    GTX 1080 Ti Utilization throttling in game with "Prefer Maximum Performance" setting

    Hello,
    I just bought my ROG Strix GTX 1080 Ti OC and I'm running on NVidia driver 382.05.
    I primarily play Warframe n DX 11 mode on Windows 7 x64 and just upgraded from my GTX 480.
    I was expecting quite a large FPS jump only to see virtually identical FPS in missions.
    The only time I see huge FPS increases are during my time in my landing craft, which put a 60% load on my GPU.
    Within seconds of joining a mission my GPU load drops to under 35% and the FPS plummets.
    I expected that I could just change my nVidia global power saving settings to "prefer maximum performance" to force full time 3d clock speed like I could in the past. This setting no longer works at all.

    MSI Afterburner doesn't have the "EnablePerLevelForcing" option that Rivatuner used to have so I am stumped.
    Is anyone aware of how to force full clock speed?

    I just learned of NVidia System Management Interface.exe

    I just opened CMD and typed:
    "C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NVSMI\nvidia-smi.exe" -h
    That revealed all the help info for smi.exe's uses
    I'm just not sure yet on what controls the load based throttling.

    Edit:
    Lovely...apparently enforcing application clocks is disabled for the Strix GTX 1080 Ti OC, at least with msi.exe.
