NVIDIA GeForce Driver Power Mode Settings Compared

Kingdom Come Deliverance

This game is very graphically demanding.  We have the HD Texture pack installed and are running the game at the “Ultra High” preset default at 1440p.  We are using a long manual run-through in the wilds outdoors for our run.  This game does run in DX11, compared to all the other games in this review which run in DX12 or Vulkan.

GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER

This game shows us what we experienced also in Call of Duty.  The Prefer Maximum Performance is just slightly slower due to the clock speed dropping to 1905MHz half-way through the game.  In the other two power modes, the clock speed remained at 1920MHz.

Another unexplainable result, Optimal Power edges out Adaptive and Prefer Maximum Performance.  However, only by 1 FPS, so margin of error for a manual run-through applies, and of course that kind of difference isn’t noticeable.
