Gtx 1060 6 gb stuck at 139 Mhz core clock
So a week ago my gtx 1060 (Founders Edition) started performing horribly, altough I didn't download or change any software and I never touched my hardware. It started in Overwatch where I normally would have gotten well over 100+ fps on epic settings but now I only get around 10-20 fps. I looked into GPU-Z and it says that my core clock is 139 Mhz and 4006 Mhz memory clock. Sometimes when I restart my pc the core clock gets up to 1506 Mhz but when I start a game and play for 1 minute the clock gets back down to 139 Mhz which leads to terrible fps in all my games. I already have every power setting on max performance. Please help I can't play anything :(

a week ago, a performance killing intel security update hit most 10 users.

I also have 1060 Founders Edition, (and latest Win 10 updates) -base clock speed is 1506MHz (desktop), and generally well above this during gaming. (power settings on max) 139mhz seems to be the standby/power saving mode clock. So basically your GPU is not really being used at all by the sound of it! (Even if you have it in power save mode, it should fire up when you start a game) Can only suggest that you might try removing and reseating card in the slot? Else card malfunctioning.
