Having recently purchased a new Omen 16-c0500na (5800h + 6600m) I've been doing some benchmarking and noticed that the gpu is maxing out at using 65 watts. As a result its only hitting clock speeds up to about 1900MHz and is getting a 3dmark timespy score of 7000 instead of the average 8300 for specs like this.
Given that the 6600m is designed to reach up to 100w is this intended behaviour from HP? If not does anyone know a way to raise the power limit up to 100w?
I've updated to the latest bios (F.16) and AMD software (22.6.1), set it to performance mode in the OMEN hub and tried with and without an external monitor. No effect, still peaks at 65w when running benchmarks and stressing it with Unigine Heaven. I've also tried resetting windows, and using the recommended drivers from HP but it still runs at 65w under full load.

This could be a power limitation (watt) set by HP and can be due to construction and/or thermal restrictions.
More detailed information could be provided by an HP technician if you have the possibility to contact them within the HP warranty.
