    Sounds like it's still far off.
    Actually not. I will try to get it into the normal before summer 2017 hidden behind a module option. There are some things, which should be implemented before enabling it by default: software throttling on high temperature. But for dynamic relocking most of the things are already implemented in a git tree of mine.

    Quick question, is there a reason for using the 750 GTX versus say a 770 or 780GTX? I have a 770GTX and I'm curious to know if there are issues with the card. I currently don't run a desktop system but am considering using it in an external GPU case until I get funds together for a new GPU.
    i know i don't talk for everyone, but i have a gtx 750 ti low profile card. no need for beefier psu, and the card is smaller. still delivers satisfactory performance for my needs.

    Because these improvements covered in this article cover only Maxwell and newer. GM107 / Maxwell 1 is GTX 750 series where as rest of Maxwell series is GTX 900 series. Rest of non-750 GTX 700 series is all Kepler based. In other benchmarks where I am looking at Kepler performance too I do include the GTX 780 Ti and what not.

    Nope. This has nothing to do with the proprietary driver, it's improvements to the OSS driver.

    Which is why NVidia and Valve won't care about this. They'll stick with the proprietary driver which already has the higher performance and a lot more stability.

    *Reclocking
    God I hate spell correct and swype keyboard. It consistently destroys my sentences if I even look away for one tiny fraction of a moment.

    *receiving ^ No editing comment? Why?

    Wouldn't it behoove Valve and Nvidia to aggressively get this implemented across all GPU's that can utilize it and enable recording?

    If so this kind of makes a stronger argument for laptop gaming if you can keep the GPU cooled down with one of those laptop vent fan attachments. I wonder what the effects are on efficiency and heat. I'm sure you'll eventually get to measuring those.
