Still just a browser ;)
So.... they will now also have MS Office rather than simply being expensive browsers?
Well, it does have better battery life in laptop mode, a much better screen and a better keyboard, though opening up the SB is nigh impossible...
The GPU is also running at 60% only so there's something holding it back.
You can check for youself - use Afterburner and see if your CPU is hitting 100% usage along any of the cores.
You see, here's where you're dead wrong. A 1080/Ti is easily bottlenecked by CPUs such as the 3770K or 2600K. Even more so by the 6700HQ which is...
In that case I'd probably lean towards CPU bottlenecking. After all, it's a 3.1GHz quad-core only.
Wait, is that a laptop or a desktop since there are no 1080 TI laptops and no 6700HQ desktops that I know of.
I was more-so talking about the 15" Surface Book.
The Yoga is generally what I'd purchase between the 2 but it also runs quite warm so you'll have to do some undervolting of the CPU and maybe a...
MSI GL/GP series are mediocre for the most part. If you're looking at a 1050 Ti, the Dell Inspiron 7567/7577 and Asus GL553 are far better options.
Of course not. The game is very demanding and your CPU, as said, is likely holding back the 1070 by a decent bit in that game.
Thermal throttling? CPU usage? CPU clockspeed?
My guess is CPU bottlenecking honestly. Most mobile CPUs can't really keep the 1070/1080 fed.
Only if the software can benefit from CUDA/OpenCL acceleration. Generally, an 8250U or 8550U is enough and there is no real need for a dGPU.
If you aren't going to use the GPU - all it does is add another potential point of failure to the system. Generally, Intel's iGPUs are horrible....
