Hey y'all, I recently built a shiny new computer, and it has been working perfectly. I am rocking a evga 2060 xc black edition gpu.
I ran some benchmarks on the rig after building it, and every was doing alright, but after a week, I come back to see if I could heighten my scores, and the graphics card is scoring in the 12th percentile now as compared to it scoring in the 61th percentile before. The only difference that I can see is using evga precision X1 to monitor the gpu temps.
For reference, before: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/18771515
and After: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/19026600
Any help, or ideas?

use DDU to uninstall drivers and downgrade to 419.67. nvidia is know to decrease performance with new drivers to force people to buy their new products.
Utter utter utter BS. And before you start quoting tin foiled reddit threads:

OP, it occasionally happens that an update has issues (it's normally pulled), in which case reverting to an earlier version might help, but later versions would then work as the issue is resolved.

On the other hand it could be any one of a number of other issue.

It could be clocking lower, it could be a power profile issue.

You have been super helpful so far. If it is clocking lower, or as a power profile issue, could you provide documentation to help troubleshoot?
