Only 48fps with Gtx 970 on Internal Screen, help!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I've made this post to gather as much information of the problem I'm facing with my Gtx 970 egpu setup, so if anyone is suffering something similar it would be really helpful if you could share your setup too.

My Lenovo y510p Setup:

Cpu: intel i7-4700MQ

8gb of ram

Windows 8.1

Bplus PE4C v3.0 adapter mPCIe

Gpu: MSI Gtx 970 (4gd5 oc)

Evga 500 power supply

 

My setup is working find without errors but whats bothering me is that when I'm using Internal Screen to play my fps won't go beyond 48-49fps no matter how old the game is DX9, DX10-11.

I've tried to lower graphic settings, resolution, disable full-screen on all the games and but still stuck at 48fps. I know I should get lower performance because of internal screen but fps shouldn't be limited to 48?

What I've tried but non helped :

Installing different drivers.

Overcloking gpu.

Changing nvidia global settings, like vsync, etc..

 

 

Share Your experience if you have similar behavior on your egpu.

 

Edit. Found Someone http://www.owen-lu.com/egpu/ with same behavior with gtx970 but using ExpressCard connection.

Is that value close to the refresh rate of your display? Like 49-50Hz?

My laptop screen has a 60hz refresh rate, and vsync won't help at all.

PD. I think it has to be something with my gpu, gtx 970.

Ok, I asked because I was limited to 60fps when using the internal display of my MacBook in the past.

Are you saying that you're using an Optimus setup that only has the internal screen, and that it's limited to 48FPS,

or are you saying that you have an external screen, but are rendering to the internal screen while capped to 48FPS?

1. is it limited on an external monitor?

2. have a game running in the background on the internal screen and then load up GPU-Z. Go to the sensors tab and look at the performance cap graph. Does that show any thing bottlenecking the performance?

1. No, it's unlimited. Just on internal has the limit.

2.

      Hi there guys,
       
      I've been looking into getting a new GPU for my laptop (4-lane PCI-e) and enclosure (HP Omen Enclosure) but I cannot decided between the RX 5700 XT and the RTX 2070 (non SUPER).
       
      I did some price to performance calculations (higher is better) with some of the best prices I can currently get in the UK.
       

       
      The RX 5700 XT does perform better and is cheaper than the RTX 2070 (Although the 2070 does come with 2 games) but my main concern is drivers and from what I've heard NVIDIA cards work a lot better with eGPUs than AMD.
       
      If anyone has experience using both red & green or if anyone else has any other input i'd love to hear your experiences and input.
       
      Thanks.

      Hi guys, bit of a rookie to the whole EGPU scene. Currently I have:
       
      - MacBook Pro 2015 13inch (3.1GHz Core i7 16GB RAM)
      - Razer X Core 
      - Apple TB3 to TB2 Adapter
      -  TB2 Cable (Cable Matters)
      - 23inch AOC External Monitor
       
      I am wonder about what graphics card to get to run X-Plane11 with high graphic settings?
      I have purgewrangler set up and ready to use with an AMD graphics card, but am also open to the idea of an Nvidia graphics card.
      Any advice appreciated. I did not buy a Windows PC as I need a Mac for various other things and wanted an all-in-one laptop.

      The GPU works, The PSU works, The system works. [individually they all do work]
       
      The system works perfectly fine without the WLAN card.
       
      When i put the system to sleep and hotswap the mPCIe riser and WLAN press something on the keyboard.. Restarts.
      Will shutdown in roughly 27 seconds for those 27 seconds it works just fine like how it normally would on external monitor.
       
      When i shut it down and plug the riser and switch it on, same story. 27 seconds.
       
      I don't even see a error. I get to login screen directly. I used DDU already.
       
      I timed it. no matter what i do if i use the eGPU, External monitor it restarts instead of pause-play. I have 27 seconds.
       
      Need help!

      Has any company out there launched a laptop with an external MXM port? 
       
      Just curious since with the boom in the gaming laptop market and some companies launching eGPU thunderbolt enclosures, isnt the MXM faster?
       
      Is it because of licensing issues? or hardware problems?
