Thank you for contacting the Intel community.
Please bear in mind that the Intel® XTU reads the information from your computer BIOS so this depends on your BIOS and how all the components interact with each other.
At this point, I strongly recommend contacting your computer manufacturer for better support, I would try to update the BIOS and run Windows® update to see if helps.
You should be able to get support here:

Thanks, after your hint i've found what seems like a solution:
opened the BIOS, then loaded "Optimized Defaults" (in my pc simply using f9).
That's it, no more unexpected/faulty thermal throttling even at really high temperature, the cpu even under a huge load doesn't underclock, the core frequency is always on 3,1 GHz as expected.
