HP NOTEBOOK 8TH GEN CPU THROTTLING.

HAVE YOU GOT A HP 8TH GEN INTEL CPU THATS THROTTLING, ARE YOU AN OWNER OF AN ELLITEBOOK THAT CANT UNDERSTAND WHY ITS HAPPENING?

I have asked these questions to HP technical and they have said theres no issues but other owners of 1030, 1040 envy and spector owners are reporting all over the web their 8250u, 8350u, 855ou, 8265u, 8565u and others are CPU throttling for little or no good reasons.

I am an experinced overclocker so I see things most would not and these chips are normally really good at undervolting but not in an HP unit?

HP models of 2 years ago had none of these problems that I am aware of?

If you have had the same issues after testing in geekbench 4 or 5 or passmark 10 please email me HERE?

With model number and CPU…

Below is the best result I got on novabench score trying everything to stop the trottling on this G4.

Novabench Score

This is the best score with it in Defalt seetings best performace showing it requires a bios update to stop the throttling if carried out this would easily reach 1000 points on the cpu my best has been 911 which is 111 above the 8265u average score its excellent but boy it could be a world beater if allowed!

 

Novabench Score

Hi everyone, anyone reading this post then I wish to share this information with you all, I spent the entire day yesterday testing this laptop and discovered someting very strange.

I knew it was CPU throttling even task manager confirms this but could not for the life of me figure it out so first I removed it in windows 10, that never worked I then changed the registry value, that never worked either.

Next step undervolting yes it reduced heat at -100mv and core the same value but the CPU still thottled never seen anything like it so was forced to put everything back to default and yes if you do that results are very good aginst some laptops novabench being the best giving this notebook a score of 910 which is 110 points above cpu average but is still 25% off the best in class with same componets.

So my only walkaway from this testing is this G4 requires a bios update to stop the 15% CPU loss of power, yes its not a powerhouse notebook but whats the point of building in thunderbolt 3 4 lanes for an external video card if the CPU can easily outrun a 10th gen CPU would make this G4 unbeatable at $2000 how should we expect any less and the funny thing is thermals are excellent so theres no need to build in this throttling unless HP knows something differently?
