Apologies for making another thread on this topic I’ve just narrowed down the problem and was hoping to get a helpful response if I’m more specific.
My CPU has a base frequency of 1500MHz and generally runs at 2100MHz, I can see this by running:
watch -n 1 “grep ‘cpu MHz’ /proc/cpuinfo”
My GPU generally runs at 200MHz, I assume this is when it’s not being used, I can see this by running:
watch -n 1 cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/amdgpu_pm_info
And looking at the portion that says “GFX Clocks and Power: 200 MHz (SCLK)”
As soon as my GPU is used (by running a video or a game etc.) it’s clock speed goes up and my CPU clock speed plummets to 798MHz. It stays down even when I attempt to do a CPU intensive task (viewing a web page, opening an application.)
This happens every time and all my temperatures are low (under 60 degrees Celsius), viewed by running:
This seems to be very common.
I’ve tried everything I’ve read online with no effect. Can anyone help?
