Hi everyone!

 

I have a Dell XPS 13 (9360) with the i5-8250u CPU and 8GB of RAM. I know that this XPS only has two PCIe lanes connected to the Thunderbolt 3 connector.

Now I have the possibility of getting a Aorus Gaming Box 1070 for a very good price, but I only want to use it when I travel, which means there is no monitor. Can I still get decent FPS when using the internal screen? I only found people who used an external monitor with this laptop.

 

Thanks!

This means I can expect the fps from the internal/external benchmark right? Or maybe a bit better because I have the 4c/8t CPU?

Gaming benchmarks would be interesting but I haven't found any.

Yeah, benchmarks should be similar.

So it’s worth trying the titles in your library.  

Of course, FPS varies a lot from game to game. Even from scene to scene.
