Video Card Idle's at lower clocks

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just happen to notice this my new card Idles lower, when I'm gaming it goes back up to normal clocks.
Is this something new because my 8800GTX never did it

Idle
Core 400Mhz
Memory 297Mhz
Shaders 799Mhz

Gaming
Core 680Mhz
Memory 2450Mhz
Shaders 1458Mhz

Nope, that's nothing new--most cards have been doing that for years--no need to have 3d clocks enabled when there are no 3d apps to take advantage of it (loosely, it's like Cool 'n Quiet or Speedstep, except for a graphics card). It's totally normal. One can force 3d clocks all the time in control panels for the respective cards--personally I keep 2d and 3d clocks enabled. Makes more sense and conserves power/produces less heat at idle.

My 8800GT didn't do that either. Could it be a new introduction with the GTX2x0 series? I know ATI cards have lower clocks in idle for power saving, but never had it in my 8800GTS or 8800GT.

i am pretty sure its that energy saver thing that new motherboards, and some compatible video cards have

Mine does that also it drops down to the same exact clock speeds when idle.
Sadly it also will do it randomly in the middle of running any game im playing. Does that happen to you or anyone else?

It is the power saving feature that the 9-series and GTX260/280 have.

lol i wouldnt worry at all my gtx280 clocks down ALOT becuase it saves power and keeps temps a lil lower and only uses what it needs to theres no worry there

idle
Core:301
Shader: 602
Memory: 100

Game
Core:602
Shader:1296
Memory1107

^^ its a very big change in clocks for me lol but its nothing 2 be alarmed about if anythign its a good thing becasue it saves what it doesnt need and only uses a small amount of processing power
