Which means that intel_pstate works in the active mode by default and
so it uses its internal governor.

That governor is more performance-oriented than ondemand and it very
well may cause more power to be allocated for the processor - at the
expense of the GPU.

The lower-than-expected frame rate may result from that, in principle.

One way to mitigate that might be to use intel_pstate in the passive
mode (pass intel_pstate=passive to the kernel in the command line)
along with either ondemand or schedutil as the governor.
