    whenever I try to change the power management mode in the NCP it always seems to default back to prefer maximum performance.

    That's weird. I usually have it default to Optimal and have to manually set it to Prefer Maximum. Lucky you.

    Do you think perhaps some ASUS software is overriding the default NVCP power management setting?

    If your screen supports GSYNC then dGPU is set to max performance.

    Nah, G-Sync doesn't do that. Still defaults to Optimal Power for me on Nvidia reference drivers. My guess is the OP uses modded or OEM drivers with some of the default settings changed.

    I think Asus modified some parameter(s) to suit their requirements.

    before i connected it to download some drivers it was set to optimal as the default but now it isn't.

    I am using stock drivers from nvidia.

    Have you tried nvidia inspector and tried to change the power profile?
    many people are complaining 436.15 has lower performance in BF5 with less FPS.
