Hi All,

Hopefully someone can help me.

I'm playing Valheim and have noticed frequent frame drops so have been watching the performance on TM and have noticed that during the frame drop the CPU drops from an average 3.8ghz to 1.0ghz and the GPU increases in utilisation from an average of 52% to 72+%.

I'm not running a decent setup, but just enough for some games.

Intel i5-8300H @ 2.3GHz (quad core I believe)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050

It's a store-bought HP 'Gaming Laptop' (quote marks)

Edit:

Also noticed where my laptop has been constantly plugged in for the last year (working from home), the battery is basically dead so has to remain plugged in, the game runs fine when the battery icon shows it is charging, however I've noticed when the battery icon doesn't say charging (even though it's plugged in) the game framerate drops, game returns to normal when the icon shows charging again. Odd.
