Intel I5-7200U Power consumtion too high Issue


Hi there,

In the past two months , when I'm using software that is graphics demanding such as games or Autocad, the FPS drop for 30 seconds. After that it returns normal for some minutes before the FPS drops again. Running the HWmonitor and logging the sensors, right before this problem occur, the CPU power consumption is behond 15W wich makes it to decrease the cpu clock and the Gpu performance as well. What can i make to decrease this power consumption?

The log is test2.CSV - Google Drive , and the problem I'm talking about is from line 196 to 206. thank for the support.
