Battery throttle

RogBo
Level 7
After having updated to BIOS 208 I was still experiencing some strange throttling (can't tell by looking at the task mmanager since it easily reached 3 GHz), I have been at 209 for some time now and am still experiencing it. Sound crackles/vido shutters because it can't keep up, games have huge delays, the computer sometimes hangs when performing tasks such as playing music while browsing on the internet.

All of this only happens in battery mode, power4gear uninstalled, battery plan set to high performance with minimum processor speed set to 100%.

The battery cannot supply enough power to the system for maximum performance. It's the nature of mobile computing. Gaming laptops/workstations require the AC adapter for demanding load.

We customize Asus, MSI, and Clevo laptops!

I have read like every single thread about the issue here, I cannot even properly play simple games such as NBA 2K14 without experiencing insane lagg.

You can't tell me this is because of the laptop not getting enough power. Like really, the cracppy laptop I had before this one was capable of playing 1080P movies without any stuttering/audio cracking just fine. If people claim to be capable of playing call of duty in battery mode without any lag then something must be wrong on my end. I can't even properly play some music while using Skype or the audio will start cracking.

I have tried some other heavy games such as Call of duty ghosts myself, and it just looks like a powerpoint slideshow when trying to play it in battery mode.

Can you confirm you are also getting cracky audio when playing videos like youtube 480P?

First and foremost please don't disregard the community read what everyone has been saying in multiple threads, these laptops are not meant to game on battery, it is that simple.

Both Prostar and NEPC which are both resellers have stated the same. If you guys don't take it from people who customize and sell the laptops for a living, I don't know what to tell you..


On a side note, I can tell you I had an issue on AC power with throttling. It would only occur though in one game which was StarCraft II. SC2 multiplayer would lag horrendously and complain to our party that my PC was slowing everyone down. Keep in mind I have a co-worker who has the EXACT same G750JH configuration I have and he did not have this problem, neither of us were the host of the game.

I tried turning down graphic settings, closing all tasts in the background, ect. All to no avail. The only difference between me and my co-worker was I had installed StarCraft in the default location on C drive, he had his installed on D. I read only one similar case where it said installing Starcraft II on an SSD can cause slow downs. So I removed Starcraft completely and redownloaded the 16GB or whatever it is completely on the new location on D, still same slow down / throttling. The GPU would throttle per Asus GPU Tweaker logs. It would go down to 120Mhz or something like that on the core.

So I went ahead and did a complete wipe. I wiped my OS and restarted from scratch. This solved the problem. I have no idea what was on my drive that caused ONLY SC2 to throttle but it was. Now it does not.

I only mention this because it sounds like your system has other issues as well. If you cant play youtube 480p videos on battery then there IS an issue somewhere. As long as you aren't hammering the volume and making the speakers crackle due to distortion, then I would possibly do a complete wipe in your case. You should be able to do just about anything but game on battery, as long as it doesn't use the discrete GPU heavily.
(ROG has simply become too expensive compared to the competition with same specs... 😞 )
