Processor Folding on a Ryzen APU

Since my wife was away for a few days, I took the opportunity to reinstall the folding client on my computers. I have a Ryzen 5 2400G and a laptop with a Ryzen 7 2700u.

These are budget chips and the results are not overwelming.

The results are not that great.
On the 2400G, I'm getting and average 80K ppd. 20K ppd for the cores and around 60K ppd for the GPU.

The laptop is a Lenovo e585 but the APU is seriously held back by the throttling.
Using the default client settings, I was getting an average of 37K ppd. 12K ppd for the cores and 25K ppd for the gpu. But I noticed that the chip temperature was only at 65C and the GPU frequency was limited to a maximum of 500MHz (vs 1300 MHz in the specs)
So I disabled folding on the CPU, the temperature went down to 57C and got an average of 42K ppd on the GPU. This time the max frequency was around 1150 MHz averaging 970MHz.

Anyone else using an APU for folding?
