Brand New S17 3080 Power throttling

Hi guys,

I was comparing my S17 3080 QHD TimeSpy to other online, noticed that my CPU score was low 9000 points instead of 11000.

So I ran HWinfo and aida stress test and I found that it triggered:
IA:Electric design point/other ICCmax PL4 SVID
Ring limit reasons
Ring max vr voltage ICCmax PL4

CPU boost to only 30w when GPU+CPU loaded .
When I load CPU only none of them trigger and it boost to 80w.

Need your help

Detail your specs and give specific model numbers.
There are too many hardware options to be sure, but it sounds like you have a total power draw limit rather than limits on each part individually.

This gen is an awful time to buy a new gaming laptop IF you were upgrading.
