At some point after having my system powered on, while the system was
4 days on idle, my GTX 1080 becomes permanently throttled in 3d. The
graphics clock was halved from a maximum of 1950-1960mhz (factory OC) to
1285mhz . When this occurs, it doesn't matter how much I load my card,
be it games or other demanding applications, it does not ever go past
the above caps. The only solution I have had up until now was to reboot
the system .GPU-Z reports the "perfcap" reason as PWR
And it happened just once.
I have 0 driver crashes. And normally the event log will show the
drive crash report which in my case it doesn't show. So its not related
to driver crash.
I have SLEEP and HIBERNATE setting TURN OFF to NEVER. Turn off Monitor have after 15 minutes.
Here is a picture:
PC: 6700K no OC
2x8GB Kingston Hyperx
Corsair 750 RM
Gigabyte Gtx 1080 Xtreme
SSD Crucial Bx 100 256 GB
Is my hardware GPU failing?
But maybe some kind of unstable factory oc by my card? Mini crash?
