Perhaps it can handle the lower frequency at 2D/idle clocks, but not the higher 144Hz frequency? Not a clue. I don't have a 144Hz monitor.
If you reboot, but are still on 144Hz, does it still raise the clocks?
My understanding of this was that a driver update fixed it some driver versions back. After I get off work later tonight I'll hop on the pc I still have running off of an Acer XB270HU and see the clocks after changing to 144Hz. A prior driver fixed this issue though as this was a widespread thing last year.
Bah, well I can confirm the issue on my end as well then, I haven't payed any attention to it as of late, but I guess one of the updates borked whatever fix was offered as idle temps do stay up with 144Hz enabled and drops down to 100MHz as soon as I switch to 120Hz or lower. I don't remember which driver it was that fixed it as it was several driver versions ago.
Again? They just did that a couple weeks ago... it was resolved the same day and a beta came out... another two days later it was WHQL.The most current driver that was released last week, it is advised you stay away from that one, it's been killing off GPUs like the old AMD drivers were doing.
