Slow P1

My Xeon processor runs at 1 GHZ. My windows power option is set to full power all the time. How can I make this machine run at 4.4 GHZ?

 

Thank you.

Re: Slow P1

What application are you running to determine that the machine runs at 1 GHz?
What application are you running to stress the CPU?
Connect the power cable?
If Connected try to disconnect it?

Re: Slow P1

I am running two chemical process simulators. These are extremely calculation intensive programs that take 15 minutes to solve. CPU utilization is 10%. I have a Xeon processor, 1 TB hard drive and 32 MB ram. My processor is running at 0.8 GHZ. I have seen the speed briefly increase to 4.2 GHZ, then fall off below 1.0 and stay there. 

 

The vantage and windows settings are both in power mode.

Re: Slow P1

PS. I updated the BIOS and I have a solid state drive. This computer is slower than my 10 year old dual core T-510.

Re: Slow P1

Let's gather some power and temperature data. Download HWINFO64 and run it when you are running the computations. Select the sensor reading and either post the core temps or paste a snapshot of the sensor screen here. It does sound like you are hitting the temperature limits on the system. Are the fans running at full? Here's a snapshot of my system which is currently running a movie on Netflix:

Re: Slow P1

The log file is attached. No thermal throttling indicated. Fan speed is low. Speed is less than 1 GHZ in the task manager. 

 

Thanks for your help.

Re: Slow P1

...two simulators running -- very intensive number crunching.

Re: Slow P1

I agree, no thermal throttling of either the GPU or the CPU. What does the system do with only only simulation running? How many threads are in use for each?

Re: Slow P1

This computer is just plain sluggish. Even opening/closing files is slow. It is sluggish with only one simulator running. Twelve threads are indicated. Attached is a screen shot of the system. 

 

Thanks.

Re: Slow P1

Could the Thunderbolt 3 docking station be slowing the computer? I unplugged  and replugged and now I am running at 4 GHZ. 

 

Thanks,
