Grid 3 running slow

If you have experienced Grid 3 running slower than usual, it could be to do with a new feature in Windows 10 that automatically enters a device into Power saver mode when the battery reaches 20% or below.

We do not recommend Power saver mode as it can reduce the performance of your device and the speed of Grid 3.

To change this feature, follow the steps below:

First check your default power plan is set to Balanced (recommended) by right clicking on the battery icon in the bottom right corner of your screen and selecting Power Options.

Now check your Battery saver settings:

  • Click on Windows Start Menu and select Settings
  • Select System and then Battery

Under Battery saver, make sure Turn battery saver on automatically if my battery falls below:  is unselected


Finally you may find this article helpful which details  all our recommended power settings for optimum performance.
