Question about AMD 7000 GPUs and old games using far too much power

If I run something like ES: IV Oblivion on my system my 3060 sips power compared to my 7900XT and I was wondering if there are any plans to try and fix this? I would have thought the much more powerful 7900 cards would use less power but that is seemingly not the case. From what I can gather through HWiNFO64 the GPU is maintaining the max frequency on the VRAM where I highly doubt it needs to (running the game at 1440p-60fps locked through RivaTuner).


It happens in all "easy" to run games  from 15+ years ago, are there any plans to address this in a future driver update or are the 7000 cards stuck just maxing out VRAM frequency when playing any game?
