Spot on. Thus, all it takes is a single driver fsck-up and untold amounts of data are garbage. In fact, it's worse than that. If there ever was a driver release that is producing garbage, effectively no results thereafter can be trusted again until the client can detect the driver version and shut down. One might hope that the error checking would catch such issues, but if it cannot do this with 100% reliability, then the knock on effects just don't bear thinking about.

In the second after I hit winamp play button the cards VRM's Amps hit from 22A to 55-75 and in that same second my PPD jumps by 5000points. Then it fluctuates between 55A and 75A. Not second after or before. Not 1000 PPD or 2000 but even 40%-65%. Usually from 8000PPD to 13000PPD. In the same second I hit stop (edited-->not pause), production decreases by that same amount (about 5000PPD). In that same second cards VRM's get back to 22A and starts fluctuating from 22-75A -not between 55A and 75A. Same time I hear famous squeking form the card, and the noise is very much continuous.
I can reproduce this by hitting play button and it works every single time. 100% confirmed. I can even make a videoclip of this, but this is true, believe me! This is not working on 57xx or other projects though. On these 185.xx drivers, projects 57xx works normally ie my card hits to 85celsius and VRM aperage fluctuates only marginally from 72 to 75A.
