    I guess I'll just have to settle for playing on Balanced Mode with the 35w/45w CPU power limit. Doesn't matter since I'm GPU bound when playing on 1440p anyways.

    Extra 10w on the GPU is worth more FPS than 20w on the CPU.

    I get that. Makes sense . Right now im having a tough time with Red Dead Redemption running properly and if it turns out I have to have the new Nvidia drivers then ill upgrade and make the sacrifice for a slightly lower cpu speed

    A little more info for the few people who would care..

    Using the Intel graphics in optimus mode, and using CRU custom resolution utility, the screen can be set as high as 77hz. ( at least on my screen)
    The response rate is already so fast for a 4K screen that even at 60hz its not that bad to look at. 77hz is pretty smooth without much judder watching movies...which you can only watch netflix in 4k if you use optimus.

    Maybe you can elaborate here? I'm running this new RB17 Pro RTX2060 and noticed that its capping out at 90w ...

    I dont know what the power limit is for the 2060. We were talking about the 2080

    It feels as though they should all be at 100w for continuity but I did notice you mentioned installing official drivers over the default ones which I have done.

    I wrote a post a little ways back about that.
    If you update the drivers then it seems to only do 100watt in Auto mode not custom mode in synapse.

    You may use HWiNFO64 to check it, select sensors only and several pieces of information will load, close to the bottom you will find GPU1, the number you are looking for is GPU Power. In case you need additional details there are useful videos on youtube.

    You are right, it caps at 100W in Auto. I tested my laptop (early 2019, 2080 MQ) using the driver released early February with 2 games, The Witcher 3 and Arkham Knight and the results were a bit confusing to me.

    Two profiles were used, AUTO and Custom with medium CPU and high GPU. I made the test in a hurry, please don't take it as conclusive

    TW3 (Walking around Novigrad):
    AUTO:
    Power consumption: 102W average
    FPS: 99 average
    GPU memory: 6000MHZ average
    Custom:
    Power consumption: 89W average
    FPS: 105 average
    GPU memory: 6259MHZ average

    BAK (Built in benchmark):
    AUTO:
    Power consumption: 101W average
    FPS: 98 average
    GPU memory: 6035MHZ average
    Custom:
    Power consumption: 89W average
    FPS: 105 average
    GPU memory: 6306MHZ average
