[GPU Tool] EVGA OC Scanner 1.5.0 With GPU Load Limiter
The new version of EVGA GPU stress test tool and artifact scanner is available. OC Scanner 1.5.0 adds the support of GeForce GTX 580 and GTX 570 with a new feature: a GPU load limiter. The GPU load limiter (or GPU load regulator) allows to keep the GPU load to a specified value in order to prevent the throttling back of the GPU by GTX 500 OCP (over current protection). On my EVGA GTX 580 SC, I found that a good value for the GPU load is 90%. With a GPU load of 90%, the card runs at full speed while keeping the power draw in the specifications.
