In the next update I'd like to see nvidia fix this issue. I use a 2070 super with afterburner, and I'm having issues with my card refusing to downclock after I've set my power setting to "maximum performance" in the global settings within the nvidia control panel. I never had this issue until recently, everytime I set it to maximum performance on global, it gets stuck until I change it back to optimal or adaptive and then reboot. Completely bizarre that this happened out of nowhere. I tried rolling back to a differnt driver but that didnt help. I personally never had my GPU refusing to downclock in the past even with the power setting in the control panel set to "maximum performance".
Thats not a bug, you set it to max perf and you get max performance.
They won't change this just because you refuse to use the proper settings that would be suitable for your needs. Adaptive power.

I'm not certain. I swear I've always had it set to maximum performance on global and never had any issues with downclocking. I assumed the global settings only applied to the games I was playing, not my desktop.
That is how it's supposed to work.
Just use adaptive the only difference is you'll use less electricity when idling as your card will be allowed to proper downclock.
