The Framework Laptop is advertised with two Power Limits for the CPU. A power limit 1, aka TDP, of 28 W, and power limit 2 (short term boost) of 60 W.
In BIOS I have configured max turbo mode, battery charge limit to 70 %. I tried two different third party 65 W power supplies: my CPU, i5-1135G7, reaches PL1 but not PL2.
From my measurements with ThrottleStop/HWinfo64 and also a wall powermeter max power draw of the CPU (PL2) is 30 W.
I’ve given up on the Framework laptop for the time being…it’s one of the most buggy laptops you can buy. It isn’t a dependable piece of equipment at it stands today, especially when you compare it to other more mature manufacturers (sure, they have issues too, but not to the extent that the Framework laptop is).
Looks like you’re on Windows. Check that the Windows performance slider is set to “Best performance”. Boost is limited to <30W on “Better performance” or lower settings. On “Best performance” HWiNFO shows PL2 at 60W on my machine.
We know. I’m just saying that anyone should know what they’re getting into when purchasing anything (laptop or otherwise…or marriage, or career…).
It’s not a competition.
Just know that for the same amount of money…you could potentially have a smoother experience elsewhere. i.e. know your options.
I’ve done my part for the cause (buying from Framework)…but the hardware and experience is not living up to the expectation. So that’s that. I’ve moved my work to other systems, while still waiting for Framework to get the laptop into shape.
(i.e. the ‘benefit’ for the upgradability and repairability won’t materialise until it’s a piece of hardware that people would stick with.)
