RX 6800 xt low power consumption in games

Just got my 6800 xt and my experience of testing games, it seems that when I'm in games, the wattage is unusually low. I swapped it out for my old 2080, and the wattage was what you'd expect it to be. In Battlefield V, on all low settings, I get around 90 fps, which infuriates me. On the rare occasion, the fps will come up to what it should be, about 140 fps on medium settings, but when I switch to all low settings it starts to fail and fps decreases. I've tried many things but nothing seems to work. I've seen other posts of people with 6800 xt's and a common problem they suggest is drivers, but there are still so many other things it could be. help.

Your pushing the workload onto the cpu, run the game on high settings (read some graphics performance tweak guides).

That is a bit confusing to me. Wouldn't it run better on low settings?

Nope, not the way these cards work and depends on the game engine graphics rendering and whether it is cpu or gpu favoured.

If your using low res/low settings you could try increasing the minimum clock frequency ( to 100Mhz below your cards max) in gpu tuning section (may or not help depending on game).

By tuning section do you mean the bios or a OC software?

Just buy AMD to lower power consumption.  Nvidia burn power like 70s muscle cars burn gas.

That's fantastic, however, doesn't get closer to a solution. Although I understand your point.

I am assuming the latest driver is borked.  No matter the settings in game (low or ultra) I get **bleep**ty FPS in DayZ in towns with low GPU utilization.

Ryzen 7 5800X3D liquid cooled, Radeon RX 6800XT liquid cooled, Crosshair VIII Dark Hero, Dominator Platinum 64GB DDR4-4000, Force MP600 Pro XT 2TB, Force MP600 2TB, UltraGear 38GN950-B

I'm having the same issues. Most likely drivers, yes.

That's wired, I have Gigabyte Aorus Radeon RX 6800 XT  and my PSU is the Asus Thor 850 (I mean 850 real) and I don’t have any problems with games so far. I like play games in 4K and the graphics are awesome!!
