You're saying it jumps to the high performance clocks and stays there all the while Photoshop is running?
That probably shouldn't cause a problem directly, per se, as you'll get the fastest performance. But does it get hot / speed up the fans?
I agree that it really should just run up the clock speeds when the GPU programming is directly in use (that happens with ATI cards).
As I recall, with nVidia drivers there are quite a lot of 3D settings (mostly for gamers). Have you been through them all?
Yes, it does get very hot, and the fans speed up, which concerns me.
I'm not a gamer so haven't used or set up the 3D settings. Might that be a problem?
I wish I could advise you specifically; I'm just recounting what I've read on the forum. I don't have a nVidia card at the moment in any of my systems.
I shouldn't think you would have to set up anything, but if it's misbehaving perhaps it wouldn't hurt to look through the settings for anything that might up the sensitivity to GPU programming and boost the clocks as you're seeing.
Perhaps a nVidia afficionado (JJMack?) will step in and offer some more specific info...
Thanks Noel, I'll look through the settings and see what I can find that might be causing a problem. Strange how the update to 14.2 really made things worse...
