While playing BF5 on Ultra preset, I barely get 40-50 fps on average. Whereas this reviewer ( https://techgage.com/article/nvidia-geforce-2060-2070-super-review/2/ ) gets a solid 80 fps, granted he has an i9 9900k and DDR4-3400, but I'd think those would have less of an effect.
Also, I thought the loss on TB3 would be around 15%, and even less on higher resolutions. Why does it seem like I'm losing almost 40%?
Here is my experience captured I had:
Could it be my CPU is thermal throttling? Is BF5 CPU heavy? CPU utilization seems to hover at around 50% though.
Yes your laptop CPU is being thermally throttled.
(Plus the faster RAM and desktop i9 do make a difference)
Shadow of the Tomber Raider and Deus EX absolutely hate TB3.0 eGPUs. The drop is about 40% there, but that's an extreme case. I would check your PCH temperature and report back. Your CPU dropping to 3.5ghz means nothing
