I have a 650W PSU. I don't even get close to using all 650W. Do you know what speedstep is for the Intel CPU's? It's the same general idea. If the N460 isn't in heavy use, it'll run at lower speeds to conserve power and to generate less heat. It is not a problem, but rather a nice little thing to keep the heat down. Sure, you might not be @ 100% load on your GPU even at 780MHz, but still, whatever counts, right? I wouldn't recommend updating the BIOS of the card. It's risky if you're not experienced at it. It's perfectly normal to have it downclock when not in use.
Okay i understand you. It does seem better in terms of power consumption and it probably adds longevity towards the card itself. Last night i set the 2D\\3D profiles in afterburn to work on 780mhz in any 2D/3D application. So i suppose that will help out -_-. Have you noticed your hawk throttling as well?
