    I know this is a late reply but its GFE/ShadowPlay that causes your GPU clock to max out and never down clock on the desktop. If you go to Windows task manager you and click "NVidia Streamer Service " or "NVidia Capture Server" and "End Process", you should see your GPU clock return to normal. Its a known issue that arises every so often.. I had to revert back to GFE 2.2.2.0 which allows my GPU to down clock with no problems. Its a weird bug or something because it will happen to others when I have no problem on the same GFE version.

    GFE is not on my pc, anyway i found what was causing it January update for avast, to be specific the avastui.exe now cause the system to run at 3d clock speeds just sitting on the desktop when max performance is set in global profile, I had to make profile for avast (avastui.exe) in nvcp and set it to adaptive and reboot the system to get idle speeds on desktop again. any driver change and i have to do this now.

    but this is the first time i see any AV product. even remotely effect or use the gpu in way it forces 3d clock speeds.

    And avast denies there is any problem. so i dont expect avast to fix this.

    Use DDU.

    Also whenever you're installing a driver, when the nvidia driver asks you where you want to extract the package, just tell it to extract to a folder on your desktop.
    Then after installation, delete the folder. Those 500mb nvidia files you see are from that. The default installation folder is like c:\nvidia corporation or something.

    My brother has an ssd and he was very upset because he felt that room in it was being taken for no apparent reason. Turned out that he was testing a few drivers out and he had nearly 4gb of nvidia driver installation folders taking up room.

    weird these drivers make better use of CUDA (higher GPU usage and faster encoding) when using the "old" legacy NVCUVENC libraries, confirmed with Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate, Any video Video Converter Ultimate and MediaCoder.

    Is it possible to create new custom resolutions with different refreshrates when DSR is enabled in this new driver?

    Doesn't seem to be the case this time. I stopped the streamer service, still at max clocks.

    disable in the task manager,all the processes that are not main for the system to work,till you find which was responsible.

    Why do you guys even use max performance mode? Are there known games where adaptive causes issues?

    Yes there are games out there that have issues with this. then there is the people that want there 3d game running full clock speeds cause they dont the gpu going up and down in clock as it see fits. cause that usual dont end well if dont work right.

    I know for fact that pcsx2 emulation will clock the gpu back and forth as it sees "fit" and it cause framerate drops where there should be any.

    For same reason speedstep is disabled for some people it dont always work right and causing issues.

    All working good here , not noticed any problems or bugs my end, and they seem just the same as the last drivers to me , identical 3dmark scores

    Some games use maximum performance by default (wolfenstein the new order, RAGE)

    Yes, This driver and the one before both are 294MB in size.

    Maybe this driver is a plasebo driver.

    To remove any potential stutters and stability issues, I do have it set to adaptive at global though and max perf. only per game profile

    I have no stutters setting to max performance just from global,using nv inspector O_O

    iirc that prevents the GPU clocks from dropping to Idle

    This, to keep it in more low freq. profile by desktop usage.


    I have backup profiles (via nvinspctor) from driver to driver so I dont have to go through all 100 games then and set max perf. by each profile.. :D

    I've never noticed forcing max performance to actually do anything, and that's across three GPU's.

    Well back with Fermi when they introduced this I noticed some downclocking by few games or now with Kepler if in menus/loading, which could also sometime glitch the game and crash, very rare, but its a possibility.
    Now I just use it as a precaution.
