Okay, so I've been trying to find out why this is happening for about a week, my machine is a Thinkpad P53 workstation, with a 6-core 12-thread i7-9850H and a Quadro RTX3000 GPU. I know this sub is mainly geared toward desktops, but I didn't know where else to ask, as I believe if anyone would have great troubleshooting skills in this topic, it will be you guys.submitted by TheMacallanCode to pcmasterrace [link] [comments]
So, I've had this machine for almost a year now, no issues until about a week ago. I have 64GB of RAM and 2TB of nvme SSD storage as well, so I doubt there's an issue there. I started playing a pretty non demanding game, Monster Hunter World, and purposefully set it to 1080p and medium settings, whereas I can run it at 4k 60fps no problem with high settings.
The issue happens sometimes after 5 minutes of playing, and sometimes after 30 minutes of playing, it's pretty random, but what will happen is that fps will drop from a solid 60fps to a stuttery 15-20 fps, the important aspect of this is that the exact moment it happens, the GPU usage jumps from around 50% to a full 100% and stays there, not sure what's happening. I know that "100% GPU usage is good" but this case is different. The machine is powerful enough, as I'm pulling 60fps with the highest settings with 50-60% usage, but it only jumps to 100 the exact moment the performance drop occurs.
I downloaded MSI Afterburner and RivaTuner to see it in action and got this screenshot:
Temps are fine, they rarely go above 80-85C ever, as I've repasted the machine.
I took this a few secs after the performance drop, I notice that there's a temp and power throttle, the power throttle is usually there most of the time, and doesn't exactly affect performance, however the temperature throttling is what I find puzzling, as you can see the temps are fine, and stay there pretty much with every game, since it started happening about a week back, I decided to repaste the machine, and even though it helped keep temps much lower than before, it still didn't solve the issue.
After reading several threads here, I couldn't find any which were analogous to "High GPU usage, FPS bad", but I did read about several people that found out they had a bitcoin miner malware in their machine which spiked GPU usage. I decided to completely reinstall Windows in order to get rid of that probability, I made a bootable usb drive with the Windows Install tool and completely wiped all of the partitions before reinstall. The issue remained, so I could count out bitcoin malware, or Lenovo drivers, since the clean install came without any Lenovo bloatware, and also driver issues, so I just upgraded all my drivers back to the newest ones, now here I am, desperate to find out why this is happening, begging for help in pcmasterrace.
Is there any other benchmarks/tests I can run to diagnose the issue? I bought 3dMark, PCMark, and VRMark to benchmark my machine, and ran the time spy benchmark without issues, but only a couple of times, maybe not enough to have it show up.
Lastly, I have the machine plugged in, and on 'Best Performance' mode, which according to the machine, should provide the best cooling instead of caring about being quiet.
I'll also add, that the issues go away after a machine reboot, and sometimes when changing the performance slider from 'Best Performance' to something else and then back. At this point I think it might be driver or BIOS version related, so perhaps waiting might be the key.
echo Hello World
sudo apt-get -y install openssh-server
sudo service openssh-server start
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y upgradeWe are going to need to install some useful tools. Git-core is how we will clone and download BFGMiner from GitHub and Screen allows multiple command line instances and means if we exit out of ssh session or quit Terminal on Ubuntu, BFGMiner will continue to run.
sudo apt-get install git-core screenWe also need to download some other tools/dependencies to ensure that BFGMiner will compile successfully.
sudo apt-get -y install build-essential autoconf automake libtool pkg-config libcurl4-gnutls-dev libjansson-dev uthash-dev libncursesw5-dev libudev-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev libevent-dev libmicrohttpd-dev libc-binOk now change into your home directory.
cd ~And clone BFGMiner by Darkwinde.
cd bfgminerThe following steps may take a while.
sudo ./autogen.shYou will need to make the configure script execuitable.
sudo chmod +x ./configureNow configure bfgminer
sudo ./configure CFLAGS="-O3" --enable-scryptNow lets make!
sudo makeInstall BFGMiner
sudo make installOne more thing...
lsusbIts output should look similar to this (no need to type this in):
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 10c4:ea60 Cygnal Integrated Products, Inc. CP210x UART Bridge / myAVR mySmartUSB lightYep there it is our ASIC listed as device 005. There is no need to install any drivers, unlike in windows, as they come in the kernel.
screen -S minerNow you can run the commands below.
sudo bfgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://URL:PORT -u USERNAME -p PASSWORD --zeus-cc CHIPCOUNT --zeus-clk 328 -S zeus:/dev/ttyUSB0Where:
ctrl + a + dTo come back to the BFGMiner screen simply run:
screen -r minerYou're done!!
/home/USERNAME/bfgminer.confSubstitute USERNAME for your user. On a standard RPI install its pi. On ubuntu it's what you set during the instillation.
sudo nano /etc/rc.localDepending on your system this file may already contain some commands. Be careful not to delete them.
sudo -u USERNAME screen -d -m sudo bfgminer --config /home/USERNAME/bfgminer.confWhere USERNAME = your username
sudo rebootOnce rebooted and logged in, show all running screen sessions:
screen -lsReattach to the session. You only need to use the numbers before the first dot.
screen -r 2480Verify everything worked as expected. Then ctrl + a + d to exit.
Hello, recently I got my hands on two Spondoolies SP30 miners and was looking to connect them to wifi, there's a wifi option in the settings, but I haven't been able to find any wifi signals with a few wifi usb dongles. So if anyone knows how to help or where I can find the newest firmware I would really appreciate it.
