    heads up problem w/nvidias newer cards

    just got me a new 460 GTX so of course I go to nvidia for the latest drivers and installed the 260.99s . I play a few games and notice them choppy . I do a check and get lousy 2d and 3d proformance . Short story is that nvidias 260.99s are broken . I downgraded to the 260.89 and all problems disapear.

    After doing some googling on the subjet I am not the only one
    anyone else notice this ?

    No problems with the 260.99's here. All my games run smooth on my GTX480. It may be just a difference in system hardware.

    I think so. They seem fine on 480 for me too. I think some bug on different hardware. I don't want.

    Re: heads up problem w/latest nvdia driver

    huh, thats interesting . Must be with certain brands . Mine Is a MSI Hawk GTX 460.
    anyway I am looking foward to some new driver releases . Maybe they wont clock down the GPU so low . 50 Mhz at idle seems like going a little too agressive . If I go into the control panel I see a power profile , but the only option is "adaptive"
    Will MSIs' Afterburner allow you to set a not so agressive power management ?

    My Hawk is running fine with those drivers. Something is not right if the only option in NCP under Power Management is "Adaptive." There should be another option for "Prefer maximum performance."

    dont know , I tryed 3 sets of drivers and same results . Maybe their is a registry hack I can do ? will MSI live update update the vidcards bios ?

    EDIT :
    MSI afterburner solved My issue . Now all is better . I created a profile with stock settings and wow what a difference . She still idles low but as soon as I launch anything core clock of the GPU shoot up very fast .
    MSI Update proved useless no bios update

    Re: heads up problem w/latest nvdia driver

    seems a lot of people are having issues with nvdias 400 series cards
    I am seeing post after post of slowdowns . Many are modding the quatro drivers and using them
    http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=333572).

    here is just a couple of posts on the slowdown issue
    http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=189136

    http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=188842

    I have noticed the same issue some games studdering.
    Also noticed windows in general will slowdown when about the same time as the GPU clock drops to 50 mhz as confirmed by keeping CPUz open and on the graphics tab. If I start opening multi windows in IE8 , the clock jumps to 800 Mhz , and so does computer proformance . Their must be a way to keep the clocks from dropping so low . Sure I do not want to run full speed at all times , but dropping to 50 Mhz is crazy !!
    The good news is it is rumored that this will be fixed in the next driver release due out as I hear it , in jan 2011.

    Re: heads up problem w/latest nvdia driver

    oh well I submitted the bug report and not even a peep out of them . Now trying to use MSI tec support eamil but have little hope that will do any good.
    I was just on EVGAs site for the gtx460s and they are getting bios upgrades .
    I was half tempted to use one of their bios but I would probaly brick the cards and void the warenty

    Re: heads up problem w/nvidias newer cards

    I must have gotten a defective card , I just poped in a 275GTX ( did all the driver cleaner routine ) and it fixed my issues . Doing some game play I am seeing games loading faster . Dont know what frame rates I am getting but cant be that bad as I see no lags . This MSI is going back to new egg .
    A side thought , its nice not to have those HDMI sound drivers running . See no need for them anyway In my case . Noticing now that the computer as a whole is snappier . Nice not to have the GPU idling down to 50 Mhz .
    The 275 in comparision idles at 300 Mhz so I dont know what Nvidia was thinking , sure I want to be green , but come on 50 Mhz idle is carring it way too far IMO.

    Interesting , maybe I got a bad card then because I have one of those MSi Hawlk 850 Mhz non reference cards ? I don't know . Anyway I am just going to return the card , save up and wait and see what nvidia is up to this summer . I hear That this close to releasing a GTX560. Be interesting to see how that pans out . I dought it would be better then your 570 but at the very least Nvidia should be able to better tweak their drivers , and the prices should drop on the 500 series cards.
