Did you face throttling with m5000m in your dell or hp workstation?

    I thought that was what you would find. That's a great way to find out. I'm sorry I didn't fix the problem, but I'm glad that it gave you the correct and accurate answer.

    Thank you. Yes you did help me confirm my doubts on the perfcap.
    Could you please help me in modding the vBIOS to increase the power limit?
    Edit:

    I'm familiar with the maxwell bios editor and flashing. Any suggestions?

    I have always used firmware modded by someone else, so I am not experienced with what should be changed. What I would do if I were in your shoes is look at good vBIOS mods in the Maxwell BIOS Editor to see what others changed to get good results and try to emulate that.

    I have attached a modded 980M vBIOS that I had extremely great results with overclocking if you want to look at it in the Maxwell BIOS Tweaker.

    I will cross refer this bios to see if i can find any workarounds.
    Thank you.

    I use NVIDIA SMI to manually set my modded 2080 Ti power limit to 2000W. You might want to try using that command to set your GPU to the 100W power limit and see if it helps being set to a static value.

    Those that are using Windows 10 DCH drivers... I think you may find the Redmond Retards have removed NVIDIA SMI features. You'll need to use standard drivers and ditch the DCH crap. God forbid that someone might draw too much power from one of their precious tree-hugger candy-butt turdbooks.

    Tried setting the same values as yours in my power table of the vBIOS. It doesn't help pushing the 100W limit. Sadly the smi power limit command doesn't let me push it either as it says the input must be between 0-100W as I said in my other reply :(

    On a kinda related note..

    I had a couple of problems when I updated my gpu drivers last week, it locked my card to 1038Mhz Boost clock, this on a 980m, overclocking did nothing, after running an handfull of versions 425.31 is working fine, besides that I can't adjust voltage, no matter if I use Afterburner or NVIDIA Inspector, core and memory OC works fine, but voltage doesn't budge from 1.075v, and I'm running a modded vBIOS by Svet, it worked in the past, but not since my last clean install of the OS, bug, or Nvidia driver capping shenanigans ?

    At least I can move my TDP around, but it doesn't help if I can't change my voltage..

    As a last-ditch effort, you might want to try using a driver from this time last year, or older, to see if the behavior is the same or better.

    NVIDIA has done many dirty, rotten things with drivers... including, but not limited to, blocking memory and power adjustments, and overclocking.

    funny u should mention that, i noticed the same! i suspect its the OS, since I was using the same j95 driver mod before my clean install and voltage/clocks/TDP worked fine. now i cant adjust anything and im stuck at base clocks, not even boost! ugh...

    but very good info, that at least 425.31 is working for ya. ill try that one once my machine is up and running again :)

    Don't know if this is the right place, but what would I need to get a M5000M from a Zbook 17 G3 to get working in a Dell M6800, just a dell VBIOS?
    Edit: Or would I be better off with a 1060 for a similar price?
