    Default GTX 580 power throttle

    NVIDIA took the tech world by storm last week when it released its single-GPU GeForce GTX 580 graphics card. Not only is the card the fastest single-GPU on the planet, but it also has some pretty unique features. While enthusiasts and overclockers are salivating over the overclocking possibilities on the card, NVIDIA it seems has quietly placed a clok speed throttling logic on the GPU. The logic places a restriction on the clock speeds soon as the card is exposed to an extremely demanding 3D application - read overclocking applicaiton.

    So effectively, the new GeForce GTX 580 would not allow users to fully exploit and enjoy Furmark or OCCT. No doubt NVIDIA has the best interests of users in mind as the throttle would serve to protect fragile components from permanent damage. But it also spoils the fun of professional enthusiasts and overclockers.

    So W1zzard got down to work and has come up with the means of disabling this throttling protection. GPU-Z from TechPowerUp is already a popular utility among enthusiasts on account of its efficient diagnostics and monitoring abilities. The new feature added by W1zzard is in the form of a new command-line argument for GPU-Z and reads, "/GTX580OCP".

    Once the argument is added to the GPU-Z executable at the time of start, either within Windows, using the Command Prompt or the shortcut, the clock throttling mechanism on the GTX 580 is automatically disabled and will remain so for as long as the same session is active. Once users have completed what they had planned, they can just close GPU-Z and reboot their system - the GTX 580 will be back to normal.
    TechPowerUp has created a new version of their popular GPU-Z utility, which allows users to disable the throttling mechanism on the new GeForce GTX 580 cards. The new development has been achieved by W1zzard, the lead geek at TechPowerUp.
