Hello everybody ! I'm quite new to all the eGPU stuff so this may be really an easy fix, but still. Let's start off with my specs: MSI GP 70 2PE LEOPARD I7 4700 hq 2.4 GHz 8Go of Ram Nvidia GT 840M already build in eGPU : GTX 960 eGPU connected via mPCIE (tell me if there's something missing!) I have a little problem here with my eGPU setup ==> everything works fine (fans spin, can be controlled by MSI afterburner ...) But it seems like none of my games uses it . I had MSI Kombustor 3 with it's GPU monitoring running while gaming and realised that the usage of my eGPU was 0% . What I already tried so far: -unnistall all drivers thanks to DDU (Display Driver Unnistaller) and re-instal them. -I tried to deactivate my GT 840M to see if I could force my laptop to use the GTX 960, but ... it used the intel graphics instead. so, yeah. -tried to experiment around with the NVidia control pannel to force my laptop to use the eGPU The funny thing is, that my eGPU is running at 80-90% for ONE applicatio only: total war Attila 's launcher . Only the launcher, not the game itself. A friend of mine told me right click on a game icon and chose "which GPU i want to use" . But apparently, I don't have an option to select that. It maybe be a little confused, i'm sorry if it's the case, I'm not really good at it, plus english isn't my mother language.. So, if anyone could give me some thing to test out, i'd be very happy. oh and, of course, if there's some info missing, all you need to do is ask. Thanks! Matt
Hi guys, So with the help of svl7, I got my GTX770m successfully working in my MS16f2. Now, I'm experiencing a strange problem on two video-games specifically: Company of Heroes and Garry's Mod 13. I do not believe this is a hardware problem, because other games run fine. In these games, I am experiencing poor framerates (10-15 fps) because my GPU just isn't doing any work. With EVGA precision X, I monitor GPU load in game only to see that it floats around 5-15%. On other games such as World of Tanks, GPU usage floats around 80% and the game runs optimally. My CPU and Ram are not bottle-necking my system either, as they are functioning at normal load levels when the game is running. I have tried to adjust power settings to maximize performance and even overclock the GPU. It simply is not processing video, as if the game wasn't running at all. Does any one have an idea as to what is wrong? Thanks,
