i5-8265u Undervolting

Does undervolting harm the CPU? I am using Huawei Matebook 13 with i5-8265u processor. I managed to unvervolt CPU core voltage by -110mv without any stability issue.

 

I wonder if there will be any side effects in the long run and is it true that CPU producers use a stock voltage which is generally above what the CPU needs.

 

Thank you.

Hello Oİnal,

 

Thank you for posting on this Intel Community.

 

Intel is aware of the Commerce Department's addition of Huawei and its affiliates to the Entity List and must comply with the requirements until or unless the US Government changes its direction. Intel’s required compliance includes ceasing all shipments / transfers of hardware, software, technical data, and any technical assistance to Huawei.

 

Regards,
