Hi all,

pretty new asus x556uq laptop (i7-7500u, 8gb, geforce 940MX, win10-64) gives me random drops in maxmimum CPU frequency (as dispalyed in resource monitor). Noticable during gaming by some lagging, the maximum frequency drops to about 10ish % and returns to 100% after 30 sec. I have the feeling there might be some 'smart' CPU resource allocating thingy messing around, but I'm nto sure.

Temperatures are OK, drivers/BIOS updates, high performance settings, no noticeable background processes.

Last resort is try a full OS reset, but I hate those unless really necessary. Am I missing something

edit: did a full OS reset, seemed to be stable on battery. When plugged in, it started happening again (checked power settings with regard to plugged in, nothing weird, all set to max when plugged in).

Thanks for the response, but power settings are all optimal, cooling is @ active, CPU states to 100%.

I have the exact same laptop, and the exact same problem. Temperatures are good, everything in high performance, all drivers updated and I still cant figure out a way to fix this.

Do you still have the asus live update center or any of the other asus software that was preinstalled with it?
Yes I still have the Asus Live Update, and doesn't mark any updates available.

Have you found the solution? I have the same trouble. I am tired of waiting my laptop to get full charge to play.

Have you checked the temps while the laptop is charging as the laptop will heat up more when it is being charged?
Also is the battery new?
