Performance increase 970m - 1070
I've a MSI gs60 6QE
I7 6700hq, 16go ram, 970m & TB3
My 970m was enough until I recently with pubg
I would like to buy the Aorus gaming box with a 1070. It's not easy to find in France, and it cost 700€
I already saw some benchmark. The performances will be -15 / -25% under a 1070 desktop depending witch screen I use
But how much performance increase I'll get from my 970m with my laptop screen and external screen?
This is what you get theoretically...
Everything else is something noone can tell, because it depends on your laptop and adapater + settings.
I think your MSI laptop only lets TB3 operate at 10 gbps, which is essentially USB 3.1 speeds, which probably means the TB3 runs through a PCH instead of being piped directly to the processor. This is not ideal for EGPUs. True TB3 goes up to 40 gbps. You need to confirm this or it’ll be a huge waste of money for you.
Also, you will get better performance using an external display. You can expect a 10-15% drop in performance if you use the internal display.
Make that 20gbps. Alpine Ridge LP, PCIe 3.0 x2.
