Question: Bootcamp performance issues

Hello,

I am having problems with the Bootcamp partition. When I run games and other tasks that require performance, it runs slower than when it is plugged in. This does not happen on the Mac operating system. I am not sure if it is just the program, or just a Windows 10 issue.

I already tried setting the performance value to high performance, it doesn't help. I am using an Intel Core i7-7567U, with 16GB ram.

MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, 4 TBT3), macOS High Sierra (10.13.4), Windows 10 is also installed

I don't really know how to use DPC, but I ran Minecraft and there was not really any difference. I ran Minecraft because it was one of the games that had that problem.

At 11 seconds, I plugged in the computer.

Your 13-in has an Intel GPU, unlike the 15-in models which can have dual GPUs. The AMD GPU in the newer Macs si fairly competent, but is still a mobile GPU, unlike a Desktop in iMac or iMac Pro. DPC does not show much variance, but has it in the 'yellow' zone during the test. If your performance is different on Battery vs. Power Adapter, check Power Options -> Advanced Settings and look at Processor Maximum and Minimum states.

I understood that my computer does not have a dedicated graphics card just like the 15-inch had, but I had another MBP that has an i5-3xxx core, and it did not have these performance issues. Also, I looked at the power plan settings, all I see are Balanced, as in the Windows 10 Fall Creators update, they removed all the power options and replaced it with a slider if you click on the battery tray icon.

The older i5 and newer i7 come with different GPUs, so performance may not be comparable for video. Do you still have the old Mac? If yes, run the DPC on it as well.


In some cases, the Intel HD4K on my 2012 Mac provides better performance compared to newer GPUs.

I didn't reinstall windows on my old laptop yet, it is really slow. But, I have re-installed windows 10 on my new laptop before I asked the community, there was no change, I still had that FPS issue. In this version of Windows 10, it has a slider for the power options. The slider is set to "Better Performance" both on battery and plugged in. The issue is that for some reason, the processor doesn't utilize or uses less "Speed" when on battery. Also, before the fall creators update, there were 3 power options. Both were set to "balanced" when my laptop was plugged in and on battery.
