I’m running ArchLinux.
I set up my FrameWork laptop back in September, and I could have sworn that the CPU frequency scaling worked correctly and went up and down depending on what I was doing.
Now, I see that that CPU frequency is locked at 2800 MHz on 7 cores, and 1 core goes down to 900 MHz
The only work around I have found is the following:
echo passive > /sys/devices/system/cpu/intel_pstate/status cpupower frequency-set -g ondemand
With that, my frequency drops down to 400 MHz and scales up under load.
To anyone out there with
What CPU frequencies are you observing?
P.S. I have had the CPU also clock down to 200 MHz, but that is due to the displayport/USB-C sticker issue. I have removed the adapter, and also fixed the sticker since then, and the pstate driver still seems to be acting weird.
