    I've just bought a brand new 8th generation GE63 with a FHD 120 hz panel.

    Testing several games, I was getting less FPS I expected so I decided to try to play through the DisplayPort to a external monitor with same resolution.
    I've obtained much more FPS with exactly the same options and checking that nVidia was used in both cases.

    I can't undestand why because the differences are huge.

    Any suggestion? Some related to the Intel GPU conected to the internal screen?

    It shouln't be that drastic tho. Try to reinstall NVIDIA and intel drivers then see how it goes.

    I've done a clean install twice without success.
    I'm testing an Aorus X5 V8 with same nVidia 1070 although a better CPU (i7-8850H) and I get almost three time FPS.

    Have you checked dragon center and set it to a different profile?
    Also have you set the NVIDIA panel to adaptive or high performance?

    Dragon panel is set to Turbo with highest overclock.
    NV Panel is set to nVidia High perfomance.
    What I've notice is that with the SAME settings, in the external monitor I get much more speed than in internal.

    What you’re seeing is probably the result of Optimus. When routing to the internal screen it goes through the Intel GPU before going to the display. When routing externally it probably bypasses the iGPU entirely and that is giving better performmace. Yet another reason why Optimus without a MUX is ****.

    Yes I though this could be the problem. What is a MUX? Is it what ASUS GM501 implemented?

    it still shouldnnt behave like this, hence I suggested installing the newest intel drivers aswell.

    All drivers are updated to the most recent version from Intel, nVidia... not from MSI
