    Hi, @Dude
    Stalk evga or get it directly from NVidia
    GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Graphics Cards | NVIDIA GeForce

    If from NVidia 699.us by the way you can plan on adding a evga hybrid kit too for the pisspoor cooling of the reference card has

    Hi,
    Yep hardware monitoring must be on or you get the annoying message like G-Sync one which is a weird one there seeing at times I'm not connected to the gsync monitor
    Possibly the freaking NVidia driver activates gsync with or without a monitor capable of using it :/

    Mike, I know in Nvidia CP, if you mess with Adjust Image Settings with a Preview, you will get the G Sync warning no matter what monitor you have. I'm still not sure if it makes a difference, as long as G Sync is not actually enabled, but you will get the warning.

    The new perf mode would be coming to Windows 10 Codenamed Redstone 4, the Spring Creators Update. Its Insider builds have been separated from the active development of Windows 10, reports fossbytes; Now, the insiders who earlier opted into ‘Skip Ahead’ and are still a part of it will receive Windows 10 Preview Builds under the RS_PRERELEASE branch, featuring the changes that may arrive with Redstone 5. Non-Skip Ahead users will get builds from the RS4_RELEASE branch.


    As the name suggests, the power mode is designed for heavy-duty machines that can’t afford to cut down on performance during processing of extensive workloads. Microsoft’s Dona Sarkar said in the announcement post that they have been able to find areas in Windows where performance and efficiency trade-off is made and a collection of settings allows the system to adjust itself according to the user behavior, policy, and hardware.

    “This new policy builds on the current High-Performance policy, and it goes a step further to eliminate micro-latencies associated with fine-grained power management techniques.”

    It goes without saying that the new power policy would require the system to consume more power while exploiting the hardware to its fullest. That’s why Ultimate Performance won’t be available on battery-powered Windows 10 PCs. Both OEM’s and users would be able to select the power plan as per their will.

    Is there anything that explains just how that mode works ? Are there more settings than in normal Power Saving modes ' I usually just make my own Power Plan where everything is set to 100% and nothing turned off to "save power".
