hi, try checking the refresh rate of your screen, 144 hz sure eats a lot of power than 60.
also, i tried this yesterday and it does improve mine, try disabling the Nahimic service in your processes, it also makes the stutter disappear too in mine
How can that be normal ? Mine is a Scar III with 144 Hz refresh rate. All the reviewers claim to be getting around 3-4 hours of battery backup after a full charge. And my laptop is a new one, bought just in July.
Would really appreciate your insight on this.
Those are best case scenarios. Minimum brightness, no kb backlight, idling, battery saver mode, no usb devices connected, hard drive turned off, no wifi, etc. I really doubt a gaming laptop with a small battery for its power would even come close to 3hrs of battery life.
Well, thanks for giving me some relief.
I would really appreciate if you can check out this link where the reviewer tells about the battery life :
He has mentioned this :
"As far as battery life is concerned, the ROG Strix Scar III G531GV doesn’t really do anything great here. In my usage of the laptop, which is mostly Google Chrome and Photoshop, with the occasional YouTube video, or a TV show on Netflix or Prime Video, the laptop lasted around 2.5 to 3 hours on a charge – now that’s fine, but it’s not the best and it can quickly get annoying, having to charge the laptop every few hours especially if you’re at work. "
I was getting worried because I barely get 1.5 hrs of backup on my laptop.
They usually test the battery life using pcmark. It's just a "synthetic battery benchmark" or whatever you wanna call it. I don't trust it. I would say 2hrs would be a more realistic number and I'm pretty sure you could squeeze 30 more minutes out of your battery by completely turning down the brightness, kb backlight, unplugging the mouse and all that.
