Citra run slow when laptop is not plugged in

Hi, i’m playing rune factory 4 in citra. when i play on battery, the game speed and fps dropped and it doesn’t run as smooth when i plugged my laptop. the speed can drop to 40-60% and fps drop around 30-40, on some parts of the game it’ll run normally (inside building/room, but it’ll go slower when im outside). my laptop is kinda new, so i think there’s no problem with memory (RAM 8GB). what can i do to improve the speed/fps when i play on battery?

Go to Nvidia Control Panel and in Manage 3D settings set Power management mode to Prefer maximum performance. If you have GeForce Experience installed turn off Battery Boost:

thank you, i already have the battery boost turned off, changed the 3d setting and it runs smoother now
