Nvidia Ntune making the profile permanent? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Alright Duckieho, you've made some interesting points. However, I do beg to differ with you on the logic of OC'ing through the OS. As I see it, the driver subsystems are, in fact, managed by the OS and are, therefore, also designed in such a way that allows for modifications of such subsystems through the OS. You can correct me if I'm wrong.

The issue with BIOS overclocking through an OS is that you are trying to change something that is dynamic. You can't interrupt CPU for a few cycles to apply your changes. With a video card, you can. You will lose display or the screen might not update for a second. What happens it you disable the CPU to apply a setting? What tells the system to apply the setting if there is nothing to process the command?

Also, do you really need drivers for a CPU?

You're right: you cannot disable a CPU. However, drivers do exist for the Central Processing Unit - they're known as operating systems.
