    Because the answer is obvious, Laptops drop power to save battery when running on it alone and so drop the speed of whole machine. You can try to put Power Options to High performance but than battery will last much shorter time.

    Ok than, either run games with power plugged in or wait for better answer. Good luck with changing laws of physics.

    Hey there!

    I think I understand your problem. While you say that your PC is on 'High Performance' power plan with and without the charger, I still see one more possibility and that is that the High Performance power plan is configured to save battery when on battery. This can easily be fixed.


    All you need to do is to go to the advanced settings of the High Performance plan from power options and wherever possible, make the 'On battery' and 'Plugged in' settings same. This will result in similar performance with and without charger but will also cause your battery to drain super fast. If you are still unsure what I told you to do, I have posted some screenshots here.

    On a side note, I have a suggestion for you. When you are seeking help, you shouldnt sound like "thats no an answer !! i know that !!!!!". Instead, a polite tone like "I know that, thats not what I am looking for" should work better and you wont need to change the Laws of Physics.


    Cheers!

    There's a lot of other settings in Power Plans that enables one to make a PP even on an laptop to set to performance similar to a ordinary desktop computer but as he stated that he "knows that" I did not want to explain further. I'm not one that wants to change somebody's believes, being religiious or computer ones.
