Second Monitor Not Going Beyond 40FPS
Hello everyone, I hope you're all doing well in these difficult times. I have an issue and would really appreciate your input.
I recently installed my eGPU with a graphics card. It is connected to an external monitor via DisplayPort. When I play games, currently tried Halo Master Chief Collection, Overwatch, Wolfenstein II, and The Witcher III, my external monitor does not beyond 40FPS independently of the graphic settings I use. For some reason, in certain moments the FPS goes beyond 40 but no higher than 60. What could it be? Below you'll find the details of my setup.
-Razer Core X Chroma with an RTX 3070 MSi Gaming X Trio, connected to Laptop via ThunderBolt 3 Cable, not the one included in the Core because it is too short, so I'm using this one by Cable Matters, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01H5QF2TK/
-PX7 Prime, 1440p, 165Hz, connected to the GPU using a DisplayPort cable, https://www.amazon.com/Pixio-FreeSync-Certified-Warranty-Compatible/dp/B07WGXXV55
I would really appreciate any solutions you suggest, hope to hear from all of you soon!
@henry_sahdala, Did you try turning off G-Sync and make sure the refresh rates in Nvidia Control Panel are at 165 Hz?
@itsage, Hi! Thank you for your reply!
I just tried what you mentioned and still no change. Could it have something to do with me using the cable by Cable Matters instead of the one that comes with the Razer Core?
Hey, just sorted it, apparently, it had something to do with the Whisper Mode on GeForce Experience. I could not see it with the eGPU connected, but I unplugged everything, then turned off whisper mode, restarted the computer and everything worked! Thank you!
