What may be happening is a power issue. Your GPU will lower its clock speed when it doesn’t get enough power from PSU or its getting to hot. This happens for several reasons:

  1. PSU is not putting out enough watts to supply the whole system under max load.
  2. the gpu is getting to hot and it will lower the clock speed and power consumption to bring temperatures down.
