Poor fps on external monitor
I got a 144Hz QHD display to go with my 2060S Razer Core X setup but I'm getting worse performance on it than my laptop's internal display. Running the valley benchmark makes it seem like vsync is on but it's clearly disabled.
(internal vs external + settings)
AC Odessey and COD Warzone have both decreased in fps, now with sub-45 fps 1080p
The monitor is set to 144Hz via HDMI using the included cable and works well (judging by my cursor movement). All drivers should be up to date, no loose connections and the most recent Win 10. Can't think if theres some stupid setting I've changed or if something's faulty. Help would be greatly appreciated.
@arun_langley, I’m having the same issue.
Seeing benchmarks severely throttled when using the second screen over HDMI, even with the internal display disabled.
I have updated drivers, with the laptop’s integrated and dedicated GPUs disabled.
• Acer Triton 500 with RTX 2060 and integrated Intel 930
• Razer Core X with
• Asus GTX 1080 ti Turbo card
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Fully expect that I’m doing something simple incorrectly.
So I've managed to get much healthier looking benchmarks but I can't really explain why. It just seems to have settled in.
Currently playing AC Odessey 1440p high at anywhere from 30-50fps (CPU and eGPU peak at 83 degrees, CPU usually hovering around 72) I believe my system should be capable of running Warzone at >144Hz at 1080p low but I'm getting 70fps at best. Running displays in extended mode if that matters. I'll get a DP cable to see if that helps. Best of luck with your setup, shame I can't give better advice but let me know if you find any solutions yourself.
Warzone is an absolute mess on eGPUs, I don't know why. There is a whole thread on that here in the forums.
Did you run the benchmark above with your laptop screen turned off? In that case, your TB3 port probably is going into energy saving mode. You can disable it in the advanced energy management options. Turn off power saving for the USB and PCIE ports. That should vastly improve your eGPU performance.
