View Full Version : Asus ROG GU501GM Low GPU Usage/Power limit thottling

07-17-2018, 05:17 AM
So i purchased a ROG GU501GM from best buy on June 23. It has a i7-8750H and a GTX 1060 which is okay for playing games but when I tested it it didnt perform as it would normally do.

After I downloaded my games into it my framerate isnt as good compared to similarly spec'd laptops on the internet. I downlaoded Intel Extreme Tunnig Utility and it occasionally shows "Yes" on Power Limit Throttling.

I have also used MSI Afterburner and the Percaplimit is Power and Voltage. Same goes to GPU-z (perfcapreason is Power and voltage). I also notice the may GPU usage will hover about 50-70% only and rarely goes up to 90% in PUBG

I tried many fixes like putting nvidia settings to max performance, reinstalling drivers and reinstalling OS.

Do you have any suggestions in fixing this?
