    Question GTX 970 clock speed drops under load [video included]

    Hi all, I've ran into an issue recently with my Asus Strix GTX 970 where my GPU clock will seemingly throttle due to power under load, however the power consumption never goes above 60%. The clock will idle at full speed, and even revert back to full speed when I alt tab from a game. Only when...

    Hi I've been recently experiencing FPS drops on my laptop in all games and benchmarking tools. the FPS count would drop to about a third of the normal amount for about 10 seconds, then jump back to normal.

    Question CPU clocks max even during idle

    I'm currently using an ASUS ROG G531GT with an i7 9750h and the idle memory clock of the CPU is always above 4 ghz while once I put it under any sort of load it throttles down to somewhere around 3.2 ghz. My laptop is on balanced mode and I have never overclocked it. I applied a 0.120V undervolt...

    [SOLVED] CPU 100% for games with stuttering. Is it bottleneck or an issue?

    So, I haven't got an amazing understanding of throttling, overclocking or any of this stuff. I enjoy games and like to run them as good as I can afford to. Currently I'm aware my CPU is behind the rest of my machine and plan to upgrade it and my mobo sometime soon. However, in the past week or 2...

    Question XPS 15 7590: GPU throttle at low(ish) temps

    I have the Dell XPS 15 7590 (i7-9750H, GTX 1650, 16GB). For some reason while gaming, my GPU is throttling on any voltage higher than 0.7V, even though max temp did not exceed 66 degrees Celcius! So it cannot be GPU temp-induced throttling I think. Using Afterburner, I tested various voltages...

    Question SOLVED: My RTX 2070 notebook GPU drops clock to 1200 intermittently ingame, not overheating. Why?

    Hi, I have an ASUS ROG Strix Scar II laptop with an RTX 2070 and 8750h. During a game -particularly BF5 - I have great performance hitting over 100fps most of the time, then occasionally my GPU seems to hit a power limit and go to an idle state as seen in GPU-Z. When the GPU goes to its idle...

    Question CPU Harsh Throttling BD PRCHOT

    I have a HP Pavilion laptop with an i7-7500u and a gt 940mx. It plays games as expected although runs hot, about 50c when it's been idling for a bit and the heatsink has equalised temperature, up to 80c when stressed. At this temperature I'd expect some thermal throttling, which it does, going...
