Thermal boost on pop_os/ubuntu 20.04

    installed pop_os on a new blade 15 2020 base. Everything seems to work great, and with a few tweaks to power management I can get either 70FPS on shadow of the tomb raider or 7 hours of battery.

    The only problem is that the CPU clock never rises above 2.6Ghz on any core, and while the fans stay silent in this configuration it's costing me a lot of performance

    any tips on getting the CPU to throttle up on linux?

    Was able to solve this by removing irqbalance and rebooting, the CPUs now boost appropriately.
