Clevo control center 2.0 is the one causing throttling.

    The issue of the P955ER throttling was caused by the Clevo control center after all.

    Examples for the throttling :

    A 1060 throttling in a Clevo laptop(1190mhz for 1060)


    Screenshot_20180623-021152_Samsung Internet.jpg
    A 1070MQ throttling (923mhz for 1070MQ)

    It wasn't the 150w PSU or the bios.

    I want to see if I can fix that using it CCC, but... excuse me while I lel and repeat that people should not use CCC and instead settle for having to FN + 1.

    Right, CCC v2 will cause an additional GPU throttle at lower temperature.
    But not sure if it'll also do that when set to performance mode...
    (The combined load and power throttle are in the firmware).

    Yeah.

    So this isn't a bug ? It's intentional ?

    Pretty sure it has to do with Max-Q certification temps. Easier for them to do that on OS level rather than requesting a new vBIOS...

    Yes but the normal 1060 is throttling to 1050 ti performance too despite running at 65c. And once you kill the CCC 2.0, bam you're back to 1060 performance.

    The same thing happens with the 1070MQ . Kill the CCC and you will go from 923mhz to ~1300mhz.

    By the way,

    Can one install the older Clevo Control center, before v2?

    I wonder if that would work on this generation of systems.

    Here's what I'm going to do: I'll uninstall the control center and re-run the benchmarks.

    Sure, I may not be affected (based on previous results) but at this rate, it's good to confirm.

    Seriously, Clevo: Why do you suck at making decent S/W for your machines?

    CCC has been a cancer for ages. Fix it, or nuke the **** out of it.
