I have an Acer Swift 3 (SF-315-51G) laptop. In any game that I play when plugged in I get FPS drops. I installed MSI afterburner to find out why and found that the GPU reaches a temperature limit at 69 degrees. I don't have any issue when I play on battery the fps is locked at 60 with a little variance. But when plugged in with vsync on(or off) it gets huge fps drops. What should I do to prevent this?

Hello Atharv_Toraskar,

I would suggest changing your Processing Usage to around 50%. You need to go to Control Panel then go to Power Options and then switch it to High Performance. This will not limit the temperature of the GPU.

Hope this helps,
