Google Chrome cancels overclock on GTX 970

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have something strange happening on my folding rig.
I'm currently running my 970 with an base clock of 1475 MHz.

But when i open google chrome, this baseclock overclock is removed and set back to 1050 MHz (default base clock).
The overclock on the memory frequency stays in place (3300MHz).

Anybody an idea why this is happening?confused.gif

Wild guess... maybe Chrome or Flash or Silverlight or something with "hardware acceleration" enabled is messing with the clocks...????

I have the same issue with dropbox.
My understanding is that dropbox doesn't have hardware acceleration.
any idea how to fix that?

I've run into a few things that cause this to happen on my 980. Chrome was one of them, but also Remote Desktop and I just saw my clock drop when I was using the built in Calculator...

Another thing I've noticed with Chrome running is that if my desktop pc is woken up from a sleep state, my GTX 970 will stay at the lowest idle clock and cause videos to lag and drop frames in Chrome until I launch something that actually places a real load on the GPU like a game or something 3D in nature. This doesn't happen on a cold boot or reboot however, so its isolated only to times after the system is woken up from sleep.... really weird behavior indeed.

Windows Remote Desktop takes over the GPU and screws up everything. I use (for years) TightVNC.

For LinuxMint, you can share the desktop, but you need to install DConF Editor and change the desktop sharing so encryption is turned off, then TightVNC can talk to it no problem.
