Hello @Callumnoble

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.

In order to check this further, could you please provide the following information?


1- Please elaborate more regarding the "less usage" and FPS behavior. What is the current value/CPU usage percentage, and the FPS that you are getting? What were the values/behavior with the previous CPU (Intel® Core™ i3-9100F Processor)?

2- What are the apps and games experiencing this behavior?

3- When seeing this behavior, please take a screenshot from Windows® Task Manager from the Processes Tab, and another screenshot from the Performance Tab showing CPU and GPU(s) utilization.

4- Also, please run the Intel® System Support Utility (Intel® SSU) and attach the report to this thread to gather more details about your system.

  • Download the Intel® SSU and save the application on your computer
  • Open the application, check the "Everything" checkbox, and click "Scan" to see the system and device information. The Intel® SSU defaults to the "Summary View" on the output screen following the scan. Click the menu where it says "Summary" to change to "Detailed View".
  • To save your scan, click Next and click Save.
