Hi guys,

Recently I bought a new GPU of a friend of mine, its a GeForce GTX 1050ti made by gigabyte, and after I installed its drivers my network speeds dropped massively, previously I was getting about 15mb/s however now I get about 300kb/s.
However I realised that when the GPU timed out the network speed would increase again back up to about 4mb/s. I was wondering if their was a way to prioritize the NICs power over the GPUs.
Thanks for reading and I hope you can help me :)

That's not "power". The GPU isn't taking "power" away from the NIC.

Full specifications please. Most specifically: What motherboard? That will tell us what NIC you're using. The problem is likely that your NIC Is a "soft" NIC and uses compression via the CPU to T/R data. If you go into CPU perormance in Task Mananger and then do a upload/download test like SpeedTest, do you see a spike in CPU utilization?

So, of course, we would also want to know what CPU you're using.
