Nvidia GPU gets stuck in throttled low power mode

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a MSI GTX 460 v2 1 GB with the latest drivers installed. I noticed that frequently (but not all the time) when returning from sleep mode the GPU speed gets throttled down to 200 Mhz (from an OC'ed 950 Mhz). I can tell the card is stuck in that mode because 3D game performance is obviously compromised. Via Nvidia Inspector, I can manually set it back to its OC'ed settings and its performance is fine again.


Anyone else seeing this behavior?

Try setting power management to prefer maximum performance in the NVIDIA control panel.

Alright, I'll give that a try. Thanks.
