Hi, thanks for yours replies. I see now that I have to carry out complex test for yours diagnostics. I had asus rog gaming center on my 502vs but it was some limited version (without fan control, only presets with various color, brighteness and something else for different gaming experience). I had to reinstall OS from clean bootable pendrive so I don't have gaming center anymore. Now I can't find any program to set fan boost in this laptop (gaming center is not availible on the ASUS's support website)- every program which I've tried have blocked fan control icon (for instance MSI afterburner). What I've noticed is that laptop during firestrike is more silent after undervolting so I suppose thah it works somehow and computer can keep low RPM of fans. Unfortunatelly driver allows to reach 80 degrees on CPU and GPU and keep this temepratures which I suppose throttle especially GPU. Of course, if I raise a load system RPM rise to even 3200 r/min and laptop is very loud. At this moment it is my supposition not supported with any tests. What is interesting that my 502 preffer to rise a little idle temeprature (to 50 degrees) in order to keep silent work... Somehow preference (maybe on bios) is shifted to silent work, no performance.
Damnit Eljefeuno, you just made me need to redo a bunch of benchmarks. XD (I'm only joking, I'm glad you made me notice it.) There is definitely a performance hit that is happening on my 7700hq as well when undervolted. I never noticed it in games (because it is only a few FPS), and in cinebench my scores actually went up when undervolted.
But I just reran my a few of the benchmarks without my undervolt of -0.14 mV and my scores have gone up by as much as 13%.
I guess I should have removed my UV before benchmarking, but I just never thought of it as something that could impact the numbers. 😛 I suppose I could fine tune my UV to see at what point the performance degradation, but for the purposes of these benchmarks I suppose it would be best if they were performed completely stock.
EDIT: The further I get into retesting, it looks like some games/benchmarks saw a hit others performed almost identically. Strange. lol I guess I must depend on how CPU intensive/how the program utilizes the CPU as to whether there is an impact. Either way, the fact that even one was impacted justifies retesting.
Also sorry for kinda hijacking this thread. Eljefeuno's post just got me thinking/made me retest and I found the results to be very interesting. 😛
Ok,i ve checked MSI afterburner during gaming and what is strange voltage is still adjusted to default curve - somehow the driver ignore my curve setting. Have I unlock something in MSI afterburner? I can set voltage/frequency points freely and save and upload presets but it is all.
Other question is why I have blocked possibility of turbo boost disable function in Intel Extreme Tuning Utility? I upload pictures to show what I have mean.
