Is overclocking the D500 or D700 enabled in windows? As we know the GPU's come underclocked for thermal reasons but I was curious if you could still adjust their clock speed like you can with regular radeon cards, and see if there was some head room for more performance.

On Apple rMBPs it is possible so I'm guessing you should be able to but probably the nMP being very new and all will not be "modded" yet until a few months time perhaps?

I hope someone can just jump into the drivers and see if the clock speed is unlocked right away, come on guys. Help a fellow enthusiast out. :)

I have been able one way or another to overclock all GPU's in my Mac Pro's. AMD or Nvidia. Get the utility and start tweaking. It all comes down to support though and I don't have a nMP. Don't need anything just yet.
