Check task manager and see if there are any other processes running during the benchmark. Ideally you would have 1-2% CPU usage before running the benchmark. Also check CPU temps during the benchmark to see if you may be thermal throttling.

My cpu temp maxes out at 80c so it can’t be throttling. I have the iets gt500 laptop cooler things a beast. And I always make sure my cpu no more than 5% usage during my runs. Honestly stumped here.

Then monitor the frequency and make sure it is reaching it's rated speeds. Any chance you checked scores on another benchmark and can compare previous scores to today?

Just did a TimeSpy

CPU score when everything was fine was 10113

now its 8033

cpu running at full 4.4Ghz....man this is mind blowing. what on earth is happening...

Nothing running in the background, cpu at 2% before tests.

Power plan in your operating system. And what is it the power limit in watts it reaches when running the test?

video driver update ? bios updates ? bios fixes for security flaws ?
When I had the good physics results I already had the latest BIOS and drivers. I just decided to test again one day and now I have a 40% decrease on physics test.

auto update of video card drivers ? Manually install what was the newest when you bought the laptop.
