HWinfo64 claiming my GPU has hit power limit.


New Member
Hi all,

I'm running the latest version of HWinfo64 and my GPU is an MSI gaming trio RTX 3070.

After a gaming session, HWinfo often reports that the performance limit - power has been hit ("performance limit - power - YES") despite the 'Total GPU power (% of TDP) only reaching 70%. Moreover, the TDP of the 3070 is listed as 220W. During the same example session above, the GPU power was listed as 165.746W as the maximum.

Can anyone shed some light on this? I'm not sure why the power limit is reported as being met when it appears the other data provided by HWinfo64 claimed otherwise.

Many thanks!
