Hello,

Recently I purchased a Acer Laptop Aspire E5-573G-75B3.

Here are the specs:
Intel Core i7 5500U (2.40GHz)
8GB Memory 1TB HDD
NVIDIA GeForce 940M (4gb dedicated memory)
1920 x 1080
Windows 8.1

Even on lowest settings the laptop can barely run even source games like TF2 and CSGO. Single digits fps (unplayable) while unplugged.

What I have already done:
-Switched to High Performance power plan

How can I make my laptop run better without being plugged in? Even my older laptops have been fine running games without being plugged in.
