    Nope. Naka-balanced mode ako. Nagraramp up naman to 3.6 GHz pag full load but the i7-8550U is known to throttle early (down to 1.8 GHz).

    In the gaming world, it's almost exclusively desktop. Very few laptop gamers.

    Which browser are you using? Clear some cache perhaps. Try another browser? Internet protection? Play with some settings.

    Maybe because of the price difference bro. They also tend to last longer (maybe due to better cooling?) and provide better performance at a lower price.

    Definitely the price/performance ratio bro. Plus the upgradeability. Most gamers also prefer a bigger screen so that's another plus vs a smaller gaming laptop screen.

    Was a PC gamer back in the day, but it's an expensive hobby. There's still a pretty big desktop PC following til today though, so desktops will be here to stay.

    I've checked, I only use up about 20-30% GPU when sharing screen:



    Interestingly, Teams is quite the RAM hog - using even more RAM than Photoshop. Computer and Laptop Tech Thread

    Not a software issue. Have already checked everything you mentioned.

    I seem to have found the issue though - I'm constantly hitting the 100 deg C limit of my processor at max load so it throttles down and thus hampers performance:

    Solution: Undervolting via Throttlestop. 90mV undervolt on the processor and 30mV on the GPU. My temps dropped by an average of 10 degrees even at full load:

    Laptop now keeps at higher Turbo Boost for longer, even maintaining peak clock speed of 4 GHz.

    ^ Another reason why gamers prefer desktops: Thermals.
