Hello Acer community, I have recently bought an Acer Predator Triton 300, as I wanted to get a new good performance laptop, for my studying. I bought a gamer laptop as my store had sales on these laptops and they were cheaper than normal Ultra books laptops. I only use my laptop for some mathematical software, watching movies, PDF editor, etc.
I like the Laptop itself, the design, Windows 11, etc, and SSD file transfer speed. But I am sadly dissatisfied with the performance when the laptop is running on battery without power. I am mostly talking about CPU performance. The GPU for gaming is not that important for me, as I do not game.
So the thing is: when the laptop is plugged into power, it works so fast, so smooth, like liquid. Without any lag or delays. Apps are opening up "instantly" and fast, like the snap of fingers. This is how I expect a 1700 dollars laptop to work all the time. And the "Predator Sense" is only set to "normal" not even high settings.
The issue is: Once I take of the power and the laptop runs on battery it feels like the performance is degraded by as much as 60%. There are lags/delays when opening apps, they are opening slower. Things are not going smoothly, everything works slower. It feels like the CPU is limited drastically and properly is! In my opinion, this is not good enough: that you advertise with the latest technology laptop, with new 11. Gen 8 core CPU, which cannot even be utilized fully as the laptop is limited when running on battery.
I have set the windows battery sitting "To highest performance" and the predator sense does not allow me to set a higher sitting because it's not plugged into power an it still works slowly. It is totally fair and understandable that playing games will not have the same performance on battery.
But seriously just opening Software and opening some things on the computer are delayed? This is not good enough.
I hope there is a way to override it. I would like to unlock the CPU limitation when running on the battery, I guess there must be something I can do. Maybe I change the settings in the BIOS or something?
All my drivers are updated. All the latest windows updates are installed
I see forward to getting support for this.
