301.24 with GTX 460: GPU clock randomly stuck at 203 mhz
With the 301.24 beta drivers, after a while of gaming, my GTX 460 got stuck at 203 mhz (according to gpu-z, and the performance went down to an appropriate level for that clock speed),
with only a hard reset restoring normal clock behavior.
This happened to me multiple times already, seemingly at random, while playing different games, watching videos in flash player, etc.
Has this happened to anyone else?

Same problem here with Gainward Golden Sample 550Ti. I just got low fps ingame because clock get stuck. Battlefield 3 at 6-8 FPS.

Yes, I mentioned it in BR4DDERS' topic. The new drivers are not handling Fermi clock domains properly.
