In power non-sensitive case, using performance governor can help to run GPU at highest frequency by default and still be able to be thermal throttled.

Re-config kernel

Run below command on board to check if CONFIG_DEVFREQ_GOV_PERFORMANCE is set or not. If not, please set CONFIG_DEVFREQ_GOV_PERFORMANCE=y and update the kernel

 $ zcat /proc/config.gz | grep CONFIG_DEVFREQ_GOV_PERFORMANCE

Enable performance governor for GPU

Run below command on board to check all available governors for GPU

 $ cat /sys/class/devfreq/17000000.gv11b/available_governors

To enable performance governor, run below command on board as root

 # echo performance > /sys/class/devfreq/17000000.gp10b/governor

Check GPU frequency

With performance governor enabled, GPU should run at highest frequency by default, run below command on board as root to check GPU frequency

 # /home/nvidia/tegrastats

Emulate thermal throttle
