ON my little 14" x360 I5 10210u w 16gb ddr4 2400 and UHD 620 I get the best performance in Valley in power save mode and poorest in Ultimate mode. I went in made sure everything is maxed in both modes.I get 1633 at 40fps in Ultimate and 1800 at 43 fps in power save mode temps are at 60 c . why am I getting better performance in power save mode? Yes all updates are current..no system file integrity errors...resolution is 1280 X 720......

The laptop is thermal throttling in ultimate more than when using less juice in power save mode. Use system monitoring tools to find out what everything is clocking at with temps. Look up ultimate mode and you should understand better why this is the case.

Also I believe this laptop has the new adaptix tech which changes the power limits for more performance. That would affect perfomance for sure....
