I saw that there was a previous message about this, but when I went to reply there, it recommended I start a new topic since the thread hadn't been posted in for a while.
I have an Intel i5 3210M Ivy Bridge processor that has the HD4000 graphics. After installing new drivers and the latest version of BOINC, BOINC now recognizes my GPU and utilizes it. However, TThrottle isn't detecting the GPU. Therefor, I can't throttle it. Another program I found (CPU-Z) does detect it and tells me temp and speed, but doesn't have anything that would allow me to throttle it. Now that many projects are added tasks that work on Intel GPU, can we get an update of TThrottle that will also recognize and throttle them.
Right now, when my computer starts to warm up TThrottle only throttles the CPU, not the GPU. However, most times, that actually causes the GPU to run up to it's max and much hotter. I've learned that this is because this opens up more CPU resources that many GPU based tasks also need to feed the GPU info, thus allowing the GPU the ability to run full out. Unfortunately, this just causes the system to heat up faster/higher which then leads to TThrottle clamping down further on the CPU causing a cascade effect until it reaches the point that all the computer is actually running are GPU tasks only. So right now, it seems I can have GPU can either run at max (without CPU tasks really being processed) or not at all.
Is there a way to get TThrottle to recognize these Intel GPUs and allow us to throttle them like it does for other GPUs? This would really help save many Intel computers from having these problems. Also, many projects are adding more and more tasks for Intel GPU processing, so it'd be great to have a TThrottle that could handle them. Please! add this.
