  • ASUS laptop with a i7-9750H that won't push up to 4.5GHz

    Hello, my ASUS laptop with an i7-9750H coffee lake will not go above 2.6GHz. After trying to play a game the day before, it wouldn't, but I thought that was since the laptop was on all day. Today I attempted to play the game and get the core to push up to 4.5GHz, but it didn't, and only after 30 minutes of it being on.
    I highly doubt my core's max speed is 2.6GHz. I've checked in BIOS to see if I can enable a setting to make it go faster, in XTU I see that turbo boost is enabled, and when I benchmarked it, the core went up to 4GHz for a couple seconds.
    Why won't it go up in a game where I'm not getting great FPS (with RTX 2060), and is there a way I can manually up it?
    If you want specifics from speccy, here:

    If you can help, thank you.

    It's called max turbo and cpus can only sustain it for short bursts like opening an app or under heavy load until a max temp is reached. That's when the turbo stops. CPUs can only sustain their base clock unless you specifically overclock it. Check intel's spec sheet if you want to know more.
