New here and in need of help.
I've already scoured the net for this, but nothing works for me.
I'm using my laptop for audio production and i need it to be at maximum frequency all the time.
I've set it up for high performance, the minimum setting is at 100% but whenever it's idle it goes back to a low power state.
CPU-Z says that it's multiplier goes from 12-33x and that the buss is at 99.76mhz.
It's an i7 3610QM
When I stress test it, it only goes up to 31x multiplier but i guess that's normal for when all four cores are active, but when idling it's at 12x.
This is a problem because I use it for live audio and it seems to affect my ability to use lower latency settings on the audio interface.
In BIOS I have only a few options:
Dynamic switching or Low Power
If dynamic switching is on, I can turn turbo boost on or off, but if Low Power is on, then Turbo boost disappears.
I tried going to low power and that just keeps it at 12x, I've tried turning off turbo boost, and then it keeps it at 23x no matter what happens.
If Turbo and Dynamic are both on it fluctuates between 12x-31/33x depending on the load.
I tried ThrottleStop but it helps nothing.
Funny thing is that I remember just changing the Power options to high performance and setting the minimum to 100% and it never fell below 33x or 31x. This was months ago.
I'm at my wits end.
