Any way to turn off this stupid power-saving feature? (Ryzen 2200g)

So I've bought a 2200g and it's doing good, but has a seriously annoying feature, my problem in an example:


I'm playing Forza Horizon 3 on my 2200g APU, with unlocked framerates my fps is around 40-60, gpu clock is running at 1100mhz (sometimes drops to 1000 making the fps drop too, but not too noticable)


I figure that fix 30 fps would be better than jumping between 40-60, so I set my fps limit to 30 and boom, I can barely hold the 30 fps because this stupid power saving mode kicks in, the gpu clock is only running at 400mhz ruining the whole thing.


The same thing can happen with unlocked framerates, for example I'm playing wow with 80 fps then suddenly it goes down to 30-40 fps, and when I check the gpu clock it's 400, then it goes back to 1100 and I get my 80 fps back.


I've a gigabyte 320 mobo with newest bios, I have the newest amd chipset driver, the newest apu driver. I've tried setting the gpu clock in bios to 1100 hoping it would force it but no, it doesn't make it keep it, it still goes down to 400 when not under heavy load. I've tried ryzen master, nothing. There is no option in bios that would turn off this stupid power saving mode.



Any solution? The best one would be a way to force this stupid thing to don't go into idle mode unless I let it.
