Have you checked your CPU and GPU temps while playing games?

This sounds like it could be related to thermal throttling, because of high temps.

Check your temps and make sure to try and stay below 90°C.

If your temps are higher than that, you might have to clean your air vents/intakes.


When you play on battery mode, your laptop will most likely not use all the available hardware potential.

Which will result in a bit cooler temps and therefore no throttling (or less of it).

But when you plug it in, it can use all of the hardware's power potential and therefore temps can rise higher.
