I’ve got a RTX 2070 Super Max-Q in my working laptop using Ubuntu 22.04. The internal graphics card is disabled, so pure nvidia.
Preferred mode is adaptive, of course.
For whatever reason, the performance level is stuck at 3 (300-2100 Mhz GPU, 11002-11002 Mhz memory). Graphics clock is around 1215 Mhz while doing absolutely nothing (utilization is below 1%). This means, the fan will often be on.
How do I make it reasonable? Reasonable means:
- Why is the performance level not 0 or at least 1? Why am I not allowed to change it? How do I change it and make it stay at this setting forever?
- Why is the graphics clock not at 300 Mhz when idle? It’s the most obvious thing everyone wants - when its doing nothing, it should not produce heat / noise. Especially in a laptop. How do I change it so it works like it should?
