Looking for help to fix the GPU clock of my Vega8

Recently, I've brought a Envy (x360 13) laptop from HP and it runs with a 3500U and a Vega8, but its performance was so bad on gaming and this doesn't makes any sense.


It only have about 25fps in Apex legends (720p lowest setting) and 19 fps in Rainbow6 siege (720p lowest setting), while those online benchmarks videos are showing that the Vega8 in 900Mhz should have performed about 50~ 60 fps in 1080p with high and medium setting.


After i run some openGL stress tests, it turns out the driver itself was lowering my vega 8 clock all the way from 1200 MHz(Boost clock) to 300Mhz(idle clock) once it reach 72C, and it will never boost again even it's temperature is already dropped down to 48C(which is even lower than it's idle temperature while booting (52C)).


It will only boost again after i closed the stress test and run it again.


What should i do in-case to keep my gpu clock boosts around 950 ~ 1150 Mhz while gaming?


Is there any way to keep the laptop boosting the clock again after the temperature has droped down to 68C so it will running around 75 ~ 65C while gaming?
