Intel i7-8550U, running Intel XTU Benchmark I get the error message/notice "benchmark score may not be valid since power source has changed" when I test my laptop (plugged in) for bench scores. I'm not changing anything like the power source, it is constantly plugged in and I would like to know why I get this message.

Hello WBern2, Thank you for posting on the Intel® Communities. The Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel® XTU) is only supported for Intel® unlocked processors, the error message you are getting is related to this. You can use it to monitor your information, but when running tests it will not provide accurate results. Amy C Intel Customer Support Technician Under Contract to Intel Corporation
