    I have a problem with my Spectre:

    After I got it, two days later the PC kept stuck at 0.8Ghz and 3xxMhz for the CPU / Vega GPU.
    The only thing which helped was to reboot the PC and then it was ok for about 10minutes.

    To be sure it's not some crap or bloatware running in background I made a clean install of windows and only installed all necessary drivers. For about a half week all went great until yesterday, where all of sudden the problem came back again.

    Does anyone has the same problem or has any idea how I could fix it?

    Hey man -- can you please (pretty please) post your settings for ThrottleStop and please show your voltage output in HWinfo?

    Thanks!

    Sorry, I can't. I don't have the laptop anymore. I didn't do anything fancy with Throttlestop. I just followed the first part of this guide.

    OK thanks -- why did you get rid of it?

    It was running too hot, which I may have eventually been able to control to an extent, but it was mainly too big/heavy for the way I used it. It is a beautiful laptop with a great display though and I kind of miss it.

    Well I've got it so it stays under 100 C now and now stops throttling (with AC power) -- only problem left to solve is how to get it to stop shuttering in games while I'm on battery. Something is dropping the gpu / power down on battery just haven't found what it is yet....

    I just got mine finally and was pleased to see a Samsung PM961 inside instead of the slower Toshiba SSD.

    However, I noticed that the system seems to occasionally freeze up for a few seconds at time. This can happen several times a minute so it is really annoying. I tried doing all updates including the new Vega drivers but it still occurs. Has anyone had this problem?

    I've read online about this problem for older spectres but I'm having personally having this issue -- only problem I'm having is some kind of throttling / performance dips while on battery in games vs on power despite having power management set to performance everywhere I can see to do it.

    For those who ordered the Spectre with the 8705G did HP ship on the estimated date? I ordered mine about a week ago and I still have about 5 days to go before it ships but I'm seeing that HP often lists ship dates slip by weeks.

    Edit: And on the note of all these overheating problems, does HP allow repasting under warranty? It seems likely they're just using some garbage TIM seeing as how some people have big problems with heat while others aren't.

    Mine was shipped 3 days later than the specified ship date due to "extremely high demand". It was shipped directly from China but only took less than a week to get here.
