IMX6 AR8031 RGMII signal changes

On my custom hardware board (design based on sabresd)using PHY as AR8031, 1Gbps rate instability (forced 100M normal), observing RGMII waveform is very bad.Wave-RGMII-RXD2@1000M

 Signal setup time exceeded 4.3ns in 1Gbps mode, exceeding the design requirements of RGMII.


But once in the OS system, the accompanying PC network is forced to 1 Gbps, at this time the Gigabit network can work properly (ping 65500), at this time the RGMII setup time is less than 2 ns


Question: why does RGMII's signal establishment time change? Is it related to software? I checked IOMUXC_SW_MUX_CTL_PAD_RGMIIxx and did not change before and after entering the system.

Or hardware? Where is it possible?

Thank you
