GPU downclocking while gaming without getting hot.
« on: 08-December-17, 03:04:35 »

I bought this laptop 2 weeks ago. When I started playing games on it I've seen that the frames drop from 120 to 30 for a few seconds regularly. msi afterburner gpu monitor has shown me that the gpu clock drops from 1800mhz to 800 mhz for a few seconds. I've done clean installs of every software and configured everything to max performance. It's not the temperatures this problem happens from a cold boot too. Is my laptop defective. I shouldnt have to undervolt my cpu just to get rid of this problem.
EDIT: laptop model is MSI GE72MVR 7RG gpu is gtx1070

This sounds like something stole your cpu. Your game didnt lose FPS because your video card down clocked, your video card down clocked because the frame rate was so low because the cpu fell behind.

If the power adapter can't offer enough power to laptop, the CPU/GPU will drop the frequency to lower level and save the energy from battery.
Just wondering, not sure if there is power problem from your plug?

As I know the GE72MVR should not be overheat to drop the GPU/CPU clock, so seems like 3 possibility,
1 is the backend program stole your CPU/GPU performance. 
2 is the adapter did not apply enough power. 
3 is the GPU switch to UMA when gaming.

Go  to the nvidia control panel.
Manage 3d settings.
Turn off threaded optimizations
Change: power management mode from optimal, to Prefer maximum performance.

The optimal power management stops drawing frames when it thinks it does not have to and downclocks the gpu,.  I think its bugged. I was having a similar issue.
If that does the trick then set global power management mode to adaptive.
And per game that has the issue change it to Prefer maximum performance.  Otherwise if on global Prefer maximum performance all the time outside of games your laptop will run hot.
