Why use the cd at all when you can download up to date rather than outdated drivers?

Already resolved this.

If anybody else currently has problems with compiling/running CUDALucas on their 1080's under Linux, you can view a solution here.

Does anybody know if and/or how I can disable the 'boost' function on a GTX1080TI (ASUS) in Win10 ??

According to GPU-Z the cards default clocks are:
Default 1493 MHz
Boost 1607 MHz

Yet when I start Mfaktc it goes all the way to 1700-1750 MHz (performance cap reason TDP) in the sensor tab in GPU-Z.

I tried using the GPU Tweak II utility from ASUS (it has 3 standard profiles and I made a new profile with:

GPU Boost Clock : 1493 MHz
Fan speed: Auto
GPU voltage: auto
Power Target: 75%
Temp Target: 70C

But then it still boosts (now only to 1518-1556 MHz), while I would expect it to just run constantly at 1493 MHz (since boost = default frequency). It achieves the goal I intended (making the card more power efficient), but I'm curious if I can just disable it all together.

Before (default):
~1450 GHzdayd | 100%TDP | 1700-1750 MHz (performance cap reason in GPU-Z: pwr)
Now:
~1300 GHzdayd | 75%TDP | 1518-1556 MHz (performance cap reason is still: pwr)

Which works out to 242 and 289 GHzd/kWh (an improvement of almost 20% in efficiency, while at 90% performance).
I haven't double checked it yet using my Wattmeter, but it looks like boost frequencies need a lot of extra voltage/power, for little gain.

There is supposedly a program out there some where from Nvidia called SetStablePowerState.exe but darned if I can find any place to actually download it. It might only a sample program provided in the SDK or you might have to download the source and compile yourself.

My 1080 is a GigaByte. There is a tweak application on the included CD called AORUS Graphics Engine." Below is a link to their site.

I had not been aware of the Aorus line from Gigabyte. Impressive collection.

Aorus is a software application, on the same order as MSI AfterBurner. I've have it installed, but I do not use it. I just wanted to see what all was in it.

Aorus is a brand, the "luxury" gaming line, from Gigabyte. It ranges from simple screws to full systems. Of course, the toys in the box need software too, but it is not only a "software" product.

Thank you! I was not aware of this.
