[Blade 15 Mid 2019-base] Low GPU & CPU utilization in Elden Ring - bad performance

Hi. In the imgur album both CPU and GPU show low utilization. Power/clocks also seem adequate.

A video with similar spec, same area, same resolution - stable 60 fps.


FPS jumps 40-55, making input and overall experience bad. Changing settings and resolution doesn't do anything, even lowest preset + 800x600.

Things I did so far:

-set app to use eGPU in nvidia control panel
-set app to use eGPU in system/display/graphics
-set power mode to "best performance"
-test GPU with MSI Kombustor, it can reach 100% utilization

Razer Blade 15 Mid 2019-base
RTX 2060
i7 9750H
16gb ram
512.77 driver
Windows 11 Home 10.0.22000

Note, I am running my laptop without battery (it was swollen so I removed it).

Someone suggested this might be caused by the power limit (doesn't seem to go higher than 80w). Power sliders are disabled in msi afterburner (by bios?).

I will create a case and forward this to our RMA Team for a replacement battery request. PM me the serial number of your laptop so I can validate its model specifications and help me start a case. I will lock this thread to curb our conversation privately.
