    I dont want to blame your g17. Your Firestrike Score is realy good.

    I (my opinion) would order the A51m R2 as long as possible. Even today.

    Could you Run the Shadow of the Tombraider Bench If possible?

    You can bench using a free demo.

    What graphic settings is this and what's ur GPU OC like?
    The game seems to be extremely CPU dependant so you'll get much better performance im guessing.

    Highest Preset 1080p. The Benchmark is CPU and GPU demanding.

    Using Highest Preset 1080p settings, this is my result.
    As you can see i am 67% CPU bound so i don't think that's a really good benchmark for me :p
    GPU performance is surprisingly almost identical (+/- 5%)

    That's what I meant. Many modern games benefit from fast CPUs. For example, Battlefield or Warzone. You quickly reach the CPU limit and the GPU gets bored.

    I had the same with my X17. Top benchmark scores but slower in games and way slower with CPU limit than my A51mR2

    Warzone and Battlefield had CPU Limit even with QHD resolution ob my X17.
