Is power limited throttling normal in a laptop?

 Share

I’ve got an Asus FX504 with the 8750H cpu and 1060 GTX. It constantly power limited throttles and I’m new to laptops and wondering if it’s normal or should I request a repair? Thanks

very normal. if current to too high, voltage will drop below stable.

What's the power brick's rating?

 

ASUS's website says it ships with a 120W brick, though it doesn't mention the GPU is configurable up to a GTX 1060. If you have that, then I don't think it's enough. My Dell Inspiron 15 7567 came with a 180W brick and its power draw is expected to be more or less the same as your laptop's.

I checked throttle stop and Intel XTU and it flashes up power limited throttle. I noticed online people are complain about the throttle issues. I was just concerned that I might of bought a lemon of a laptop as people are complaining and saying the cooling is inadequate that’s why it throttles and can’t be overclocked as it will then thermal throttle. Thanks

First, 8750H will power throttle in medium-heavy load. Even with undervolting, it will still power throttle in heavy load.

 

Second, FX504 is well-known for its bad cooling. That's why Asus decided to put a low PL1 limit - 25W to compensate this. There is also a slight chance that it has undersized charger - 120W.

So is this grounds to get a return or is it normal for a powerful laptop of this size? Thanks

i would say poor purchase choice. considering the hardware, you should have known better.
