With the in-development Linux 4.4 kernel, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 600/700 series (Kepler) graphics cards are manually re-clocking a lot better to allow better performance on this unofficial NVIDIA Linux driver.

In my testing so far of the post-4.4-rc1 code, the Kepler re-clocking with graphics cards using GDDR5 video memory is indeed working much better!
