My gtx 1050 ti for some reason NEVER uses below 45% power ( 40 Watts ) even when it's underclocked and is on idle. Is there something wrong with my card?



As you see my gpu is not under any use and is even downclocked but still uses 45% Power somehow.

I've tried changing the power management mode to adaptive, optimal but neither helped.

I use a single 1080p 60 hz monitor if that matters.

Any help is appreciated.

What should I specifically check on it? I've tried reinstalling the drivers, even reinstalled windows but didn't seem to help

Doesn't seem to recognize my card if i use safe mode

I mean it can't possibly use 40 watts for a gpu that is not under load and is downclocked to 139 mhz right? Could it just be a bad sensor on the gpu?
