I hope somebody here can help me understand the voltage measurements on my (new) Gigabyte Aorus master.
I am running an 8086k on it in normal//offset mode @5.1 GHz. I run with C-states enabled, EIST disabled and speed-shift enabled (with autonomous mode in the OS). Behavior is same for EIST enabled instead.
Below is a HWINFO64 screen snapshot of vcore and VR VOUT illustrating drops in vcore when there is no corresponding drop in VR VOUT. If I disable all C-states, it is the same. If I disable speed-shift (EIST already disabled), then there is no drop of voltage in either measurement as you should expect. This leads me to believe that the vcore drops are real and due to speed-shift (or alternatively EIST) lowering voltage as it is supposed to do. My question is is that correct and, if so, why no corresponding VR VOUT drop?
