Armorury Crate throttles 12th gen intel 12700H 1290H while gaming Asus Tuf F15 F17

Level 7
When in game or any 3D bench running the CPU will throttle to 23W without reaching temp limits,
this only happens when the battery is under 100%, as long as the battery is 100% CPU will use up
to 45-50W as necessary so it is not a power or thermal issue. One user even disconnected the battery and the limit went lower.
This is causing a significant drop in performance in high fps games and the laptop is not performing as advertised.

The issue goes away after uninstalling Armoury Crate but it's not a solution as you lose gpu boost and control over many things.

Is this a bug or a feature?
