Really should have done my homework better on building this rig, I first planned to run it on a Hp Pavillion gaming machine only to realize that it had USB C not thunderbolt 3. I then sold the machine and got the swift 5. he most important info I missed was reading up about the performance on ULV machines and tdp 15-watt processors in this guide on the buyer's guide link. I mainly planned to use this machine for gaming (big mistake) especially for CPU heavy games like call of duty warzone. I think the CPU throttles. You can also tweak CPU priority to improve framerates. At first, I was getting really low framerates and after numerous guides, I'm averaging at about 80 fps at 1080p.
