I'm pretty sure you can't use it to increase the base clock speed. It should clock up though, how far depends on cooling.

Welcome........... Because it's a 6W CPU, it "bursts" to 2.5Ghz apparently so that may well be the best you are going to get, maybe if you list your full system specs it may help.

That's how they work. Low base frequency and dynamic burst clocks for when you do things. It's the same as Intels m CPUs, amd afaik you couldn't change the base frequency on those. And I assume it's a kind of tablet? In which case you really want it to use as little power as possible, meaning low base frequency. Are you after undervolting? XTU, as linked, should do that.

what would be the best settings for my system specs that i have on the XTU

Performance

The HD Graphics 505 should be slightly slower than the older Core-M GPU HD Graphics 5300, so modern games (as of 2016) will rarely run smoothly even at the lowest settings.

Found: https://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-HD-Graphics-505.182722.0.html

In other words, you are trying to get apple juice by squeezing lemons!
so i cant adjust some settings to make my pc run faster?

What I mean is that you can clock that CPU to 5GHz, but that onboard GPU is the downfall to any realistic gaming. Look at the games testing and the FPS charts that come with them.
Secondly, please read and follow this from now on.... https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/...osts-and-use-the-multi-quote-features.234427/

Stop trying to game on a laptop which has been tested and proved to fail at exactly that.

Not sure why you laugh. Looking at the link I provided earlier, most games tested were single FPS on average or maybe in the low double digits. Pretty obvious to me that the machine is simply not capable of doing what you want with it.

it sure doesn't mean it will get better dude.

you are expecting software to magic weak hardware into something better, which is never going to happen.

it is ultra low power draw, which while being great for battery life is never a good sign for high power usage. like gaming.

You can always play old games. I'm still playing Doom 2. Haven't found a better FPS yet.

My point in my earlier post was simple, you have a very low power 6W CPU in your laptop, even if you could overclock it I doubt very much that the cooler it has (for a 6W CPU) would be able to cope with the additional heat produced from a decent overclock.

I would like to add support for Apollo Lake CPUs to ThrottleStop but I do not own or have access to that CPU so it might be a while before this happens. Want to send me your laptop for a month so I can do some development work? Probably not. That's the problem. Without access to new hardware, it is impossible to write software like ThrottleStop.

Some day when ThrottleStop supports Apollo Lake, it is still not going to make any significant difference. A laptop with a 6 Watt CPU is not and never will be a gaming laptop. It is more of a check your email, and check out some stuff on the internet kind of device.

If you want to help with development, run my RegReport program and attach that file here or copy and paste the info to www.pastebin.com

https://www.sendspace.com/file/isttre

It will take a snapshot of the registers within your CPU so I will have a better idea of how to add support for Apollo Lake CPUs.

it doesn't matter how much you clock that cpu you could run it at 4ghz and it would still be a turd

to heck with trying to get apple juice from lemons hes trying to get blood from a stone

that laptop was never designed todo anything other then check email and watch youtube


and there aint no-moar

You need an upgrade period. That part is ranked like an Atom

Even the original Phenom stomps that cpu, I wonder if the A64 and AXP do too.

You need a desktop and that unit you have needs to be relegated to non gaming tasks.

If you need a laptop get a desktop replacement unit
