View Full Version : G46 Games Framerate

05-16-2013, 04:16 PM
Hello, I have a G46Vand everything seemed to work fine, until I got some games with high requirements, like Battlefield 3 or AC 3.
When i got them, my laptop was plugged in and both games were running perfect, with high framerate and everything, Battlefield at Ultra settings and AC at very high, but the other day when i tried to play them with the laptop using the battery, the framerate drops and makes them impossible to play, no matter at what settings I tried (Battlefield at low and AC at normal). I tried to modify the power plan settings and made everything on battery as it is when plugged in, including the processor and the graphics card.

These are the only high requirements games I bought at this moment and as I said, they work perfect when the laptop is plugged in, charging, but I can play other games like League of Legends both using the battery and plugged in charging at the same framerate on any battery power plan ~ 120-150 FPS.

Any thoughts on this? Of course I can plug it in when playing, but it would be nice to solve this issue and not having to find an outlet to plug the laptop in.

Well, ASUS designed the G series notebook in that way, if you want to play games, then you must connect to AC. That is a BIOS related behavior and there is not much that we can do to change that.

Having it plugged in when the battery is fully charged would lower the battery life and autonomy....

that's not true, battery automatically stops charging when it's full, and FYI it would not charge if the battery is at 95% - 100% to reserve battery life. now enjoy this little machine

Asus laptops battery are build to stop charging when it reaches 95-100% and also your battery. Ive ready about something like tyour doubts somewhere. Would try and find it and post it here when i found it and hope it answers your questions. :D
