  • new 6900 xt, memory staying at 1000mhz

    i originally posted this in the wrong category. should be better here.

    so i noticed really high idle temps and power usage with my 6900 xt i just got. digging around i noticed that the memory frequency is being stuck at 1000mhz. Code:

    [[email protected]: ~]$ sudo cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_dpm_mclk [sudo] password for orlfman: 0: 96Mhz 1: 456Mhz 2: 673Mhz 3: 1000Mhz * [[email protected]: ~]$
    i'm not sure if this is normal considering it is showing four power states for memory. anyone else with a 6900 xt or even a 6800 xt notice this behavior? I have the following: Code:

    Kernel: 5.10.11-arch1-1 Firmware: 20201218.646f159-1 Mesa: 20.3.4
    i also have amdgpu added to /etc/mkinitcpio.conf for early KMS. at first i figured it might be my monitor, as i have a 165hz 1440p ips screen. but changing refresh rate down to 60hz doesn't change the memory clock. i'm just use to my nvidia card memory downclocking.
