stefanhondasiWhy would be a driver problem? 3090 and 3080 FE have 0 problems. It’s more cheap parts to charge more problem.....
kringI have 3090 FTW3 Ultra and find my GPU is stuck at 1800 and mem stuck at 9752 all the time when at the desktop idle. I did find that once it dropped and I don't know what let it do that (went down to somewhere in area of 200 to 400 mhz for both). but after reboots, reinstall drivers, killing all apps.. it still seems to be stuck on max speed. any suggestions? anyone else with similar issues? I'm guessing it's just a driver issue.
arestavoYou could try the Studio version of the drivers. There was a guy who had all sorts of issues with the game ready drivers on his 3090 FTW3, and no issue with the Studio version.
MDG73 What windows power profile are you using? The balanced will allow the card to clock down the high performance will keep it locked.
the_Scarlet_one If you are running max performance, the clocks will stay at max.
kringProviding an update. I am still regularly having this issue. it's definitely hardware/firmware related as removing the device, hard power down does not unstick the clocks and it's not an app driving it either. I created a support ticket a few days ago but haven't had a response from EVGA yet. So at this point my card is stuck at factory max clocks, while it's not hitting the card hard it is increasing my temps by 12c and it's pulling 125w at what should be idle.
kringMDG73 What windows power profile are you using? The balanced will allow the card to clock down the high performance will keep it locked. I run a balanced, but I do force on in Nvidia Control Panel 3D settings to "Prefer Maximum Performance" otherwise there's all hell of issues with Nvidia cards. (unstable performance, windows WMI maxing out a CPU core, etc... After my clean install of the Studio drivers I went into control panel & set to max again and the gpu is staying low at idle.
