    I have the intel hd 4400. it used to score 4800 in graphics on cloudgate. now it scores 5990. thats going from 21fps to 29fps. pretty big jump eh. heres how to do it.

    power limit throttling causes gpu to run at a much lower clock rate and the cpu will run at half speed while gaming on hd graphics.

    so lets get rid of power limit throttling.

    1) open the battery setting in the lower right hand corner of windows 10. click battery settings
    2) click on power and sleep settings, then click on additional power settings
    3) click on the power setting like balanced that your using.
    4) click change advanced power settings
    5) click on processor power management
    6) change maximum and minimum states to a value like say 65 or 70 try to keep it below 85
    7) enjoy 25 percent more gpu power.


    This is not a troll thread where the trick does not work...this works and iv'e tested it on 3 of my laptops. but as a side note....there might be some instances where this does nothing but slow down cpu....the idea of this trick is to underclock the cpu to allow for more power to the gpu

    it's not huge, but when your getting 22-23 fps getting the extra 4 fps to make it playable is pretty big considering all other graphics tweaks for intergrated graphics net a loss or during good times 1 fps.

    https://ibb.co/cMHu9p at 100 percent performance aka full clocks
    https://ibb.co/kVUD29 at 75 percent clocks
    https://ibb.co/jau2vU at 50 percent clocks core parking set to 50percent


    round of applause because after extensive google searching to see if others do this. Closest was some guy randomly saying setting cpu to 99 percent and disabling turbo boost...he was on the right track, but all clock speeds require different amounts of power


    edit 14 percent bump...

    now ill post back here to show you guys overclocked values

    overclocking of course caused throttling and hence lower scores....so avoid youtubers that claim massive gains with intergrated overclocking

    I would rather undervolt the cpu and gpu in XTU. My i5 4210U use the same HD 4400 iGPU as yours, and I can pretty much keep both the CPU and iGPU at max load&clockspeed, the total package power is still under 25W

    undervolting does nothing on all 3 of my laptops

    i tried your method several times, on all three laptops.

    https://ibb.co/dUXHvU

    powerlimit throttles 30 seconds in.

    the idea of my thread is to show you how to avoid power limit throttling. not create it.

    No power limit throttling, iGPU locked at 1ghz, CPU can still reach max turbo with ease
    I think my i5 4210U can freely ran at 25W TDP, while whichever CPU you're using cannot due to bios contrains

    lol sorry for laughing bro but your gpu is throttling. 998mhz should be at 1100

    care to run some benchmarks, I wonder how much faster my system really is with this simple but effective tweak.
