    [solved] i7-6700HQ auto downclock while in performance mode


      Dear readers,


      My laptop runs a i7-6700HQ, gtx960m, and 16Go of RAM with windows 10 installed.

      When I play videogames, (AC pluged in and in performance mode) I can run any game smoothly, but at some stage, the processor decide to go down to 0.81Ghz and get stuck in that speed for a few minutes, then go back to 3.6Ghz. This induce a huge FPS drop in my games during that time, and I go from 40-50fps to 10-5fps.

      Do you have any idea where the problem can come from? I checked the temperature while I experience the downclock and it seems good at 70°C, not more.
