Anyone Could Explain GPU Voltage Limit?

    I have a RTX 2080 laptop and on some games I saw the GPU hitting voltage limit long before power limit (only around 110w on 150w gpu, and core only load around 60%). Is this normal?
    What I don't understand is, the gpu need a certain voltage to hold a specific clock at a given load, right? But when my GPU hit voltage limit, neither the clock nor the load is that high. So why the graphic card still require so much voltage?
    I do notice it happen mostly in MMO with tons of characters on screen, or when I quickly move the camera. So I guess it is somewhat related to draw moving objects?

    VREL is normal, it just means the card has hit its highest boost clock for that particular voltage.
