Can you get more performance out of an HQ chip?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My laptop specs

CPU : i5 7300HQ

GPU : 1050 4GB

RAM : 16 GB 2400 DDR4

SSD : 256 GB Samsung 960 PRO


75 hz monitor

Lenovo Legion Y520

Temps around 60-65C for both GPU and CPU.


I was wondering if it is possible for better performance out of the CPU, the CPU struggles with maintaining a solid 75 FPS in some games with frame drops down to 30-45. The cpu is boosting to 3.1 ghz but is pinned at 100%. It can boost to 3.5 ghz single core load, is it possible for 3.5 all cores or any other way for more performance?

If the game is more of a multi threaded game the chipn obviously won't boost to it's single threaded frequency 

The only way you can get more performance ? 

I guess turning down the settings 

Updating the drivers for your GPU 

Dusting your machine off making sure there is no dust limiting the cpu from boosting 

My favorite case is the mechify c and it is the best case and if you say otherwise you're lying
