Question ROG G733QSA Laptop, very rare issue with GPU -- need help !

Mar 3, 2021
Very Bizzare Issue with the 3080 Mobile, the card refuses to run at full clock speed ?

I've uploaded a video to showcase the issue:

Every time I boot up the laptop the graphics card would just run at a very low clock speed (around 700Mhz)
, I can only fix it by either restarting the laptop, or by changing the profile in Asus Armoury Crate to “Silent” and then change it back to Performance/Turbo. (Note that it has to be Silent mode, changing it from Turbo to Performance/Performance to Turbo would not work)

Very annoying issue, and seems to be a very rare issue, because I can't seem to find anyone online who encountered anything similar ever.

Does anyone know what’s going on and how do I fix this?

I’ve also tried the following, all of which didn’t work:

1. completely uninstalling Armoury Crate, didn’t fix it, so could be a hardware issue rather than a software one.

2. Re-installing Windows, didn’t work BIOS is the latest version (303), graphics card drivers is also the latest (461.72)

Note that this only happens when I boot the laptop when it’s off, so could lead to some clue?
