    G53SW turbo boost throttle

    Hi all,

    I have a G53SW-A1(i believe), it's about 9 months old. The processor is a 2630QM at 2.00GHz and 2.90GHz while plugged in.

    About 2-3 weeks ago, I noticed while playing COD4 that my frames went from 250 to about 120, and that when I played CS:GO it struggled to push 30 fps, during these games my turbo boost monitor showed that I was at 2.60GHz and that my gpu usage was a constant 99% and pushing to 80 degrees C (which has never happened even when gaming on my lap).

    I've done a factory reset which has helped the FPS issue, but my GHz is still throttled during gaming at 2.60 (with the rare exception where it pushes to 2.62). sometimes during boot it'll push to 2.80, but then during usage, at best it'll push to 2.62 with the gpu usage between 50-70%

    i know the turbo feature is supposed to max at 2.60GHz when all cores are being used (hwinfo64 is showing all cores at 2.60). Anyone know how to fix it so it goes back to using one core at 2.90GHz

    any help would be appreciated
