Poor Performance on AMD Threadripper

I’ve just installed Manjaro on my machine which has an AMD 2950X Threadripper processor. The whole OS feels very “sluggish” when compared to Windows. I have investigated the clock speed of the CPU using cpupower frequency-info and tried to set the CPU to a performance governor, however, the CPU is only running at a maximum of the base clock speed, with the frequency usually being set at 2-2.4GHz, (for reference this CPU has a base of 3.5GHz and a boost of up to 4.4GHz, on windows I normally get around 4.3GHz under load) . I have included the output below:

analyzing CPU 0:
driver: acpi-cpufreq
CPUs which run at the same hardware frequency: 0
CPUs which need to have their frequency coordinated by software: 0
maximum transition latency: Cannot determine or is not supported.
hardware limits: 2.20 GHz - 3.50 GHz
available frequency steps: 3.50 GHz, 2.80 GHz, 2.20 GHz
available cpufreq governors: ondemand performance schedutil
current policy: frequency should be within 3.50 GHz and 3.50 GHz.
The governor “performance” may decide which speed to use
within this range.
current CPU frequency: Unable to call hardware
current CPU frequency: 2.42 GHz (asserted by call to kernel)
boost state support:
Supported: yes
Active: no

Is there anything I can do to force the CPU to not drop below 3.5GHz and boost from that point?

Thanks for any help/guidance!

you have to wait next Stable kernel version ( or go in Testing )

you can add CoreCtl

results are here

you can edit the /etc/default/cpupower. keep in mind you have to edit with sudo-rights.

one of the first lines defines the “min_freq” where you can set the minimum frequency that will be used. uncomment the # and
min_freq=“3.5GHz”
reboot and it works
