ProDigitI was about to ask how the new drivers are doing.On Boinc, I've also seen the 1350Mhz lock on the newer 440.31 Linux drivers.The 1350 Mhz lock seems to have something to do with overclocking.While older drivers would tune down the overclocking the higher you went (overclock +30Mhz would do +30Mhz, overclock +100Mhz would actually end up doing ~+75Mhz), these drivers, as soon as an error happens, go into limp mode.To undo, you'd have to lower the OC, and pause the GPU load. Then restart the load with a lower OC.It's a good way to see if you overclocked too high for FAH but for Boinc it's actually quite annoying, as Boinc doesn't tax the GPU 100%. It has a lot of dips, where the load decreases, and thus the GPU speed increases.I've seen peaks of on my lower end RTX cards of up to 2070Mhz, when the load dropped. No wonder they freeze.This new way of overclocking means, I can no longer overclock precisely, and the drivers are more wonky.All it takes is a small dip in the load, or spike in the GPU frequency, and limp mode is on.I spent my entire day today looking at the numbers, and I'm definitely not fond of this newer driver issue!It means I'll have to reconfigure all my overclocking settings (right when I just had them perfect).
ProDigitI've seen this under Folding and Boinc.I'm not running seti, but a few other projects that run GPUs.
Cool GTXthanks bcav
Vlada011Someone use studio driver for gaming? No?
ProDigitI currently have no issues under 430.64 for linux.Odd note: 430.64 drivers were released 1 day after driver 440.31.An earlier driver released after a later driver..
ProDigitSolo for the moment being, unless there are substantial benefits to join a team.
bcavnaughThis issues was tested only under Windows 10 1903 and only SETI seems to cause this odd 1350 MHz Lockup with Newer Drivers only on RTX Graphics Cards.

ProDigitbcavnaughThis issues was tested only under Windows 10 1903 and only SETI seems to cause this odd 1350 MHz Lockup with Newer Drivers only on RTX Graphics Cards.The 1350Mhz lockup was also present under Linux, running FAH, on overclocked GPUs. Since I've lowered the overclocking, I haven't bumped into any issues anymore.
ProDigitPerhaps the following information may be of use:I did notice that some projects don't fully utilize the GPU.When looking at the wattage, I noticed that the 1350Mhz lockup mostly happened (or it could be coincidence), on those projects.When the GPU power threshold surpasses 50%, and the card isn't under full load, scenarios happen where the GPU is cool enough to run at full boost speeds for prolonged times. THere may be a possibility this is linked to the GPU frequency lockup issues.
bcavnaughSeeing Issues Running SETI under an RTX Graphics Card.Seems kill the GPU @ 1350 MHz This is NOT the so called 1350 MHz BUG that others have posted this is Driver Based Issue and Not the Graphics Card.
ProDigitbcavnaughSeeing Issues Running SETI under an RTX Graphics Card.Seems kill the GPU @ 1350 MHz This is NOT the so called 1350 MHz BUG that others have posted this is Driver Based Issue and Not the Graphics Card.I've noted another possibility of the 1350Mhz bug,Check your GPU load.If it's below 50% on a project, your GPU will run at 'half speed' (or near to half speed).I've found this to be true on Einstein@home projects.I've written my config settings to load up to 3 Einstein tasks per GPU, and get a 112-140Watts (of 170Watts) load most of the time.Though sometimes it does dip back to the 40-65Watts, so I'm not sure how effective it really is...Edit: it still shows only 1 GPU project on the Nvidia GPU active; I guess the config settings they mention in their manual, don't really work.Adding multiple projects per GPU, allows the GPU to run at it's full boost speed if the load is above 50% (85Watts in my case)...Or, it's all coincidence, and Boinc is finally getting bigger GPU projects.... Just thought it's yet another possible reason for the 1350 GPU lock (this lock also doesn't allow you to use overclocking settings to increase the boost clock speed).
