I don't know if this helps, but I found out that RTX 20xx cards will crash and freeze the system randomly unless you set the Power Management Mode in the NVidia CP to Prefer Maximum Performance. The default Optimal Power caused my system (Razer Blade 13 1650) to randomly freeze when the Core X was connected. I replaced 2 brand new RTX 2060 Super, reinstalled Windows and drivers countless times trying to troubleshoot this. Interesting thing is that if I used my old GTX Titan it worked fine, that's why I originally thought it was a defective GPU . I saw other people reporting similar issues that have been resolved by simply changing this setting. I have been almost a month crash free.

@maxrd, Whats your fps in games like COD warzone, BF ? Witcher ? Thinking about replacing my RX 5700 Xt with RTX 2070S

I have a Lenovo C940 + Razer X Core + GTX 2060 Super, and it presented the same problem, this was the definitive solution. Thanks for the info

@elclay, glad it worked for you as well. Remember to change the setting every time you update the Nvidia driver.

@lawless_heaven, mine is a 2060S. I don't play any of those games sorry. In MW regular MP I get around 90-120fps at 1080p all maxed out. The 2070S is generally faster than the 5700XT across the board.
