So, who really knows what is actually happening, when looking at GPU-Z's max values. It may have spiked well above 104% TDP between the 0.1 seconds it was looking.
That is true. But when run long enough, would it not catch some higher values over a longer period? Eventually one would think that it would be polling the information at a higher TDP?
And if it is true like you said, and it is in fact power throttling, i find it weird that just an increase of +10 on the memory would make it go totally banans. It's like no perfcaps what so ever. Increase by +10 on the mem clock and it goes mental.
Really annoying that i cant get an understand of it.
EDIT: I can even run the card at 2088 without pwr throttle, but once the temp goes above whatever in the 30-40C range it goes down to 2075, then again down to 2062 on somewhere in the 50's. (soft temp throttle)Edited by viz0id - 4/25/17 at 6:32am
