Anyone tried it yet what that means exactly? More or less power usage?

Basically, it means the power handling and clocking of the card is handled closer to what the old "Prefer Maximum Performance" power-state setting that the control panel offered. It does increase power usage slightly but not significantly from what I've found, and it helps with stuttering and some other issues that the power-save feature caused in certain games.

Does that also mean they removed the god damn turbo crap?
