1 month ago i bought an asus Gl502vs :
8 gb ram
The problem is that most demanding games like far cry 5 or rise of the tomb raider are unplayable. I am around 30 - 70 frames with 50% gpu usage and cpu not hitting 100%.
Maximum performance is selected in nvidias control panel and also in windows.
I tried everything else i know but i just cant it get to work. I hope you have some ideas.
so the cpu at 99%?
what is the gpu/cpu temp during the game?
No the cpu is not maxed out. Most of the time between 50 and 80%.
I undervoltet de cpu and gpu and while heavy gaming, the cpu reaches 80-85 mostly and the gpu around 80.
Clock speeds stay the same during gameplay .. so no thermal throttling imo.
i have some similar problem with my Asus G502VS (fy042t)
when i start a benchmark for either GPU or CPU, they hit 99% usage, but in everry game i play, my cpu is at 50-80% and GPU at around 70%
this causes games like AC origins to run at 43 fps only in 1080p and with big ups and downs in fps, but when i choose 4k resolution it gets a constant 36 fps (all on ultra) and the GPU ist maxed out at 95-99%
i updated my drivers, undervolted my cpu and gpu and tried everything in the nvidia control panel, also searched for anything limiting my power consuption but i couldn't find anything, only that this laptop works pretty good for others... really don't know what to do anymore
I kinda solved the problem back in the day. What i did: i bought a second 8 gb ram stick so the laptop actually uses dual channel speed. After that i got around 30 fps more in everygame. Sounds wierd ... and it also was wierd.
After that however, i sold the laptop just because of the high thermal values.
I already have 16gb of ram, also single channel, but according to what i found on the internet, it doesn't really change anything with dual channel and it's also quite expensive
I think i have to keep searching
