Nvidia dynamically turns it on/off in profiles because it actually costs a couple of cycles to use it and certain applications don't gain any benefit from the increased bandwidth.

It's not the magical thing some people make it out to be.
But then you depend on AMD for per-app tweaking of this. It would be nice if it could be enabled/disabled manually from a profile.
