undervolting

HP Recommended
HP Omen 17
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hi team! Just need your advice about my plan. I've been gaming lately with HP Omen 17 gaming laptop and noticed when I'm playing COD (call of duty), the screen would freeze for few seconds and would drop the frame rate to 10-30 fps (normally would be 120-160 fps). I did some reading and found out that a lot of gaming laptop owners would undervolt their GPU to decrease the temp and enhance the performance of their gaming laptop. I also made some searches and noted that intel actually recommends undervolting the GPU and came across  "Intel Extreme Utility" for undervolting. As I was preparing to download, I noticed that the program was suitable for most intel core processors except the i7-10750 which is my laptop processor.

 

If I download this program, will this work to undervolt my laptop? And how safe is undervolting? Hope to hear from you guys soon. Many thanks!

@Pau2cute I'm afraid HP does not support or recommend undervolting, that said, I suggest you check with a local tech before making such changes at your own discretion, 

As for the low FPS or freezing issues, there are many ways to increase FPS and system performance:

  • Update the BIOS.

    For notebook PCs, go to HP Notebook PCs - Updating the BIOS

  • Update the graphics driver.

    Go to HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads, enter your PC model, then select the driver for your graphics card.

  • Most games allow you to change the graphics settings. Using a lower graphic quality often improves FPS.

  • Close any applications or programs that are not being used.

  • Turn on Game Mode. Game Mode is a new feature in Windows 10 Creators Update that improves gaming performance by limiting background processes and programs from using system resources while a game is running.

    1. Press the Windows key and G to open the Game bar.

    2. In the game bar, click Settings.

    3. Click the check box next to the game title to enable Game Mode for that game.

      Plug notebook PCs into an AC adapter to give the graphics card more power.
