I've faced with issue when sometimes after leaving sleep mode the iGPU is going into 200mhz instead normal 750mhz. The UI works slow, especially while you're switching desktops, scrolling in WebStorm and so on.

Here is some thermal data:

$ sudo thermal levels
cpu: 0
gpu: 0
io: 0

And some powermetrics:

$ sudo powermetrics -s gpu_power
Machine model: MacBookPro11,4
SMC version: 2.29f24
EFI version: 187.0.0
OS version: 18D109
Boot arguments:
Boot time: Mon Feb 11 13:59:37 2019

GPU 0 DPB on 0.00%
GPU 0 GT2 on 0.00%
GPU 0 GT3 on 100.00%

And here we go: 200MHz: 1.78%

And let me show iStat Menus output:

And only reboot is helpful. After reboot iGPU returns to 750mhz and UI works great. Is it the Apple's bug? Someone faced with the same issue? It's only about MacBook Pro 15" 2015 !! I have this issue on both (home laptop and on my work). Looks like I've faced it only on Mojave..
