    Question [NOOB Question] Why is GPU undervolting more complicated than CPU?

    I already asked this question on r/undervolt subreddit and LTT Forum. But I haven't got any proper answer. I know what undervolting is and the other basic stuff. I undervolted my CPU with Intel XTU. It was straightforward (just setting the voltage offset). I wanted to do the same with my GPU...

    Question I have a laptop with i7 8550U and am dissapointed with it's performance in games. Is there a way to increase it's performance?

    Hello, I came here to inquire whether there is anything I could do to increase the performance of my CPU in games such as LOL, rocket league or Apex. I'm a complete noob when it comes to overclocking as I never had a CPU that could do that. My current CPU is also not a "K", however I'm fed up...

    I think I am hitting temperatures on the higher side while gaming. But it comes in a weird pattern, I use MSI afterburner to check the temperatures.

    [SOLVED] I7-8700 (non k) + Z370-F Gaming | 1.5 Volts + 75°C | How to lower Voltage/Temp Spikes? | ML240R Cooler

    I'm running an Z370-F Gaming (BIOS: 2401) and i7-8700 (non k) with temps/volts spiking to 75°C/1.5v under load. Cooler is liquid ML240R, as per title. Seems like a high spike in volts, if nothing else. The ambient temps in all cases was ~22°C, although I fear in summer @ 40°C ambient, it will...

    [SOLVED] Cannot undervolt i7-9750h after BIOS update [Dell G7 7590] [1.11.1->1.12.0]

    Before updating my bios to 1.12.0 from 1.11.1 I could change the voltage offset for both CPU and Cache , which was -0.125 Volts for both using Intel XTU and later ThrottleStop(8.71). But surprisingly after Update CPU seems to just ignore the offset and the settings in XTU are greyed out. I tried...
