    When I unplug the power cord I notice a huge performance decrease even in high performance mode. I even adjusted the advanced settings. I want to be able to play games at full speed even if it reduces battery life.

    Change the power settings for the processor to run @ full speed even on battery life.

    By default it is likely to be underclocked when on battery.

    Which computer do you have? For my tx2000, there are powersaving options in the BIOS, too.

    Is there a special bios with settings that can be adjusted? I keep reading about that in various threads but those options are never in my bios screen (where there's pretty much only an option to disable the AMD virtualization technology).

    I have the tx2500z and it doesn't make sense that plugging it in makes such a huge difference.
