the power management mode under global 3d settings is set to adaptive, then turn off "enable" hardware acceleration in flash, silverlight, and your browser.

you must be misunderstanding me guys sorry english is not my native language.

I mean when i am just watching a video on youtube for example. The card instantly clocks to 1005MHZ up from 324MHZ while watching the video. As soon as i end the video it clocks down to 324MHZ again.

I am not talking about games smile.gif

HexATL was correct. The NVIDIA GPU Boost Technology becomes active when you are using the card. The frequency will adjust depending on the application. This is a new feature. This article might help clarify if you have any further concerns. http://www.geforce.com/whats-new/articles/introducing-the-geforce-gtx-680-gpu/

As they said, it's normal and 62C is not enough to cause alarm. Adjust the auto fan curve if you want it to be colder, by default it's designed to be quiet. Your GPU is not just used in games.

I wouldn't worry about a GPU until it hits 85C, and even then they are rated for higher.

okay turning off hardware acceleration in my browser actually helped, i can watch videos and streams now in my browser and it stays at 324MHZ.

But i still do have it clock to 1005MHZ when i am watching a video with a video player like VLC, windows media player, mpc-hc etc.


Can someone of you guys check if it is the same for you? I check the temperatures and clocks with EVGA precision X. After i start the video in a video player it instantly jumps to 1005MHZ.

Thankx in advance

That is more normal, you can look for a hardware acceleration setting for those programs as well but I would expect that in later drivers Nvidia will have the card run at about 500Mhz or even 300MHz for that, similar to how the 500 series runs at 51MHz or 405MHz in videos.

You can try this in VLC:

Go to:
Tools >> Preferences... >> Video

And untick "Accelerated video output". Press "Save"
