Hello there , I have an Asus vivobook s551 , I noticed that if i want to play a game ( I game when charger is plugged) the FPS of the game will be severely lowered , i didn't know what the problem was at first but i noticed that when the laptops battery got up to about 90% the performance went back to normal and the FPS were good again . what could be the issue here and how do i fix it ? It's really not convenient if i have to wait until my battery charges so i can game :S
Thanks in advance
To be clear , this is not a temperature issue , cuz it happens when i start gaming . also , i can game for hours when laptop is fully charged without loss of performance . I'm thinking the gpu underclocks it self until theres enough charge in the battery ?
The first thing to do would be to make sure you are set to high/maximum performance in your powersettings (both unplugged and plugged in). Normally you would only see the throttling when not plugged in so it is a bit interesting that it is throttling you down while charging.
Yes, but it could be Asus's program causing the throttling, which is why I would try uninstalling it and seeing if the issue persists. Some of those proprietary battery performance programs can cause issues like that.
