A couple of days ago, we reported that Nvidia pulled the plug in their latest GeForce Ready Drivers for Mobile GPU overclocking due to a “bug”. Well today, Nvidia just thought about the mess they’re dealing with and have come to a conclusion to re-enable overclocking with the next driver release. Here’s what they said:
“As you know, we are constantly tuning and optimizing the performance of your GeForce PC.
We obsess over every possible optimization so that you can enjoy a perfectly stable machine that balances game, thermal, power, and acoustic performance. Still, many of you enjoy pushing the system even further with overclocking.
Our recent driver update disabled overclocking on some GTX notebooks. We heard from many of you that you would like this feature enabled again. So, we will again be enabling overclocking in our upcoming driver release next month for those affected notebooks.”
Nvidia seems to change their mind every time an issue arises, and it just means that the so called “bug” is a feature after all of mobile GTX 900M GPUs especially the GTX 980M. Now owners of notebooks with such graphics processing units could later enjoy up to date drivers while still being able to overclock their machines.
