    Precisely why I am looking at the Asus models. They have a toggle to disable optimus and use only the dGPU.

    I have a MSI GS65 w/ 2060RTX, this notebooks have Optimus and not GSYNC. But what happen if I use a external monitor via Mini Display Port? Can I use GSYNC in a compatible monitor?

    I will have the performance boost due to iGPU are off? With the integrated display iGPU are always ON, but with external monitor?

    I also reported different GPU performance on my M6700 when I was running dual internal lcd, one was a LVDS 1080p panel controlled by the intel HD4000 and the other one was an eDP 4k panel controlled by the P4000, so it's basically one an hybrid setup where one of the lcd is affected by "optimus", I didn't measure the performance gap but it was clear in Unigine superposition benchmark
