I've been trying to play an old game (10 years old) and so it relies on single core to run well, barely even uses GPU. Others are getting 140 fps average while I'm lucky to hit 60. I ran a bench test and the results were seriously underwhelming which explains a lot.



My core speed seems to be slow too:



Laptop is Dell XPS 15 9560, Game is WarRock - average temp is 70°C.

Any idea why this is happening and how to fix it? Thanks.
