    So i just got this card new, running RivaTuner i notice that the clock speeds will vary greatly, is this normal? I do not know much about computers at all. Heres some figures CoreClock/ROP domain: 300 -783mhz
    CoreClock/ShaderDomain: 600-1890mhz
    Memory Clock: 399-1152mhz

    Seems like it is a function whereas they go lower when im not doing anything. So sounds like something normal i just want to be sure.

    Yeah you are right.

    When you are on the desktop, the card will clock down to save power.

    When you enter a game for example, the 3D clocks will power back up and give you full clocks.

    No, that's just a standard feature that cards have had for a few generations.

    Hybrid Power is something entirely different

    Hmmm something i didnt notice b4 in RivaTuner it shows the fan duty speed, to not go back down once it goes up to 75%ish (during gameplay) it stays there.

    You should upgrade to the GTS 250, it's a newer, more efficient card.

    Please use NVIDIA Control Panel, as we do NOT allow any third party applications to be used to modify driver configurations. If you continue to do so, you will be doing so at your own risk, and your card's warranty will be void.

    We intend to keep our customers happy, so it is highly recommended to stick with what came with the original, unmodified driver. After all, we have to make money too, we can't be losing money to unnecessary RMA requests from using these unapproved utilities.

    Sir, I suggest that you purchase our latest GTS 250 card, which is a more energy efficient card than the 8800 series of cards.

    Ya WTF man, Some times I wish 2d clocking worked for me, I just have a couple setups in EVGA Precision @ 570/1404/1690 and switch to 820/1934/2304 for gaming/other uses.

    GTS 250 = G92b (9800GTX+ core) on new, revised, more efficient PCB with improved cooling design (quieter and cooler).


    If you've already got a 9800GTX+, don't bother buying the new card, unless you are like obessed with silence and electricity bills.


    If your card's clocks are dropping in a game there's something wrong.
    But if it's only downclocking in the desktop or non-intensive operations, its just the power saving mode at work. You can turn this off by selecting the High Performance mode in your computer's power management plans.

    Hybrid Power turns off a HP enabled graphics card (such as the 9800GT or GTX280 Hybrid Power models) completely and allows integrated graphics to handle desktop operations, but fires up the card for 3D and gaming purposes - saving a great deal of power.
    But if I'm not wrong nVIDIA completely removed HP in their latest models.
