I’ve been trying to lower my dedicated gpu’s (GTX 1050 Ti, driver 510.60.02) clock on my laptop.
It won’t let me lock the clock with
nvidia-smi -lgc nor does it let me set the power limit with
nvidia-smi -pl. Says the gpu doesn’t support it.
PowerMizerLevelAC which works but it worked “too well”. Clock maxed at around 570 MHz at full load. I have 4 performance level: 0, 1, 2, 3. I’m able to set it to level 0, 1, and 3, but not level 2. Values i tried:
0x4 only goes to level 0 (iirc 300-ish MHz ).
0x2 goes to level 1 (around 570 MHz).
0x0 goes to level 3 (boosted the clock up to around 1711 MHz). With this, my games lagged either way. Either not enough graphics “power”, or thermal throttled.
options nvidia NVreg_RegistryDwords="PowerMizerEnable=0x1; PowerMizerDefaultAC=0x3; PowerMizerLevelAC=0x1; PowerMizerLevel=0x3;"
Is there a way to set PowerMizer performance level to level 2? Or is there a way to disable clock boost?
Is there other ways to lower my dgpu clock? or at least so i have a decent performance?
