I have a i5 9300h, 1660ti Laptop that has been underperforming in destiny 2 recently so I figured i would run a game that has MSI afterburner so that I could see what was going on.
In BF2 my CPU was being limited to about 13 - 11W and was running at about 1100 - 1500 Mhz. (PLUGGED IN) Which is extremely slower than the 4.0 Ghz I've seen it go up to.
I recently replaced the thermal paste on my CPU and GPU but I can' tell if that affected the performance or not since I don't use this laptop at all until recently.
If you have any ideas to help me fix this I would greatly appreciate it.
I have already put all my battery settings to high performance and have tried uninstalling any unnecessary software.
