With all due respect, these softwares used to run better, faster and smoother on my old XPS 15 l521x, i dont think the workload is the issue. In fact, I was able to run call of duty world war 2 at 40-50fps on the 9560 with no power throttle. I've been noticing this problem only for the past few months. The power throttle happens even before the laptop gets heated
Hey, I am experiencing the same issue with my Precision 5510 (which was marketed as mobile workstation, essentially the same as XPS 9550 9560). In my case, the VRMs near the CPU overheat and cause the CPU frequency to drop to 800MHz, even when watching 4k Youtube videos, which is ridiculous.
Could you please share how you dealt with this issue?
