GeForce 9500 GT revives clock throttling
PowerPlay helps ATI cards have decent power consumption. Compare to NVIDIA cards of the same performance level, ATI cards have less power consumption when idling, because when the card is idle, the clock frequency will move lower. While we are testing 9500GT, we found this is interesting: the card have a function similar to PowerPlay. When the card is idle, the core clock will go down to 200MHz automatically. The driver we are using is 174.74. We are not sure what the tech will be called, maybe NVIDIA will still call it ?PowerMizer??
