I am doing CPU-intensive work on my Thinkpad X220 laptop and I find the performance bad. Interestingly, the CPU becomes more powerful if I disconnect the AC power and run only on battery! It does slow down after a while though, probably because the CPU gets too hot.

Still I find the CPU too slow and I need to increase its performance somehow. I installed jupiter manager, but setting cpu to maximum performance from it did not change anything.
