LOL NOBODY ANSWER TO THIS THREAD, BUT DO NOT DELETE IT SO PEOPLE CAN REALISE THIS.

Apparently, Nvidia laptops include some power boost options, so when you disconnect the laptop from the electricity, performance will drop significantly in order to save battery. This will include general OS performance as well as games FPS. Fixed by connecting the laptop lmao.

Yes, in general and usually in battery mode the laptop CPUs lower the frequency and probably others parameters to save energy...

Its not intel but Nvidia battery boost slowing FPS to 30. You can uninstall Geforce experience app to remove it. Otherwise, use nvidia inspector to disable battery boost. Disable Acer update or similar. Keep only Predator Sense on startup and remove others like Sound driver. Use DPC Latency checker app to check system responsiveness. Also, any other startup programs?
EDIT: One more thing, is your SSD Toshiba perhaps? See if its throttling because its known case.

Also check what power option you have on windows. Use balanced or high performance according to your needs.
The realtek one you "need it"(you can disable and it changes nothing. you just miss the changing audio thingy from taskbar). The nvidia crap you can uninstall and it's called nvidia hd audio driver.

NVIDIA HD audio control audio via HDMI so don't uninstall because no intel hd gfx on your model.
And on a laptop disable Nvidia telemetry, it will drain your battery faster if you don't disable it.
Yes disable it in services.msc and in their NV control panel as well by navigating to Help > Uncheck Allow Experience improvement program.
You can remove Skype from startup since loading time in SSD almost zero or instantaneous. Don't like IOBIT, on a high end PC not needed actually, I label it as a bloat. As an alternative I use CCleaner and BleachBit with Winapp2 which are faster and better.

You solved your own problem, good for you. :)
Definitely laptop will try to conserve energy while on battery power, but 3 sec to open explorer is still too much (specially on that beast of a cpu), even on battery power. PS windows doesn't use dedicated gpu while you are not gaming unless you specifically set it that way (provided there is an integrated gpu available).
I find clean installing windows without any OEM crapware provides biggest speed boost even on brand new laptops.
