6800xt clock speed at idle

Very normal. GPU clocks down when youre not using much of it.

Hi,

     i am using 6800xt by Power color and its running at 7 to 100 mhz (GPU) when idle but when i am playing a game (Overwatch or GTA5) my clock speed goes upto at max of 1500 mhz(again GPU) but when i am mining it goes over 2000mhz is it normal plus can any one tell me what should be the idle temp for gpu whether its mining or gaming. BTW gpu setting are at default i havent changed anything also please tell me waht should be the optimum clockspeed 

P.S  I am novice at this stuff so i dont know if this is normal or not

 

 

CONFIG

CPU : R5 5600X

MB : Asus Strix  x570-F gaming

GPU : Power Color 6800xt

Does this mean you are not undervolting while mining? If so you are wasting a lot of power for less performance.

I also have a 6800XT, while mining the clock speed is set to 1360 MHz, and memory to 2150MHz. This gives me 63 MH/s at 164W

If you want me to answer, please use the quote function or tag me. I dont get notified unless you do

yeah normal behavior. RDNA2 specifically has quite the aggressive powersaving profile and when there is essentially any idle time, it essentially "turns off" the core in terms of clockspeed and voltage.
