    That's an old Clevo that routes all external display outputs to the iGPU, but it's not the case with MSI.

    So why they use iGPU/dGPU and optimus if it is so problematic? Only to longer the battery usage?

    If battery life is a concern, the only way to have both a dGPU and good battery life is to use a technology like optimus. Honestly, G-Sync is overrated in laptops. I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

    I wouldn't be super sad if I didn't have it. I actually turn it off for some games because it seems to cause problems.

    If I have gsync enabled, do I have to turn off vsync and tripple buffering in the Nvidia control panel?

    Also what about vsync, in game settings? Maybe dumb questions. But if I'm running with gsync on, I want toake sure I'm using it correctly.
