Oh, yes, sure, that is what I meant, too, sorry I have not expressed it properly. What I mean is:
When maximum performance is needed (benchmarking, demanding gaming) isn't it better to apply the one-click KBOOST, instead of setting this in the NVCP? Is there any downside to this?
The rest of the time my card runs at stock. I run XOC, now and then, just to start the fan blowing a little, at quite profile.
That's how I use it.
PS: to be honest though, after running SuperPosition with my card OCed, once with KBOOST and once with MaxPerf-NVCP, I got better score with the NVIDIA setting... SuperPosition, though, is not consistent..
PPS: and let's not forget that the MaxPerf setting in the NVCP does not actually apply maximum performance globally, in Windows 10. I have already linked to a thread explaining this. With KBOOST though my clocks, etc, never idle. They might drop a tiny bit but not much.Edited by LostParticle - 12/14/17 at 2:15pm
