TechPowerUp today released the latest version of ThrottleStop by Kevin Glynn, a utility that gives you fine control over your processor's power-management, letting you squeeze the most performance out of it without having to overclock it. This utility is particularly useful to override processor power-management by OEMs in notebooks, although it's just as useful for desktops. Version 9.6 of ThrottleStop adds support for 13th Gen Core desktop and mobile "Raptor Lake" processors. A bug that caused stability issues with AVX512 has been fixed. The maximum possible IccMax values for 12th Gen and 13th Gen Core processors has been increased. FIVR-PL4 reporting has been fixed for some CPUs. There are several aesthetic updates to the user interface with this release.

ThrottleStop only supports Intel processors.

Anyone has before and after benchmarks?
Before and after what? ThrottleStop can improve performance if your computer has a throttling problem. It might also improve performance if you use it to increase the turbo power limits or if you use ThrottleStop to overclock an unlocked K or HX series processor. Any improvement depends on what you do with the program.

Perfect, i recently got a laptop that when plugged in would clock too high and just created unnecessary heat, noise and power consumption.
Simply ticking the Disable Turbo option keeps CPU clocks down to on battery levels which is perfectly fine for my daily usage requirements.

One problem is i can't get it to load on Windows 11 startup, i put a shortcut to the program into the startup folder, it shows the program in the Task Manager startup tab, but it won't run til i manually launch it.

ThrottleStop needs administrator privileges and needs to start after you log in. It is best to add it to the Windows startup sequence using the Task Scheduler.

Here is a guide that shows how to do that.

i9 13900HX using version 9.6 to adjust the CPU voltage does not take effect, I want to know if the next version can support it

TS 9.6 is working for everyone else with a 13900HX. Post a screenshot of the FIVR window if you need help.

Make sure core isolation memory integrity is disabled and follow the link in my signature to disable VBS. If you need those features, you will not be able to use software to adjust the voltage.

Reboot and delete the ThrottleStop.INI configuration file. Adjust both the CPU core and the CPU P cache.

If the FIVR window shows Undervolt Protection, you will need to disable that in the BIOS if possible.

Memory integrity and VBS are turned off. The TS 9.6 regulates the voltage to -172.9mv, and the FIVR interface offset shows the compensation voltage

Your BIOS has enabled Intel Undervolt Protection.
ThrottleStop cannot adjust the CPU voltage until Undervolt Protection is disabled in the BIOS before Windows starts.

What laptop model do you have? Many Lenovo laptops with the 13900HX processor work correctly by using ThrottleStop.

Try installing an older BIOS version. Maybe that will fix this problem for you.
