Hello Bubbleaswome, there is some additional information that I would like to get in order to find out what is causing this clock speed issue.
Would you please provide me this information?
Model number of your processor?
Model number of your motherboard?
Memory model number?
Graphics driver version installed?
Current BIOS version?
Also I would suggest running the Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool to determine if the processor has any issue:
Dell OEM 1333 DDR3
Happens on both the most current and 10.16.10
V1.6 from February 21st, this year
It passed everything in the diagnostic tool.
While I know it is operating within normal speeds, I was wondering if there was a way to take it to full boost. Many GPUs have to ability to force 3D clocks and I was wondering if that was possible. I am not hitting power or thermal limits. If that is on MSI's side I will contact them.
