Better FPS in games on Power Saving?

Feb 5, 2019
So I always put my power plan on High performance
but accidentally today I switched to Power Saving! And the surprising thing was that I had like +15-20 FPS in all of my games! What's wrong with my laptop?! It's a G551vw Asus gaming laptop.
whenever I switch to high performance, my fps and performance goes down! ( I don't play on battery! its always plugged in.)

The only reasonable explanation I could see would be thermal throttling. The components in the Laptop probably get hot enough that they down clock themselves - limiting performance.

Let's wait to see who else chimes in though.
