I am confused with GTX1070's Max Memory.
According to my screenshot below from nvidia-settings:
The above is when there are no offsets applied to either GPU or Memory clocks ( e.g. stock standard values ).
If I apply a memory offset of +450 MHz, the "Memory Transfer Rate" at the Performance level 2 goes up to 8054 MHz, so does the "Memory Transfer Rate" at the PowerMizer Information section.
However, when I run nvidia-smi:
$ nvidia-smi --format=csv --query-gpu=clocks.current.memory
... it shows my memory is only at 4032 MHz.
Thus, my questions are:
- Why is nvidia-smi only showing 4032 MHz ? Which tool is showing the correct answer ? nvidia-smi or nvidia-settings ( via X )
- Has anyone been able to set the performance level to '3' ( highest performance ) ? Even if I select "Max Performance" instead of "Auto / Adaptive ", it goes to level '3' .. but goes back to level '2' after a few seconds. When I start mining, it still stays at level '2'.
- Has anyone been able to set memory clock to 8008 MHz, which appears to be the maximum allowed ?
- Lastly, I read a lot of sites which states that P0 is the highest performance, but the nvidia-settings output is showing the other way around. Which one is it ?
