Gaming Laptop not reaching rated processing speeds

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I currently have Dell G3 with an Intel I7-9750H, a GTX 1660TI, and 16 GB of RAM. I ran a cinebench run and the score was quiet low. I ran it again with control panel and a hardware info tab giving CPU temps, and saw that the processor was only running an average of 3 Ghz and was at 95 to 100 degrees Celcius. This is confusing to me seeing how my processor's max turbo frequency is 4.5 Ghz. Is it not reaching this speed because it's getting too hot, or is it some other config that I don't have set. (Also my power setting is set to high performance, Don't know if this helps)

yes, it's getting too hot and throttling, that's why you're also getting low scores.

laptops don't really perform well in stress tests, their cooling systems are designed for realistic loads, not synthetic ones. play a game and monitor temps and frequencies then. you might find out the cpu happily stays at 4GHz and 75 degrees
