I just got my Framework laptop, and got it up and running very easily, but I seem to be having this weird issue where the processor is running a 0.39GHz, I’ve seen this happen with more than just the Framework laptops, but I thought I’d try here first, the CPU usage seems to sit arount the 5 - 10% mark as well.
I have the 12th Gen i5 DIY edition, 32GB RAM (1 x 32GB), 1TB NVMe, I have dual booted Windows 10, and Kubuntu, both have the latest updates, driviers installed (I had to use the Windows 11 Drivers)
I’m not super familiar with linux, but I have started dabling in it, so I’m not super familiar with it, I ran a script I found online that shows the current processor speeds, and it seems to show the processors switching between 400MHz and 2.1GHz (I’m not sure if it’s reporting them as the 2.1GHz when it’s idle?), this is the script:
watch -n.5 "grep \"^[c]pu MHz\" /proc/cpuinfo
This also happens regardless of whether the laptop is plugged in/charging (I’m using the Framework charger), or running on battery.
I ran a temp check software on windows and it said the cores were sitting around the 38C - 40C (86F - 104F) mark so it shouldn’t be thermal throttling, and using lm-sensors in ubuntu reports around the 30C - 32C range so even less.
I’ve tried what one person suggested here: https://superuser.com/questions/1617971/infamous-0-39-ghz-in-windows-10-issue-has-no-fixes and that seems to have done nothing.
I hope I’ve provided enough relevant information, and I hope that this isn’t just some dumb thing I forgot to fix?
