Usually everything runs smooth 100%, BUT the second I launch certain games (Cyberpunk, COD BO Cold War) the voltage drops to 0.688 (and stays there exactly) the core speed drops to 0.786 ghz, and the total usage will not pass 25%. No temperature issues, under 65°.This causes the game to take several minutes to get to the main menu, and getting under 20 fps in game, extremely high frame time. Before launching those games and after closing those games the voltage is around 1.1-1.2 and the clock at 4.3ghz, like normal. Weird thing is, when playing gears 5, no issues at all, cpu functions as intended! Everything worked fine this morning. Have tried loading default bios, restarting windows, unplugging, etc.

Please help :'( I don't know what else to do....Am newish when it comes to computers... Thank you!!

You can change the CPU minimum threshold in the advanced power options.

I can't show you the next step due to policies on my computer but you will need to find Processor Power Management and expand that and then change the Minimum Processsor State. Note this may make your CPU more hotter and potentially unstable.
