Question GPU power draw


Aug 5, 2019
Hi All,

I have a question which i am noticing on everyday.

My RTX 3080 Ti GPU is drawing 18 -20 W power when its idle.

But whenever I open any kind of application/software (Like Edge browser, HW info etc). My GPU power draw got spike around 90 watt for 1 or 2 sec until that particular application not fully get opened.

Is it a normal thing? or do I need to do something.

I have already tried to do enable/disable hardware acceleration GPU scheduling in windows 11. Same result as above.
