    Hey guys,


    I have been having issues with my graphics amplifier (1080TI Founders Edition) with my AW15R3 laptop. Using anything when plugged into the AGA will result in frame freezes (occurs once every 1-5mins) even when I'm just on the desktop.


    Have tried reinstalling everything (including windows) doesn't fix the problem. Beginning to think its either I have a faulty cable or the PSU isn't supplying a clean enough power to the EGPU. Please advise.

    I'll attach a 3D mark result screenshot of the problem so you guys can see what I'm talking about.


    Dips are when frame freeze happens

    Have you updated all related firmwares including BIOS?

    have you tried the GPU in a normal setup (Traditional Desktop)?

    What’s your 3dmark score and which test was it?
