    Angry G75 Slows down on battery while running games

    Hey guys is it really normal that a G75 is running totally slow, about 5fps at its lowest and 33fps max when its running games on battery even if it is in high performance mode? and not just that the screen is blinking every 5 seconds or so when it Im running a game on battery.

    I dont really want to go to the service center because they might get the warranty out of my laptop.


    heres the specs

    G75VW-TS72
    i7-3610QM @ 2.3GHz
    750gb HDD
    16gb ddr3 Ram
    Nvidia GTX670m 3gb

    gpu draws more power. playing games on battery only is not a good idea.

    Hi, Even your in High Performance power plan (Power4Grear or Windows) it's adjusted to 'On Battery' mode. That means there're some power saving options and most of the process states are set to lowest when it enabled. So I mostly sure that this could e the reason your having the low fps. (hope plugged in mode works fine for you).

    Simply,
    • TaskBar->Power Plan->More Power Options
    • Click on 'Change Plan Settings' -> 'Change Advanced Power Settings'
    • Goto each node and you will see, even you in High Performance, there're two controls one for plugged In and one for On battery
    • So change 'On Battery' settings equals to 'Plugged In' Settings like Maximum and Minimum Process States, Power Saving Options...etc


    By this way, you will get the same performence as your in a 'Plugged In' mode. But surely will result to drain the battery quick.

    Hope this is helpful...

    iBoody, even if you make those changes the system will still throttle itself. It's built into the system's architecture and isn't a defect.

    but celcil, systems architecture level energy consumption controlled by it's OS power plan for each drivers. that's why they indirectly referenced to two mode options. Just try to switch to 'Battery Saving' power plan and activate battery mode when your notebook is plugged in. You'll witness the same lag/throttle.

    While it may be true when plugged in, the GPU acts independently of the OS power plan when on battery. Just apply the settings as you suggest and you'll see that it makes no difference if you're on battery. I'm just pointing out what I have found in practice ever since I've had this laptop from product launch.
