I badly require assistance in fixing my GPU Clock speed and usage issue!

Go to solution Solved by Skiiwee29,

if you want your GPU to run at higher clocks, even at idle, if its an Nvidia card, open up Nvidia control panel and set your Preferred power to Maximum.

I badly require assistance in fixing my GPU Clock speed and usage issue!

 

Okay so to being with...I turned on my PC this evening to be greeted with a NZXT Cam Software update and ever since i am having issues...I ended up uninstalling cam and reinstalled the latest version and i am having some weird results...So i was getting and am still getting weird behaviour like my RTX 2070 GPU running at 300Mhz clock speed when am used to it always running at its factory clocked 1410Mhz with a boost to 1710Mhz but it stays at 300Mhz regardless if am idle at Desktop...

 

Wallpaper Engine looks odd as its reporting a GPU usage of 20% instead of its usual 2% load...

 

Wallpaper Engine using 20% GPU Usage Seriously?

 

I've always and always will have my machine well optimized so noticing something like this is a red flag...

 

I have tried changing to different wallpapers and they all perform the exact same whereas before they used to differ i reckon this is a bug but i want to hear from you all here in the comments below...

Okay...So i have tried closing Wallpaper Engine and it GPU load bouncing down to the 0-2% load that's good i guess...Issue still at hand is the Clock speed of my GPU is still stuck at a pathetic 300Mhz...I tried going into BIOS and changing PCIE to Gen 2 from Auto with no success again i looked up this issue and am seriously stuck

as for the 2-20% jump, if its running at that speed at idle, i can see why the percentage jumped that much. does it work fine, and show the normal clocks under load?

Low Mhz is normal in idle. Even 300Mhz sounds high. Boost speed in idle would be unnormal. Did you run a benchmark to see what its doing under load?

Is there a reason you want to run the GPU on max speed in idle? There is no benefit, only unecessary stress to the GPU.

Turns out my Nvidia Control panel settings has been set to default even my G Sync was off weirdly enough and Vsync as well as Power usage as the gent up above said it was reverted to defaults...so weird why it messed my settings as i havent changed anything recently unless bloody cam software is the culprit again

 

much thanks everyone that was murder hours trying to troubleshoot lol

 

my GPU is back to a nice 2% load with wallpaper engine so am all happy again
