Need help with new setup
Howdy. I am new to all of this as previously mentioned in my first post. I was hoping to get some feedback on an issue I'm having. My setup..
This laptop is brand new so there isn't really any support for it . I recieved the egpu the other day and installation was super smooth. Powering the laptop from the gaming box and mouse and keyboard plugged in as well.
I am not seeing anywhere near the perfomance I expected. With PUBG for example, on both internal and external monitors there are massive frame drops 1080p high to ultra runs great on my GTX 970M, but on the 2070 egpu im going from 60 down to 15 fps randomly. I have tried all kinds of settings and it still happens. When i have it set to 1080p ultra. I will get 60 when there is nothing going on, but the image doesn't look anywhere near as good as my 970m. It is unplayable with the random frame drops This happens on high settings, even with 720p. I haven't tried any other demanding titles yet. Battlefield 4 and Borderlands 2 are locked at 60 and look great, but those are older games. Also Aorus Gaming Engine will NOT open no matter what I try.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
what are you getting with AIDA64/CUDA benchmark to measure the data transfer?
Haven't used those before , I think I did it right.

Looks like your laptop has 2 thunderbolt connections running 2 lanes each. Usually stuttering is the result of a discrete GPU still being enabled that is the device host for the TB3 such as a 1060/1050 Ti/MX130/MX150 etc. All yours has is the highest end intel iGPU (UHD620/630 same GPU).
Try this firmware:
If that fails try disabling the TB3 port that isn't in use, but it's likely hardwired for 2-lanes each port.
You might need to do more than that,
Youre effectively getting 9.496 (Gbps) out of a potential 22 which is the maximum IIRC, you likely have one thunderbolt controller diverting into 2 ports. You need a way to kill bandwidth to the other port or maybe it's the firmware. I'm so tired at this point I can't think lol.
Edit- it does have 4-lane PCI-E, however your config is like this:
PCI Express Configurations ‡1x4, 2x2, 1x2+2x1 and 4x1
4x PCI-E direct through your CPU, 4x PCI-E for the NVMe SSD. Followed other small lanes for misc devices/ports. The MacBook Pro is the ultimate setup since it has the 8850 with a 24 (never mind it uses the HM370 which is 16 lanes too) lane setup and 2 TB3 controllers vs. 16 of your 8565U. This is why I think your ports are diverting traffic.
You should have no issues then with the H2D firmware, that's definitely 4x
My advice is to get throttlestop now and undervolt your CPU as much as possible to maintain good clocks as that 2070 is very high end
