Forceware Limits 7800GTX Overclocking

NVIDIA has confirmed a bug in its current driver software that prevents serious overclocking – by shutting down a graphics card not just when it runs too hot, but also too cool. The graphic chip will switch into software protection mode when die temperatures reach a range of 30 to 35 degrees Celsius. Effects of the activation of software protection mode can range from a decrease in clock speed or even a shutdown of the card. According to Nvidia, the issue is based solely on software and will be corrected with a new driver version that is scheduled to be available by mid-July.
