    I've seen posts that choosing the default DELL power plan solves performcane on battery problem. Can someone try this? I don't have this laptop but I'm planning to get the new version.

    Some people also mentioned GPU throttling above 74 C instead of 78 C if BIOS above 1.3 is used. Can someone with newer BIOS test this?

    I purchased this laptop around July of last year, and I've installed this panel today.

    https://www.amazon.com/Screen-Display-N156HHE-GA1-7RG-078US-Leopard/dp/B07CWSWX4Q

    The colors are so much better and the brightness is excellent! All function keys can be utilized too. I do not regret this upgrade one bit!

    Only complaint that I have is that I can't figure out why my games aren't pushing past 60fps when I am clearly running 120hz. Does anyone know if the GTX 1060 Max-Q design is limiting fps?

    If anyone has experienced this, help would be greatly appreciated!

    Yes.
    Depending on the game you won’t see over 120FPS in most modern games without cranking the details down or lowering resolution.

    That's so weird, because I have my FPS set to cap at 120fps in game, vsync off, and it caps off at a steady 60fps no matter what my the graphic settings are. I'd think I could get over 60fps in Overwatch on low settings.

    Do you have the power plan set to max performance in the Nvidia control panel?

    I figured it out. Under the 3D settings I set it to Let the 3D application decide my settings. Now I am able to adjust my fps cap. Thanks for the support IKAS V.

    My laptop is a Dell G7 15, i7-8750h, gtx 1060 gddr5 6gb, 16gb ram. I have an throttling problem (i think) when it comes to gaming. I have throttle stop installed and when i play the game (Destiny 2) it works fine at a locked 60fps due to the 60hz screen (i hate screen tear so i locked the fps to 60). After some time the frames will drop significantly to around the 30 frames and rocket back up to a stable 60. Give it more time and it makes crazy dips to 2 frames per second, making the game unplayable and its at the lowest possible graphics settings too. When this happened i made sure to have CPUID monitor up to check out what was happening. My CPU is usually hovering around 3889Mhz but when i checked it when my game was hitting 2 fps, the cpu across all cores was around 800Mhz. Also, this showed up in throttle stop and i have no idea what any of it means (Imgur link to picture: https://imgur.com/00robrJ ). The PROCHOT 98 degrees also keeps re enabling itself when i un check mark it. I also linked the images of my throttlestop settings below. Im not sure what half of the settings really do either even after re reading the throttlestop guide several times. If anyone can help me, please do!!

    Are you playing on AC or battery? My laptop will only throttle while on battery. I noticed your core temps aren't getting too high either, because mine usually gets into the 90s while playing games.
