View Full Version : Question on my new EVGA GTX 460
02-24-2011, 11:18 AM
I just bought an EVGA GTX 460 1024 mb SuperClocked Edition and when I open up GPU-Z on the first tab (Graphics Card) the GPU Clock reads 763 MHz, Memory 950 MHz, and Shader 1526 MHz, which is stock for this card. However when I go to the next tab(Sensors) at idle it says GPU Core Clock 50.6 MHz, GPU Memory Clock 67.5 MHz, and Shader Clock 101 MHz. Is that normal and am I to assume that under load the readings go up to what the card's specs are? Those readings in the Sensors tab seem to fluctuate depending on what I'm doing. Is there a setting for that somewhere? My 8800 GTX's specs showed full power all the time in the Sensors tab. Thanks.

Sounds like your power saving modes are activated. You will more than likely notice the same thing with your CPU speeds. i shut them off. I'm not very green!

That setting makes no difference. Even at the High Performance setting in my Windows 7 Power Options are in Control Panel it's still does the same thing.

open the nvidia control panel go to manage 3d settings and change the power management mode from adaptive to max performance then go to the next tab on that page ( program settings.. look for fsx in the installed programs ) and do the same there :)

Ah yes that did it. I thought there had to be a settings for that in Nvidia somewhere. Thanks much.
