I have a GT240 which I use primarily for BOINC (scientific computing). I run it at 100% all the time (with a tool to keep the temperature below 90 celcius). I've noticed that after some time, the GPU "down-clocks"; the GPU clock reduces from 550 to 135.
This just started recently. Is there a way to prevent this? There's no global setting to enable maximum performance, and I can't do it per executable since I need this primarily for scientific computing.
- Various and numerous NVidia driver versions from 260.x to 280.x
- RivaTuner (doesn't support ForceWare drivers)
- NVTray (doesn't fix the clock speed)
- MSI Afterburner (doesn't fix the clock speed)
