I am having an issue with my NVIDIA 870M graphics card. When I play games, it caps the framerate to 30FPS when running on battery power, even playing on both high and low graphics settings.
When I switch to Intel graphics (in the Nvidia Control Panel), it runs very well on battery power, 50FPS on lowest settings (on the Intel HD Graphics), while with NVIDIA it is 30FPS. I need my high performence NVIDIA card to run at a high framerate when running on battery life. This applies to all games that run on NVIDIA.
List of games this applies too (basically all the games I have):
- CounterStrike: GO
- League of Legends
- Tribes Adcend
What I have tried so far (all failed):
- Disabling VSync
Clicking on the “Battery” icon in the tray -> more power options -> change plan settings -> Change advanced power settings -> Intel Graphics settings
Going to the “Nvidia Control Panel” and looking for powersaving options, none there.
