Anyone having odd idle clocks stuck at 607 MHz instead of 139 MHz?

    Hi all,

    I am sure this has been happening to my system for a while, but I recently had a need to install MSI/RTSS for frame limiting and noticed that often my GPU idle clock gets stuck at 607 MHz and will not downclock further to 139 MHz. I thought I had identified the issue being hardware acceleration in MS Edge (Chromium) but have noticed recently that GOG Galaxy or random windows processes will use GPU cycles and disallow it from downclocking to 139 MHz. It's more of an annoyance than anything at this point, but wondered if others see the same.

    Specs:
    1080Ti Strix
    Win10 1903 & 1909
    Hotfix 436.51 (occurred with 436.48 also)
    G-sync enabled for FSE only

    A couple years back I had this happening, turns out a miner somehow got on. I'll give them credit though, they didn't take the chip to full speed or else I would have caught it right away. Check and see what is starting with windows and or watch task manager.

    I had the same problem, reverted back to older drivers and the problem was solved.

    Interesting. Which driver were you on and which seemed to fix the issue?

    If I’m not mistaken, it was 436.48 which had the issue. 436.15 fixed it again.
