Don't worry about it. It is doing what it's supposed to do, it is not an 'issue'.
The CPUs used in Laptops vary the clock speed depending on what job they are doing. Running at high clock speeds all the time increases the power consumption and the need for good heat dissipation.

My Laptop is a good example. Nominally a 2.5 GHz processor and it varies from 0.8 GHz to 3.1 GHz depending on the task involved.
A good time to observe this is during a Windows 10 update, just look at the CPU in the Task Manager.
On mine this will cover that whole range of clock speeds at various times.
You can do a similar thing with any application you have in mind.

Mine is a Toshiba and it is certainly not stuck at 0.8 GHz. I don't use the extra section put in by Toshiba for Power Options(Toshiba Eco Utility is off).
There are enough Power Plan options without adding Toshibas.
