Frecuencia de la CPU flucúa mucho mientras juego. Es un problema o algo nuevo? i5-11600K

Hola! Adquirí un i5-11600K y lo tengo colocado en una mother ASUS Z590 TUF WiFi con una RTX 3060. Suelo jugar en mi monitor que tiene 24'' a 75Hz en 1080p (compraré otro más adelante).
La cosa es que, con generaciones anteriores, cuando jugaba a cualquier título pesado, digámosle así, la CPU se colocaba en su máxima frecuencia en todos sus núcleos. Por ejemplo: un 9600K a 4.3GHz, sin fluctuaciones. También funcionaba así en todas las generaciones previas a la 11va. 
Con el i5-11600K, jugando con VSync (odio el tearing), el reloj del micro fluctúa entre 1GHz y 4.9GHz, muuuy variable. Me pasa en juegos como: God of War, AC Valhalla y Horizon Zero Dawn, pero no en el Forza Horizon 5, acá si utiliza el procesador en su frecuencia de 4.6GHz. La pregunta es: es normal esto? Tienen diferentes ahorros de energía y otra eficiencia? Es mucho más alto el IPC y no necesita utilizar tan altas frecuencias? Tengo que activar el plan de alto rendimiento de Windows o utilizar software de 3ros (FullThrottle) para que el reloj se mantenga entre 4.6 y 4.9GHz, lo cual sería... normal??? Si quito el VSync y libero los FPS, el CPU si trabaja a su frecuencia de 4.6GHz. La cosa es que, con VSync activado, en 4ta, 6ta, 9na y 10ma generación, no me pasaba esto, sino que los relojes estaban a sus frecuencias más altas en lo que a todos los núcleos concierne. Espero sus comentarios y su ayuda. Muchas gracias!!!

GalacticaPhantom, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.


Just to let you know, we only provide support in English language and currently, we are using a translation tool.


In order for us to provide the most accurate assistance on this matter, first, we just wanted to confirm a few details about your system:

Is this a new computer?

When did you purchase the Intel® processor?

Did you build the computer?

Was the behavior of the processor's clock speed the same (fluctuating) before on this specific machine with games God of War, AC Valhalla and Horizon Zero Dawn?

When did the issue start?

Did you make any recent hardware/software changes that might cause this situation?

Which Windows* version are you using?

Does this scenario happen at home or in the work environment?

Please attach the SSU report so we can verify further details about the components in your platform, check all the options in the report including the one that says "3rd party software logs":

Any questions, please let me know.

Hi, Roberto, and sorry for posting in spanish. 
From the moment i bought the processor it fluctuates playing games. 
I build the computer and yes, it's new. I purchased the CPU a couple of months ago.
It happens on both, Windows 10 and 11.
It's a home computer. I only use it. I tried everything. All the components seems to work just fine.
I only wanna know if it is a new feature or what with the 11th generation. It didn't happen with previous gens.
The PC works just fine, games too. If i disable VSync or enable High perf power plan, the CPU goes all the way up to its max frequency. But with older CPU's i played with VSync and Balanced power plan with the CPU at its full speed. 
What to do? Is it normal? Thanks!!!

Hi, again, Roberto. Here's a video of God of War. Watch it and see the speed fluctuation of the CPU (not a very good quality vid, sorry). With 10th gen it stays at it maximum speed with a Balanced power plan, vsync and 60FPS (for example: i5-10600K at 4.5GHz all the time). The 11600K fluctuates a lot.

GalacticaPhantom, Thank you very much for providing that information.


"The question is: is this normal?", Yes, it is completely normal and expected for the Intel® processor clock speed to fluctuate while running different tasks such as games that are usually CPU/GPU intensive.

We advise to use our gameplay.intel.com to find the best in-game settings according to your processor:

"Is the IPC much higher and he doesn't need to use such high frequencies? Does he has to activate the high performance plan of Windows or use 3rd party software (FullThrottle) so that the clock stays between 4.6 and 4.9GHz, which would be... normal???", We always recommend to use the Intel® processor at stock configurations with the default BIOS settings. In reference to the "high performance plan of Windows ", you can always get in contact directly with Microsoft support directly to verify if they have some insights as to which power plans they recommend to use for games:

The behavior of the Intel® processor clock speed will be different depending on the games since not all of them, as you mentioned, have the same options/settings in reference to different energy savings and other efficiency features but, in order to check that we advise to get in contact directly with the developer of those specific games.


Still, in order to rule out a possible hardware issue with the Intel® processor, please install and run the Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool, it does an overall test on the unit and if it passes the test it means it is working properly:

We also suggest to install the latest graphics driver version provided by the manufacturer of the board and also to get in contact directly with ASUS support to make sure the latest BIOS version is currently installed on your computer and to confirm that the BIOS settings are set to defaults or to gather the instructions on how to do that:

Hi! I already did all these things. No issues with the diagnostic tool (pass). BIOS, default or not, the CPU fluctuates. I have the latest BIOS and the latest Nvidia graphics driver. 
Ok, if you say it's normal, it is then. BTW the CPU is a beast. Nice IPC improvement.
Well, thanks for everything, Albert. Have a nice weekend. Leo.

Hi GalacticaPhantom, You are very welcome, thank you very much for your response and for letting us know those details.


"No issues with the diagnostic tool (pass)", perfect, excellent, that indicates that there are no hardware issues with the processor and that the unit is working properly.


"I have the latest BIOS and the latest Nvidia graphics driver. ", that is great too, it is always recommended to use the drivers provided by the manufacturer, in this case, of the Nvidia graphics card, and to have the BIOS up to date since normally the BIOS updates contain fixes for different kind of scenarios.


Any other inquiries, do not hesitate to contact us again.
