Hi there,

so i bought an eGPU (Aorus GTX1070) and a Lenovo X1 Carbon. The setup went smoothly and i wanted to try my first game of league of legends... even if i got a constant 80fps there seems to be something like micro stutter. The fps dont drop but i can see that it does... even if the game dont show it and even if its just for 1ms or so.
Is this normal if i play on the internal screen or is this normal for an egpu?

Have you tried using V-Sync and Triple Buffering in the Nvidia Control Panel? Also, try using the frame limiter in RivaTuner (bundled with MSI Afterburner).

I can tell you it's not normal. You need to figure out of it's a CPU issue or something else. Side note, don't leave Cuda Z open when running a game hehe. Not saying you did but I did that once. oops

I also want to get the Aorus 1070, did you figure out what was the issue ? 

I guess updating the thunderbolt drivers could help, as far as what I have read so far, the thunderbolt driver from Intel is the most important detail to pay attention to. The second one is the thunderbolt cable, which could be damaged.
