What wattage are you seeing, what wattage are you expecting, and what laptop are you using.

Laptop model?

 

Power throttling most likely, though if you happen to have a garbage laptop thermal throttling can be an issue but thats if you start throttling at 100c or something

 

Usually bypassable by deleting intel dptf or dynamic tuning processor participant which should allow power limit unlock via throttlestop to work assuming your laptop doesnt enfore power limits via hardware

 

@unclewebb may be able to help you

This all depends on the bios. It has a configurable TDP MAX of 28w. 

 

And that TDP is a THERMAL dissipation number, not a power consumption number. 

 

If it's boosting 4.2ghz on single core loads, then it's working as it should.

 

Also keep in mind the TDP of the CPU includes the onboard iGPU. So it's not strictly CPU TDP you're looking at.

it never passes 15.3 and my laptop also underperformes from many other laptops with the same specs also heat is not the problem it runs decently at 70 Celsius  approx

Try setting up windows in performance mode. You could check in the bios for performance and power saving settings too.

OK then wait for @unclewebb so he can walk you through using ThrottleStop.

 

You can also try QuickCpu.

Try throttlestop and see if you can yeet the power limit

 

Press turn on button, go into tpl, PL1 and 2 set to 9999 and duration silder all the way to the right, same goes for pp0 current limit, sync mmio may help

 

Then go into device manager and under system devices iirc there should be intel dptf or dynamic tuning, delete whatever driver says processor participant and leave the others alone

 

That should yeet power limit if your laptop doesnt have power limits enforced by hardware. Also disable bd prochot incase thats making the cpu throttle
