Project SBC Power Tool App (TDP Control - Windows 10)

So I found this piece of software when I was using the 1 Netbook Onemix 3. It allows you to view the current TDP settings and change them. It is compatible with the chipset in the Framework (I believe).

It is called the Power Control App:

What I’m wondering:

What is the default TDP settings for the Framework Laptop?

I changed it, and forgot to write down the default, but I believe the picture shows the right values for PL1 and PL2. Could someone from the Framework team confirm?

It seems it works, and so my follow up question would be, are there any limitation we should be aware of here? I don’t want to exceed the default options in anyway.

Nevermind simply changing the power slider when clicking on the battery will restore any custom values to their defaults.
Looks like from this you can find the min and max values.

Would the advice be to leave those alone and not mess with the TDP?

@2disbetter developer here, changing tdp is absolutely fine. Just don’t go too low (less than 5W) because your machine will work at a snail pace and changing it back will take 15 minutes, or you have to reboot.

Going too high usually overwhelms the cooling system and you throttle. I typically don’t go above 25-30W on my 1165g7 devices.

Just bumping this to mention that it 100% doesn’t work on Windows 11.
