    cosmicmango's testing on the previous page shows that this is a simple issue to fix. A single bit in the CPU controls whether this laptop throttles while on battery power. This was done deliberately to protect the battery. If Asus wrote a new bios they could turn off this throttling. That's not going to happen unless users start returning their G750 laptops because they can not run at the advertised speed while on battery power.

    Here's the guy that originally used ThrottleStop to disable BD PROCHOT on his G750.

    His website shows how he has ThrottleStop setup and he might be able to tell you how his battery is holding up.

    I sure hope they do that... The battery is not that weak, not any worse than on G75VX...

    Ok. I have tested Left For Dead 2 on battery power with throttlestep. I can get 15 fps on maximum settings. Better than 2 fps

    I don't wanna do this if it's not guaranteed to be safe

    I'd be cool with this...

    If CPU throttling was disclosed as a feature in their marketing literature for the G750s. I could have made an informed decision about whether to get a G750 or an MSI or whatever, but sadly it was not. That really doesn't sit well with me. Did ASUS really think no one would notice this?

    Somewhere in the manual states that the laptop is not intended to be plugged in all the time. Given this throttling issue, you can't really game or edit videos on this laptop UNLESS it's plugged in. Unplugged it's really only good for web browsing, email, etc. Not what I expected, and certainly not how this product was marketed...

    Plugged in it's a great machine (and with the addition of an SSD, 24GB RAM, 1GB SATA 6Gb data drive), it really does hum right along doing what I need it to do...

    On battery? Whole nother story.

    I'm looking for a BIOS update (and perhaps a spare battery) for ASUS to make this right...

    Pretty much only e-mail and Word / light Excel works. Heavier browsing suffers, not even talking about software development or database work. Hell, even PowerPoint can be really slow, lol. I had to return my laptop while I still could. If this gets fixed I will buy one again.

    Do we know if ASUS is aware of this? I mean that people have issue with their latest machine and the way how processor is set up?
    I am just curious if they are doing something about it or just letting people return their lap tops?
