    Zephyrus G14 RTX 2060 GPU memory clock on battery

    Hi, this is my first post on these forums. I've had my Zephyrus G14 with 4900hs and RTX 2060 for a few days, and I've noticed that the GPU memory clock drops drastically from ~5500mhz to 810mhz when the laptop is unplugged. This substantially decreases GPU performance by more than 70%, at what appears to be little decrease in power consumption. Owners of the GTX 1650ti version have shown me that the 1650ti version does not downclock it's GPU memory when unplugged, opting instead to downclock the GPU - this results in far less decrease in performance, but achieves similar power savings.

    This results in the peculiar situation where the 1650ti G14 is actually faster than the 2060 G14 while on battery. I think this is a pretty unacceptable state of affairs, given how much more the 2060 version costs. I certainly expected to get superior performance when I made the decision to go for the 2060 version over the less expensive SKUs. I believe this is an ASUS software issue rather than an issue with Windows or Nvidia drivers, so it should be resolvable by ASUS. I would grateful if ASUS could rectify this situation.

    Thank You.
