Walmart OP Gaming Laptop Power Limit Issues in Real Games

1/0
 Share

YouTuber Bob Of All Trades is reporting that while the Walmart OP Gaming laptops perform well in benchmarks such as AIDA64, in CPU intensive games like Battlefield 5 the CPU is given a cripplingly low power limit (with the laptop operating relatively cool and not thermal throttling).  Bob has tried flashing multiple other vendors BIOSs on the laptop, but they all experience the same issue.

You're gonna want to reformat this to meet the guidelines:

 

That is very odd tho.

Poor Bob.

He probably should look in to undervolting it if he hasn't already. There is a reason why people undervolt these cpu's... because it makes a decent difference on a laptop by reducing the power draw as well as the temps.

So, the laptop is a great deal, is really thin, and has 144Hz and RGB, but has sh*t battery life and throttles the CPU like a b*tch due to power supply issues?

 

In other words, great specs with terrible quality control?

Would buy my G7 again, even with this OP option on the table. :P
