Hello, Intel support community:
For the last three months, since the purchase of my CPU, I've had weird performance issues (mainly in games). Around particles and physics a game will experience a significant drop in framerate. This is also causing my GPU to bottleneck. I've done a bunch of research and testing regarding the issue and it seems to be a problem with the processor itself. From what I've gathered, the CPU is giving faulty temperature readings and as a result throttling when it does not need to.
Here are the other threads that I have made online. They contain more information, such as benchmarks and temperature stats.
Here are a few benchmarks I did with a friend to ensure it was not something to do with my GPU.
What would you suggest I do?
