PopOS 21.04 GPU "working" while getting the same performance as iGPU
I have a Thinkpad T14 with a core i7. I have that hooked up to a Razer Core X with a GTX 1070 inside it. I used egpu-switcher to set up my eGPU alongside setting NVIDIA graphics in the PopOS power settings. Everything seems to work at first glance, however I get the same performance as when I run games with just the iGPU. I saw that with PopOS you have to put :
__NV_PRIME_RENDER_OFFLOAD=1 __GLX_VENDOR_LIBRARY_NAME=nvidia %command%
inside the launch options to tell PopOS to use the eGPU. I have had no luck with this. I also tried using their built in "run with dedicated graphics" button on the desktop with the same result.
The real kicker is when I run nvidia-smi, it reports usage on the graphics card.
I've been struggling with this for hours and any help would be appreciated.
Here are the outputs of common commands:
lspci | grep VGA
