    Don't bother messing around with modded bioses unless you really know what you're doing. Be sure to have a proper dump of your stock bios and an spi programmer in hands, in case something goes wrong.

    I mean, the link itself is safe, it's dropbox. The download is just a zip file with the bios file in it.

    Best stuff I read since I bought the laptop! Thanks a lot, updating to BIOS version 307 completely fixed the random FPS drop for me.

    Late on this, but just to let you know, I believe the problem was due to putting the laptop on a elevated surface for some reason.

    That's a known issue. The thing is, why on earth placing a laptop on an inclined surface would affect its performance? I guess we will never know.

    bios 307 is now available on the official asus gl504gm support page.

    ... still waiting on that audio driver update to fix the issue of no sound after the laptop goes to sleep.

    I am surprised to see this many people with this stuttering issue; looking forward to getting home and updating to newest bios (fingers crossed it fixes issue). I thought that i possibly bought a junk/bad egg/damaged gaming laptop. I was getting pretty sick to my stomach where my gaming desktop has similar specs (i7-8700k, gtx1060 6gb, 16gb ram) and was handling the games buttery smooth compared to my stuttering laptop. Even updated my ram to 2 x 16gb (overkill i know) instead of 1 x 16gb, read that 2 sticks has better performance.

    ***Update***

    Updating to BIOS 307 seems to have corrected the stuttering in my gaming. Will keep an eye on it and see how it holds out. Pretty relieved having it work like it should.
