I have an intel i7 8th gen cpu with 1.8 - 3.6 GHz cpu frequency. I haven't managed to boost my cpu frequency to the 3.6 max, so it usually tops at 1.78 - 1.9 GHz. I have noticed that, for no apparent reason, my computer starts slowing down and when I look at the task manager it says that my frequency is 0.40 GHz. Most of the time my cpu doesn't overheat when it slows down, it just starts to slow down for a few minutes and then goes back to the 1.78 GHz limit.
Any of you could tell me what could be the cause of that, and how do I solve it?
(I have already set in the power settings to run on 100%)
also, if any one could tell me how to I do the Boost frequency thing, it'll be much appreciated :)
