    You need to connect external screen HDMI or DP or Type C to get full performance of the card in AGA.
    What's the baseline result you're expecting from CUDA-z?

    Fantastic, this is super helpful. It might be something goofy from mixing Touring with Pascal/Volta I suppose.

    If you have a moment to try the 1080, I would be curious to see if you get the same result. I would also love to know the approach you took to installing drivers. Before connecting the AGA I have been rebooting into safe mode, using DDU to wipe everything, shutting down and connecting the AGA, and then reinstalling drivers.

    I have a 144hz, 32" 1440p display connected to the AGA and have been disabling the internal display. CUDA-Z should be closer to 3000 MiB/s and full duplex like @tobyg which is near the practical limit of a PCIe 3.0 4x connection in the AWA. The imbalance between my host to device scores and device to host scores have me puzzled.

    I mean you said ACC oc profiles put 3 bin lower clocks on all cores. Only 5.0GHz clock speed up to 6 cores. Or you can finally put real 5.0GHz OC with the app? This due the performance fan profile?

    Thanks for the update! This makes me feel better, I wouldn’t be using both screens when hooked up to my external monitor.

    Yeah, but still weird. I wonder if there is someone else with the same issue.
    I somehow think, that this is related to the fact that there are 2 different type of g-sync monitors on one system with different refresh rates. not sure though.

    Okay will try ATTO soon. I have it to RAID, but from what I heard it shouldn't matter since this is a NVMe drive. Even in BIOS it shows as NVMe not RAID or AHCI. I do have it set to RAID still, I might have to try the trick to switch to AHCI.

    Magician also doesn't see the drive properly.
    I did wait til the end. Looks like it might be the stupid RAID issue which is unfortunate.
    Sorry you two but I have owned Clevo P870DM3, P870DM, P570WM, all which are desktop replacements and they ran what the power supply allowed. AW should really fix this as this is stupid. 90% of Area-51M for gaming purposes should work fine with a single 330w AC adapter. This is clearly an artificial limit and I won't stand for this.

    We should be fighting these limits not supporting them.....just like the 2400mhz limit that was supposed to be "fixed" with an update...
    I have an AGA but no GPU LOL
    Smart idea, will try in a bit
    Ummmm......what?

    has anyone tried swapping out the 180W for a 240W. Is it worth it to even try?
