My GPU downclocks itself to idle speeds, from 2100 mhz to 1600 mhz during gameplay in WOW. When this happens I take a huge FPS dump.
I have been running the game at max settings. Though it seems the problems occur a little bit less if I play with some lower settings.
This problems occur both when I play by myself, questing around and in raids, but its more likely to happend in crowded areas. So its not that the GPU is getting overloaded or something and clocks down the GPU to idle speeds. The GPU usage normally stays at 30-70% when playing wow and never goes over 75 degrees.
The CPU never goes over 50% (normally around 35-40%) in load on a single core, the other cores are around 0-20% load. And my CPU is overclocked to 4.5 ghz and stays around 40-60 degrees warm during game play.
I tried a lot of different power settings. I tried set power management mode in the Nvidia Control Panel to Maximum Performance, didnt do anything.
I tried to set the windows power plan to high performance, didnt help either.
Someone recommend me to go into the settings of the Xbox app in Windows 10 and turn of game dvr, but that didnt do anything as well.
I have also tried to change draw distance in game to a 7 and put shadow quality settings to high. Didnt fix it either.

I am running out of solutions, so if anyone has any advice I could try, it would be very appreciated.
It's starting to look like there is some problem with the new Nvidias 10-series Pascal and wow.
