OK peeps, I have posted a couple of times regarding my 1080ti being stuck at 1556mhz at desktop idle using this or any of the 456.38 drivers onwards. Today I discovered a very confusing thing. If I disable HAGS my 1080ti will not downclock lower than 1556mhz idle on the desktop. You will find rocking horse sh*t before my card will go any lower (regardless of 456.38 onwards). However, if I enable HAGS my card suddenly wants to behave rationally & down clocks to the correct 139mhz @ desktop idle. What the hell is this? I have tested this with over 30 different windows power/NVCP settings/Inspector settings/with GFE/without GFE and the behaviour is consistent, regardless of settings... Anybody at all got any ideas what's going on here? Is this how HAGS is designed to improve min frames? by holding the gpu at a higher clock in preperation for a load demand that may or may not come or is this an Nvidia thing? Don't mind leaving HAGS on as NVidia say they fixed their sh*t & I dont seem to be experiencing any pain from its enablement but is this really the way they fixed the perf regression with HAGS?
