I recently bought a new lenovo ideapad L340 and i've been having a problem with it , whenever i boot a game the cpu runs at around 3.9 GHz for about 15 seconds before instantly dropping to 2.4 GHz which is base , it sits at that clock speed and does not move upwards nor downwards , its not thermal throttling I ran the XTU stress test and it sits stable at around 3.7 GHz and around 78 degrees celsius . this problem occurs when playing any game , i tried shadow of the tomb raider , neir automata , doom and batman arkham knight . could that be a problem with turbo boost ?

I5 9300h 2.4 GHz (4.2GHz boost)
8GB DDR4 2400MHz
GTX 1650



thanks in advance:)

the cpu doesn't even get a chance to get hot it just sticks at the base clock constantly no matter the load , and even if it were thermal throttling why doesn't it underclock itself further more?

nope , I'm using the balanced mode with no modification at all ,I use a mode made by lenovo called conservation mode which lets the battery charge to only 60 % to prolong the life of the battery , though I don't think this has anything to do with the problem
