Overclocking Support Getting Booted Out Of Nvidia GTX 900M

Do you use an Nvidia GTX 900M in your setup? Is your PC overclocked? You’ll need to read this news.

Nvidia has revealed they are removing overclocking support for the GTX 900M. Shockingly, Nvidia claims this is because that support was a bug, and not a feature.

This is the statement from Nvidia’s Manuel Guzman:

Unfortunately GeForce Notebooks were not designed to support overclocking. Overclocking is by no means a trivial feature, and depends on thoughtful design of thermal, electrical, and other considerations. By overclocking a notebook, a user risks serious damage to the system that could result in non-functional systems, reduced notebook life, or many other effects.
There was a bug introduced into our drivers which enabled some systems to overclock. This was fixed in a recent update. Our intent was not to remove features from GeForce notebooks, but rather to safeguard systems from operating outside design limits.
