AMD a8 has weird clocking problems

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

hi, i have been using my HP Beats Special Edition 15-p030nr for a daily driver for school and gaming.


the CPU's base frequency is 1.7 GHz and turbos to 2.4 GHz (100 MHz x 24) . i mainly play mincraft on it and when i do the cpu muliplier drops to 15 and stays there even after i close it.


i was wondering if there is any way to control the clock (ive already tried AOD and Throttle Stop) or just keep it still

any help is appreciated.

@kelton_henry349 I must let you know that the CPU Throttling is system managed and there are no options to make the other work manually,

it would automatically enable when the system needs it.


If its dropping while playing a specific game, you may want to check with the manufacturer of the game for support.


I hope you understand,
