Reduced GPU performance with Throttlestop Disable Lock Turbo Power Limits
All working pretty well actually but I'm seeing a bit of a strange kind of behaviour that I wouldn't expect...
It is most evident in a benchmark for Rise of the Tomb Raider - but also happens with various 3DMark benches too; as I increase the performance of the CPU by either undervolting or disabling the tubo power limits, the performance of the GPU decreases. Anyone have any idea of the dynamic that is causing this behaviour?
The first thing I would do is run Intel XTU as a monitoring software while you benchmark with and without the modified CPU operating parameters. Do a couple of runs with different settings, and take note of whether XTU records an increase in power limit throttling or thermal throttling with your adjusted settings.
Hey, thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately I can’t install XTU as it seems Ice Lake CPUs are not on the supported list so it flatly refuses to install.
I've monitored Throttlestop though and as you’d expect with a reduced vcore and no power limit the CPU throttles less ( temp only while maintaining much higher clocks)and is performing faster as per score results. Though, GPU is then scoring less.
