Hi, I recently received a Quadro P6000 GPU from the Nvidia University program. I am trying to use it on a PC with Ubuntu 18.04 and the nvidia-390 drivers but it seems to be very slow.
When forcing the maximum performance setting from the driver control panel, the graphics clock frequency is capped at around 300 MHz. When I try to run some CUDA code, it even drops below that to 100 MHz. Trying to force a higher freuency with nvidia-smi -ac does not have any effect. Power supply should not be an issue and temperatures are fine.
I’m not sure what’s the cause of this issue. Could it be that the clock is actually hardware-limited? Mind that this is not a commercial card, but one given away for free by the grant program for universities so it might be some card downtuned for stability reasons.
