  • Sudden Low CPU Mark

    I updated some hardware in my computer to the specs below. I ran Passmark Performance test and was happy with the results. I then upgraded my OS hard drive to a Samsung 990 Pro, still happy with the results. Then a couple of weeks later I ran performance test again and the CPU score went from 27,725 to 23,671. I did upgrade to Performance Test 11 but I don't remember if I got 27,xxx CPU scores with the new version also. Unfortunately I didn't screenshot the breakdown of the CPU mark on the original test. Everything went down slightly as you can see (except the disk mark) but the CPU was a big drop. There have been no other hardware changes besides the disk. I went through the common reasons for pc running slowly list. According to hwinfo there is no thermal throttling occurring. The temp got to 83 for a couple of seconds during testing. Not sure what's going on. Any help would be appreciated.

    Swapping the SSD should have no effect on the CPU's performance.

    I wonder if you might have reset the BIOS settings and the RAM dropped out of XMP mode.

      I checked that D.O.C.P is enabled.

        So I bit the bullet and did a clean install of Windows 11. All is well. Wish I could have figured out what the problem was though.
