So my mother finally has a decent laptop, but there is one thing that bugs me.
Laptop in question: Acer Aspire V5-552-0578G1Taii
The processor is said and advertised to be 2.5 GHz and turbo to 3.5GHz.
The thing is, it never actually go to even 2.5 GHz when gaming, it down clocks to 1.6Ghz or so~
This way, games really run like crap because the processor doesn't go up like it should.
And when it is doing Facebook and stuff it goes to 3.2GHz :S
When i disable a core (through msconfig) it stays at a good 2.5 GHz, like it should, but then it isn't a quad-core and the power saving options are disabled...
The temps are fine and it maxes out at 71c and the APU videocard is even less than that and maxes out at 58c.
Maybe it is worth mentioning this is done on Windows 8.1 and for some stupid reason the drive is GPT so i can't install a new windows 7 on it unless i delete the old one and completely format the drive >.>
Any idea how this can be fixed? I would gladly disable all this "power saving" crap and just let it run on 2,5ghz as a quadcore, period, but of course i don't have any access to that in the bios being a laptop and all.
A third party program would be really helpful if it can do what i want. Radeon pro doesn't work, i already tried that, so anything other than that would be great.
