Question Laptop randomly fast or slow

I have a laptop with a fresh install of windows 10 running on an nvme 500GB WD SSD. It has 8GB of RAM and an AMD Ryzen 5 2500U. So it should run decently well for casual use.
Here's the problem: upon booting up it seems the laptop randomly "chooses" whether to run slowly or normally. It will either be quick and responsive as it should be, or alternatively run very slowly.
In the case of the latter everything is slow (for example task manager takes multiple seconds to load and switch tabs) and games are very laggy. If you then just restart, the laptop "chooses" the fast mode again and all is well.
Since it's almost instantly recognisable which mode the laptop has chosen upon boot this is really just an inconvenience as a quick restart fixes the problem. However, I would like to get to the bottom of this.
Thanks in advance
