    You can't. That software is worthless, you can OC the GPU with MSI Afterburner.

    You can't. Forget Gaming Center, it's bloatware. I use AB and Intel tuning utility.

    Hello All

    Has anyone actually tried to do some professional office work on the Zephyrus, like word/excel etc.

    I would appreciate feedback since I'm planning to purchase this laptop for work (word/excel) (im a cost engineer), gaming and connecting it to my 4k tv for 4k gaming.

    Thank you all for your advice.

    Why would a laptop with miniDP not able to handle 4K monitor?

    Of course you get less performance due to the max-Q 1080, but you should know that before buying the device.

    Hello

    Yesterday i did receive my Zephyrus GX501. I downloaded WoW, Sykrim and Diablo.

    Every Game that i played showed extreme ghosting! Means the picture tends to get blurry when moving. The image quality is also not sharp enough. I have set the highest possible resolution (FHD), but everything seems sluggish and slowly. G Sync is also enabled. I dont know what the problem is but it seems to be the response time of this laptop. Its bad.

    Is there a way to improve this and do you have the same exerpriences??

    thx

    Some people can see the "smearing" due to slower than needed response time of the display, others can't unless they see it side by side, with the "fast response" display looking "sharper".

    If you can see it, you're not going to be able to "fix it" @ 120 FPS, you'll need to drop refresh / FPS to the point where the response time of the display matches the frame rate.

    Try setting to 60hz / 60 FPS and see if the smearing goes away, and gives you a sharper image.

    IDK what the right transition point is, somewhere between 60hz and 120hz, if you do find it, please let us know. :)

    what are the optimal nvidia driver settings for this laptop? V Sync on off? etc.

    Exactly, I wonder about that too, how many people don't notice the most obvious things... it's an ongoing mystery. :)

    You might do best doing your own found settings, and posting them for others here to "see" ;)
