Games run faster on higher settings

I’m pretty new to PC gaming and for over a year my pc had suddenly become extremely slow in games with the games running on the lowest possible setting. Today when running a few benchmarks I noticed that my computer ran better in higher, more-demanding settings. It went from 17 FPS on lowest settings to 100+ with the medium settings. Can anyone explain why this is?

 

Edit: I don’t have a GPU and run off of my intel CPUs integrated graphics

That's pretty weird.

If you do want to get a cheap upgrade from the integrated graphics, I would suggest a GT 1030 if you don't have much money and a RX 570 if you can afford more.

Main PC:  MacBook Air (M1, 2020), 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage; running macOS, but waiting for Linux to be ported to the M1

it isn't fully. it might be bottlenecked, and with upping the settings it might just load emough to the non-bottlenecking part

Power profiles is one possibility. Not enough load to push one part or another out of the default low power state.
