Your GPU is reaching its maximum thermal design point during the benchmark, so GPU-Z registers a performance cap; it physically can't extract more performance out of it because load is already at maximum within the TDP spec. There's no issue, the 2070S is functioning normally.

Benchmark Scores Faster than yours... I'd bet on it. :)
PWR means it is hitting the power limit (doesnt have much to do with thermals). What are your load temps? The image is cut off.

I cant read temps from his image... can you?

The temps are 60 and under

Means, if you want higher MHz on Core, You either :
1) Need to increase TDP/Power limit, OR
2) Decrease vGPU for given Frequncy (under Freq/Volt curve)
