Is this normal behavior?

Recommended Posts

So i have my evga ftw3 ultra 2080Ti to under water full custom build.  My temps reaches max 48-49 max 50. But when im playing cod for example in the menu of the game. I see it goes to 1950mhz why im losing 15hz? Its not even reaching the temp for boost clock 51c.

Because int he menu of the game, not much is happening, so the GPU slows down a bit to conserve power?

No because i have my fps set to unlimited in the menu, and i see my gpu power and usage at 99% and gpu power is like 101%. So a lot happening in the menu.

it's possible that the gpu could still reduce it's clocks a bit if it's too easy for it to pump out frames (with low frametimes), even if you set it to unlimited...

 

You could also just OC it, if you really need more fps.

It's a menu, I'd be more concerned if it was happening in the gameplay itself.

Honestly, I wouldn't lose sleep over it.

It happens in games of course i reach 51c.

It could be a case of rounding too. Since it might start to reduce the boost by one step at 50.5c or something silly like that. Either way we are talking 15mhz which isn't even 1%. So you are losing 1 fps. Honestly being a ftw3 I would grab afterburner or precision (probably precision with an evga card) and have it run the auto-overclock and then save the profile. You should be able to get that card to 2050mhz at a min and another 500+ on the memory. So you would gain much more than you are losing for this and the temps of the card probably would stay largely unchanged on water (in my experience).

Try undervolting and/or manually overclocking. From my experience, GPU Boost 4.0 is super temperature sensitive, and just undervolting (without even applying any manual overclocking settings) actually resulted in my GPU running at a higher core clock (like 60+ MHz), just because it's running at a few degrees lower.

I don't really get why it works this way because even at 70C you still have a significant amount of headroom, but I guess that's just the way it is.

What about the afterburner?

I mentioned it too. Both it and precision are good options. So just go with the one you prefer. I mean spending the money on an ftw card and not using the free and easy auto OC tools is pretty much wasting some free performance.

The lack of load maybe? Check gpuz and it will tell you the reason. 
Don’t see why it matters as that one step isn’t noticeable. Just like all the other steps you are losing from it running at 50c.
