Overclocking Intel Apollo Lake and Gemini Lake TDP

Last Updated on 9 de Janeiro, 2021 by Vítor Fernandes

Overclocking is the practice of increasing the clock rate of a computer to exceed that certified by the manufacturer. Commonly, operating voltage is also increased to maintain a component’s operational stability at accelerated speeds.


First, download HWiNFO (direct link from official webpage). Extract the zip to your desktop and execute the tool to view your current TDP limit! Don’t worry, it’s a portable version. After, download the tool to permite such alterations. Extract the zip to your computer desktop! Leave the OVERCLOCK folder as it is.

See the example below, from a original 6W TDP N4100 intel Celeron.

Don’t want to use the command line to execute the bottom code? Then, use the attached (6W, 10W and 15W) files within archive zip you just downloaded.

1 – Overclock to 10W TDP.

pushd "C:\Users\%username%\Desktop\overclock" & RW.exe /Min /Nologo /Stdout /Command="WRMSR 0x610 0x0 0x00DD8600"

Overclocked Intel Gemini Lake 10W TDP

2 – Overclock to 15W TDP.

pushd "C:\Users\%username%\Desktop\overclock" & RW.exe /Min /Nologo /Stdout /Command="WRMSR 0x610 0x0 0x00DD8A00"

Overclocked Intel Gemini Lake 15W TDP

Resetting to default values. Or just reboot your machine!

pushd "C:\Users\%username%\Desktop\overclock" & RW.exe /Min /Nologo /Stdout /Command="WRMSR 0x610 0x0 0x00DD8600"
