That means there's not enough load (utilization) on the GPU to drive the clocks higher, hence the clock is limited to a lower state.
Hi Martin,

The GPU has reached its power limit and hence reduced the clocks to remain within the limit.
I also have Performance Limit - Utilization permanently on Yes.
Thanks for the question Llewellynf.
I understand there's not enough load.
Thank for the answer Martin.

Is there a way to stop this 'minimum' alert but still be alerted to a 'maximum'?
I apprecaite your time and consideration, thank you.
hello I have the same thing as @ Llewellynf.
but the question is that its a bad thing or is it normal? I didn`t quit understand
