    ShadowPlay + 980Ti = 595mhz Core Clock?

    So yesterday I decided to give ShadowPlay a try and I really like the program. Quality is great and performance hit while gaming seems very minimal when compared to Dxtory and Fraps & the file size is tiny. One problem I did notice was that the Core Clock on my 980Ti was stuck at 595mhz when...

    980Ti with NZXT G10?
