High Power Usage in Idle High VRAM clocks - RX 5600XT Driver 21.12.1 is broken

I have an issue with high power consumption on my system due to high memory speeds (1750 MHz @ 35 W), which on previous drivers wasn't a problem. Driver 21.12.1 broke clockspeeds again making my card idle warmer again. Drivers 21.11.3 are the latest which don't have this problem.

I'm clueless as what to do to normalize the situation. I heard that DP doesn't suffer from this issue, but i can't switch to display port on my setup.

My current system specs are:

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 @stock settings

Mobo: Asrock b450m-hdv r4

Ram 16 GB @3200 MHz

GPU: Saphire RX 5600 XT Pulse BE
