Build: FX506 - i5-11400H - 16GB RAM - RTX3050i
Since the very first moment with this laptop (27.07.2022) I experience the issue that when I update the GPU driver, it caps the GPU clock at 210MHz.
Only solution is to delete the driver from Device Manager and let Windows update it automatically.
In that case it updates to 512.78 version.
In some cases that is not compatible with latest games/softwares and that is why it is really frustrating.
It is now version 526.98 but issue still not fixed.
Tried both on Win11 x64 and Win10 x64. Issue is the same.
I am really looking forward for solution for this issue as this is a gaming laptop from 2021 which MUST have latest driver support.

Thank you in advance.
1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

I literally tried EVERYTHING for months... Nothing helped ... Than I had enough and contacted the local (Hungary) ASUS service through ASUS support. They fixed it by replacing motherboard. Everything is working perfectly now.
