Question New Windows 10 laptop CPU runs faster on "better performance", anyone more knowledgeable than me know why this is?

Oct 2, 2022
I've recently got a new laptop (MSI GF63 Thin 11UC-081UK ), and I've noticed significantly slower performance when on battery power, I know this is a feature in laptops to protect them, but this was a lot slower than usual. I recently found out that when I turn the power mode from "best performance" to "better performance", it runs normally. I noticed this when on best performance the start menu took about half a second to open, but on better performance it opened a lot faster. I also noticed the CPU speed was faster in task manager. Is anyone able to explain why this happens?
Sorry if anything in this post doesn't make sense, I'm new to PC gaming, I'll try to explain anything in more detail if needed.
