DDU is not needed at all, and often breaks more than it fixes
That's not my experience! I need it or I get bad issues. Also, Nvidia drivers that are installed by Windows Update, IIRC, are known for the "Nvidia control panel access-denied" bug.

It's also a must for AMD systems!

I always use this and no issues:

When not needed, but I always do a system restart after GPU driver installation, just used to that..

One thing to consider, before sending it back though - you did write you use Windows 11? I hope I'm not too late, but Windows 10 might be more suitable for your needs because it's mature now (didn't think I'd be saying this) but Windows 11 might just be the source of your trouble; it's new and has its release problems.
Try testing it with Win10 first - that's what you can do yourself, @sne4k0 .

Thanks for the last minute note! I started having issues while using Windows 10, and when I wiped the PC I installed Windows 11 to see if it would make any difference. I was still pulling the same weird numbers.

Cheers!

Here is the GPU-Z and HWinfo side by side, while in-game. Let me know if you were wanting to look at a different data point that I didn't post in there.

I currently don't (or didn't) have any antivirus installed as I wiped the hard drive when I first started noticing issues with the GPU performance. I'm only using Window's Firewall. I also tested the performance with public and private network settings. No change. I did install malwarebytes and scanned twice, once while a game was running. No detections.

I am also using the newest Nvidia Hotfix Driver.

Clearly I'm no expert, but I think we've ruled just about everything other than a hardware issue.


This was the main question I was hoping we could get answered.

I'm just going to start packing up the rig to send back for warranty.

Thanks for your help everyone!
All thats showing is the GPU is using 200W of load
98% GPU load, 200W with GPU at 390MHz?

That just screams GPU mining.

Possibly wrong VBIOS.

Yeah because once you break your OS with it, you need it from then on.

I hot swap GPU's through my PC's from various generations of AMD and nvidia hardware problem free, and also have zero issues with windows update force installing drivers
It's almost like certain tools break these things, and then keep being required to un-break what they broke...

While I don't disagree with that completely, there aren't any other indicators that's happening. Especially with a fresh Windows install and a bunch of scans of the bios, in game and outside. Not to mention, I don't download weird programs, mods or add-ons, or visit suspect websites (including porn, if that needs to be said). Something is mechanically wrong in the PC and it's probably the GPU. Either way, we'll see what gets replaced when it comes back from warranty!

Its symptoms of something very wrong
It's just that normally any kind of GPU fault results in low wattage consumption, where that's not happening

FPS caps, CPU too slow, thermal throttling etc - they'd all end up with the wattage down low


Either its got a unique one of a kind fault (which can happen, but ofc its rare) or something snuck on there doing what it shouldnt


17/11 edit:
Damn, Nvidia have released another set of drivers fixing more issues with GPU usage readings and performance issues in windows 11 (some can relate to 10, depending on what update you're on)
Be damned annoying if this was your issue


One workaround is to disable HAGS in windows


This time it's 526.98

with the game ready driver here
GeForce Game Ready Driver | 526.98 | Windows 11 | NVIDIA


and the studio driver here
(Supposedly more stable, slower updates)
NVIDIA Studio Driver | 526.98 | Windows 11


  • Desktop Window Manager (dwm.exe) service may report significantly higher GPU usage on certain PC configurations [3830387/3739997]

Basically, that COULD be making the driver report really wrong stats, combined with a bug from a few drivers ago that got GPU's stuck in low-3D clocks

FINAL UPDATE!

Good Day!

Again, thank you to tall that chimed in on this thread.

I initiated a warranty repair through ABS. They paid for the shipping. As I stated in the beginning of this thread, my GPU would run pretty well for about 15 minutes after a restart and then start having the low FPS, low MHz, weird power issues. ABS tested the GPU, decided it was fine and sent it right back without repairing/replacing anything. Obviously, I was rather disappointed when the same issues kept occurring. I re-contacted ABS and they had me ship it back AGAIN. This time, they requested that I send a note with the PC to the repair department, and I had the customer relations specialist forward them all the data logs I had from GPUz and ASUS GT3.

Just got the PC back yesterday, and they finally put a new GPU in. I went from having a Megabyte GeForce RTX 3060 TI OC to a Megabyte GeForce RTX 3060 TI Eagle. The slightest of downgrades. While I am very happy to have my issues be resolved correctly, it did take months and to get a slightly worse GPU is a bit of a bummer. I shan't be doing business with ABS again.

Cheers!

nothing to worry about, you can prolly clock back up to your OG card. 30mhz ? pfft.

I don't think the "downgrade" is worth thinking about. The 30MHz difference amounts to pretty much nothing. Literally, it probably didn't manage to make a 1fps difference :p
