So i bought an Acer Nitro 5 and since its GPU is only a 1050 ti, I want to get the best performance for every game.
I noticed that it loses in game performance when it is unplugged however, when plugged, I get noticeable changes in the fps.
I just want to know if I should keep it plugged with the battery at 100% to get the best performance because I read online that it's actually okay to have a laptop plugged in at 100%.
Should I keep it plugged it at 100% or should I just keep recharging? What bums me though is that it wont perform as well compared when it's plugged in.

The simple way to put it:
  • Plugged in = Best performance
  • Unplugged = Power saving performance
You will always receive better gaming or all-around performance when the laptop is plugged in. When unplugged, the laptop automatically tries to reserve/save power by reducing performance from high-performance hardware like the processor and graphics card.

Overall, keep the charger plugged in when gaming.

Hope that helps.
