So Ive decided to try out the Sager NP8952 with 1070 MaxQ, and so far its been nothing less than a nightmare with my FPS.
Nvidia 385.89 (rolled back from current 388, same issues listed below happen with every nvidia driver ive tried)
V-Sync: Off (prefer it on, have it turned on with my alienware and it works perfectly)
Frame Rate is 140+ with VSync off and 60 with VSync on, as it should be...UNTIL I OPEN THE ADVANCED OUTPUT. The second I open the advanced output I'm looking at a drop from 140+ FPS to 25-40FPS. If I have VSync ON, I go from 60FPS to 9-20FPS. This happens the second I open advanced output, even if I dont have a display connected!
I'm wondering if this is because of some MaxQ BS, or if there's something I'm missing here. I've matched all settings to my alienware and played around with almost every setting there is in Nvidia control panel. I've got nowhere left to go, except to return this laptop, which I dont want to do because I love its portability.
