I have the p37 laptop I bought a couple weeks ago. I just realized that my frame rates are around 20fps lower than they used to, and my Heaven benchmark went from ~1700 down to ~1000. I can't for the life of me find where this was changed. I've looked under "Intel HD Graphics Control Panel" which is set to maximum performance. Windows power settings are also max. I updated video drivers which didn't change anything. What am I missing?
Edit: I just ran CPU-Z and it's only running at 1700mhz. If i unplug the laptop, it goes down to 800mhz, then when I plug it back in it'll go to 3500mhz for about 20 seconds, then back down to 1700mhz and is locked there

1. Is it plugged in?

2. Did you just wake it up from sleep?

Try to find the chipset drivers. Perhaps there's a new driver out to fix the issue. What you're describing sounds like a BIOS problem...
