    This is a follow-up from the thread
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/create-thread-e7440-geforce-gtx-750-ti-great-success.822497

    So, I was happy with the Gainward 750 Ti but it struggled a bit with Fallout 4 at 1080p medium settings - plus the fan was very loud. I considered a 1060, which seemed like better overall value but I found a reasonably priced 1050 Ti and purchased it. I bought a Zotac 1050 Ti Mini. Results were an improvement - not a huge increase but enough for now.

    Specs are otherwise identical to the previous thread.

    Superposition Benchmark

    1080p Medium - 5001 (Up to 5848 could be expected in desktop)

    1080p High - 3600 (Up to 3900 could be expected in desktop)

    720p Low - 12425 (Up to 16000 could be expected in desktop)

    Screenshot (4).png

    Time Spy - 1987 (Up to 2536 could be expected in desktop)

    Firestrike - 5271 (6820 would usually be expected)

    Sky Diver 1080p - 12868 (Up to 19040 could be expected in desktop)

    Heaven Ultra/Extreme - 33FPS, Score: 831 (36.8 FPS and 926 can be seen on desktop systems)

    Screenshot (9).png

    Cinebench - 74 FPS

    I should add that I have still been unable to activate Optimus, so the results are lower than expected. The expected desktop scores are based upon high-power desktops and are an unfair comparison but give an idea of the performance loss via mPCIe.
