Hello. I have an Asus laptop that have the ryzen 5 3550 h and the Rx 560, I am very disappointed with the Linux performance in that laptop for :
- Battery drain, in manjaro the battery is 4-6 hours. In Windows it is 10 hours
- No support for memory pens and my Samsung can't tether to the laptop , no idea why.
- The c states that Linux recognize are 3, poll, c1 and c2( is it 2 c states ?)
- The inalambric connection
I know that I can't blame on manjaro or the kernel, it is something usual for modern hardware
The making objective of that post is to know if there is more people having a ryzen laptop that has problems with battery or if they have compared with windows and windows battery was much better.
I want to know because I am planing to return the laptop and to buy something older, but if there is problems with battery drain in Linux with ryzen .. I am going to intel
For view the battery drain you can use powertop(minimum brightness) with the battery and no more apps and to view the c states recognized by the kernel cpupower idle-info
I have for example 5w of power consumption in idle in Windows and 12 W in Linux, how much watts of power usage has your laptops ? Have the support and battery improve with newer kernels ? thanks
