When playing games for 20 minutes and more its starting to get power limit throttled. Sometimes current limit throttled. This happened from past month. I am using a  under volt of -0.125 v from the beginning of this usage by testing benchmarks and so. And this charging cable was patched (i don't know whether the problem is this or not). Reinstalled the OS, re pasted, under volt don't know what to else. sometimes current limit throttling appears. very rarely thermal throttles. What must be the problem.

You can try undervolting more or increasing the power limit (second is risky)


@BlueScope819 so I can see your post

Power and current limits are not a problem, but rather opportunistic, allowing the CPU to reach its maximum potential for the platform.

I get power and current limit throttling is good. But this happens suddenly out of no where. Previously I was able to run most of the game whithout any problem. Why now.

Previously every games works fine. Very few times thermal throttling. But not power and current limit throttling. Why suddenly it came

I get it. I know throttling is not to bypass the threshold. But my main point is why suddenly I'm getting throtling. Previously I didn't got any throttling when using the same tasks but why now.

While throttling fps drops to 20 and gets back after ~20 seconds.
