I have the following GPU that I have only had for just over 1 month:

MSI GeForce RTX 4070 VENTUS 2X E 12G OC

Over the last 5 days, the GPU has been throttling, plummeting GPU usage and FPS whilst in games (games that I have been running up until this point with no issue).

I have installed HWINFO64 and can confirm that when this happens, GPU and CPU temps are low 55-65oC


What would cause a throttle like this with low temps? Looking at everything else within HWINFO64, everything looks to be ok but these sudden drops to 3-4% GPU Utilisation and 10 FPS are driving me insane.

Is this a common problem? What would cause this throttle?
 
Could be the game problem though, does it happen on every games? Does it only happen during transition of the scene or menu page?
Do you experience noticeable stutter in game?
Try set windows power plan to ultimate or extreme mode in MSI Center?

Thank you for your comment.

This is happening on all games. Even games that I have been playing nightly for the last month without issue. This happens in normal gameplay. Noticeable stutter when utilisation drops and fps drops to around 10fps from 117.
Windows power plan is set to perfornance.
 
Where and how did you checked that's throttling?
Can you list system specs too? Like PSU, CPU and rest of info, see >>Posting Guide<<

Add-on:
Can you run GPU-Z in background and log the GPU usage while running those games,
and provide the log file?
Have you checked CPU for overheating issues too?

Also do test with 3DMark and post the results.

Thank you for your comment.

Other specs:
S300 case
BeQuiet SFX-L 600w
Asrock B650i Lightning Wifi
Ryzen 5 7600
Noctua NH-L9a-AM5 CPU Cooler

I can see this throttle in game with the plummet of GPU utilisation and FPS. I have now downloaded GPU-Z to capture logs and will also download 3DMark for testing too.
 
Got it, its tiny PC case. Probably you have some overheating issue, either CPU or GPU or combined.

Thank you for looking.
If this was the issue, why would the GPU and CPU temps show temperatures below 65oC?

Also, I have been using this case for and setup for a couple of months now with no issue until now. These are the reasons I am confused by it.

Any advice on this would be appreciated.
 
If you have throttling, it would show up in HWINFO in the thermals section.
