CPU speed always at max since


Active Member
Hello everyone. My SP4 IS ALWAYS in turbo mode even when there is nothing running. It causes my device to heat up and it also causes battery drain. I had just reformatted it 2 days ago and yesterday I got the update to anniversary update and now my device is always at 2.92 ghz. Is there any way to snoop out what is keeping the speed revved up? When I go into task manager the CPU usage is at 4-8% or even less when nothing is running. But the darn CPU won't slow down!

Thanks in advance guys. I really appreciate it

Same here, i7 @ 2.19ghz (without charger connected) / 3.27Ghz with charger, at all times.

Verified that HyperV features were not installed after AU installation.
