[Solved] 2016 Macbook Pro 15 RP455 w/ akitio node pro and rx580: CPU keeps dropping to lowest frequency state
The eGPU works great. I'm even able to accelerate the internal screen. However, the CPU keeps putting its self into some kind of super lower power state. Runs at .78ghz.
Putting it to sleep and waking it back up fixes it for a few minutes.
uninstalled Mac fan control and went back to the native fan curve. Seems to have fixed it.
How long have you had the 2016 15" MBP? I was going to say check the thermal paste if you're comfortable opening it up. Mine is due for internal cleaning soon.
I am from China and my English is not very good. Please forgive me

How do you solve this problem？
This may be a problem with the SMC. My first thing to try would be resetting the SMC according to these instructions: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201295
Thanks for your reply
I reset the SMC according to your instructions, but the situation is the same as before when I was playing gtaV. The CPU frequency will drop to 0.78ghz, and the game frame number will drop to 10fps. I am very distressed
