P50 1535M not reaching max CPU

2017-02-22, 10:17 AM


I have a P50 1535M with 32GB of ECC RAM. The maximum chip speed I see in use is 3.5GHz and 3.2GHz with all cores in use, whereas it should be able to reach 3.8 on a single core. I have used the maximum performance profile on windows 10. I have even switch to GPU only graphics which did increase the speed to 3.6. For single core performance I would expect it to reach 3.8.


I know the P50 has well thought through cooling and thermal management, however, I would like to understand why this rather fancy xeon chip is under utitlized.
