so ive been using this laptop for a while and ive always noticed in my task manager that when my pc is idle or not exactly doing any heavy task the cpu is at its turbo clock 3.4ghz but thye moment i start a game just any game the clock speed suddenly drops to 2-1.9ghz even below the base clock which is 2.9ghz i read about this in lot of threads all of them said its due to throtling and turbo boost urns off and cpu runs in base clock. but for me its not even anywhere near the base clock it drops to 2ghz -1.98ghz why is this happeing
my specs:

CPU: intel core i7-7500u 2.9ghz base clock upto 3.5ghz turbo
GPU: 940MX 2GB
STORAGE: SSD
RAM: 16GB
