I have an Alienware M15 R2, i7-9750H and RTX 2060

@unclewebb - I was reading the the alienware thermal profiles from the command center app can change the PL1 so I downloaded it again and set it to performance to try that out. I then did a stress test and have undervolt down to -200mV and got a blue screen so I assume that was too low. Set it back to -190mV and ran it ok. Then I played some games, doesn't look like I am getting throttling but still getting framerate drops, multiplier was sitting around 39-40. I took these two dumps while playing.
