Nvidia throttling - Slowdown

For some Nvidia GPUs, you will see this error displayed as:

minerstat - Nvidia GPU Throttle

Nvidia throttling slowdown can happen:

  • when temperature is too high,
  • when external power brake assertion is being triggered,
  • when power consumption is too high,
  • and sometimes during core clock changes.

When this event is triggered the core clocks will be reduced.

Thermal throttling can be solved by:

  • Increasing the speed of your fans to cool down the GPUs even more;
  • Reducing your overclocking settings and making them less intense;
  • Improving your cooling and ventilation system of the rig.

Keep in mind that not all GPUs are affected by this.
