Very weird issue i'm having

I've ran many test:

  1. Forza Horizon 4
  2. Battlefield 1
  3. 3D Mark 

All games/benchmark shows 3d performance close to the onboard 1050 Ti card and not the connected egpu 1080 gaming box from Gigabyte. It was working just fine a week ago with my previous laptop XPS 9560

I've reloaded drivers, updated all bios/firmware and drivers to the latest using Dell Update tool. Yet same problem, very average performance.

Something weird i noticed is that the task manager doesnt show any 3D usage graph while in game but does while on the desktop under the performance tab in task manager. I have already set the global setting to the nvidia processor and have disabled the 1050 in device manager with no luck 🙁

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts
