    I have the same laptop, unfortunately forced to BIOS 314 today by a Windows update (while I kept away for months from optional update 311).
    Here is 310, let me know if manual downgrade works or Windows will sill force BIOS update through Win update (maybe would be a slick move to disable System Firmware from Device Manager...).

    Manual downgrade is working. Restore old driver and select first option (Software is not working with new driver or something like that), after that windows is not forcing you into updates anymore, for now... And I hate forced updates! I'm on route to install Linux on my laptop!

    Maybe disabling it would be even better to not risk future updates either... Doing this before you rebooted and manually downgraded to 310 BIOS?
    Or you just rolled back through Device Manager and it automatically reinstalled previous BIOS?

    First I manualy downgraded, then restored old driver (it do not restore old driver anyway), then rebooted. In exactly this order. Now I even disabled firmware.

    This is crazy anyway...
    Cinebench R15
    before (BIOS 310+ThrottleStop): 1230, after BIOS 314: 933 (!!) it's a performance disaster: like having a laptop degraded to gen before i7-8750h!!
    Even creating Windows power profiles as an indirect workaround to simulate ThrottleStop are useless: I've tested with CPU max 20% usage capped, and acts exactly the same as no cap: 3900MHz 96°C (!!), then thermal throttles to 2700MHz 80°C the rest of the time. This means this crazy Intel lock ignores even Windows power consumption settings!

    3D Mark CPU Score (Time Spy)
    before (BIOS 310+ThrottleStop): 6886, after BIOS 314: 5739

    We bought a laptop for 1900€ that 2-3 years later works like a 1400€ laptop. ASUS should refund customers.
    Thank you Intel+ASUS: for sure my next PC will be from another brand and with Ryzen.

    ASUS MUST PROVIDE AN OPTION TO RE-ENABLE UNDERVOLTING THROUGH BIOS for those who think speed is more important than extreme security.

    Guys please help me. My windows just updated my firmware and my throttlestop does not work anymore...
    Without throttlestop my CPU cores are 85C on freshly repasted cores.

    How do you guys downgrade the bios?

    Read above. Probably the best procedure is:
    1. disable Device Manager: Firmware > System Firmware. Or RMB and choose Properties, Rollback driver option + disable System Firmware (from menu select View > Hidden devices if you need...).
    2. after you put 'GL703GS-AS.310' in C:\ root *, reboot, enter the BIOS (keep F2 pressed) and enter the flash section of BIOS and proceed manually choosing GL703GS-AS.310 BIOS file...
    I think it's better to (rollback in case and) disable System Firmware BEFORE you proceed, since I've read many users saying that Win is quite fast to find and re-install in background the new BIOS after your first reboot with the old 310.
    Am I right @barko?

    EDIT: * a USB pendrive is required with the 'GL703GS-AS.310' file since EZ Flash may not show Windows partitions from BIOS, limited to EFI system partition only... so prepare one before you start.

    You are right. Anyway, my laptop is still with this procedure on same bios version, no forced updates for now. I rebooted laptop few times, I checked for updates of windows. All ok. And of course, ThrottleStop is working as expected.

    Does "C:\ root" mean just to place the file in C:\?
    Also are there any risks when downgrading the bios?
    Does every gl703gs has the flashing section in BIOS? I am asking because I watched few videos how to downgrade bios and people were using different software with USB drives.
