If it is the cards pulling too much voltage/amperage to accomplish shader X or Y number of polygons, I do not know.... but it is repeatable and can be seen repeatedly on any of the graphs I posted.
To those that think it was my cpu limiting the gpu, if that were the case the cards would not jump to 100% near the end/begining of the tests and would stay low always.... and the one time I monitored both the gpu usage and the cpu usage, the cpu should have been maxed when the gpu was dipping, but that wasn't the case.....
The major issue I have is...It's not all being reported as the same usage.
Aida will show 90/30 ~ Keep in mind, this is an award winning monitoring/server monitoring program that's far beyond reproach.
Precision will show 60/40 ~ Sometimes innacurate but, good program.
MSI will show 70/35 ~ Again, same as precision.
Benchmarks = 60/60 ~ 50/50 ~ AND an Evga tech has stated SEVERAL times on their forums, there are ISSUES with scaling and GPU usage reports.
At this point, I'm siding with Aida...If it says 90/30, while Jacob is saying benches are having issues...That's what it is.
If it's a cause of the OCP, I'm by far no expert but, I do have to side with these guys that it IS 90/30 regardless of what the benches are reporting...
While I don't approve of Pedro's "desktop paperweight" persona, I do agree that the higher core is the one limited and if it's the 2nd core in our case, this makes a lot of sense.
So at this point, it's clearly, at least IMO, a situation of hopefully drivers will fix the "scaling" issues a lot of us are seeing.
