    Getting slightly lower RW speeds than Samsung advertised for 960EVO 1TB but deviation is very little.

    I've found Intel HDG running 3 external displays (both ports occupied) with no 1060 influence, and all of the displays are visible and configurable through Intel Graphics Settings.
    I've double checked 1060 is not running in Smart Manager DB after configuring external displays in Intel GCP.

    Not an expert but i think dGPU is connected to IGP and IGP always renders final image (works as a proxy for dGPU when dgpu is active) so i guess that Aero 15x 's mDP and HDMI ports are connected to IGP (not to dGPU).

    Anyway, Aero 15x specs says: Supports Optimus (but not Supports G-sync)

    Well, tryed to install smart update and when the computer start I got a message "urgent stop working". After the start, if I try to re launch smart update, it works.
    I'm not sure about the exact terms as I translate the message.

    Smart manager is a must have to use this computer
    Please help :(

    Hi,

    proud owner of an Aero 15X here. I just have one single issue:

    when unplugged the CPU clock is too low even for everyday use (firefox, basic windows use), it lags too much.

    To be more precise core temp reads the CPU frequency as 3600 Mhz (100 x 36) plugged in, and 800 Mhz (100 x 8) unplugged. The values oscillate but more or less tyhis are the ranges.

    Having a 800 Mhz processor is quite a drag these days, I understand they're trying to optimize battery life but it is unusable like this.

    Is there a way to speed up the unplugged clock a bit? I've looked inside the BIOS but there are no settings for this in there.

    Thanks!

    I believe i've heard somewhere that whenever you have Optimus, there is never G-sync support, regardless of the external monitor. The reason for this is most likely somewhere along the line what you've said.

    Set your power plan switching to manual in the smart manager and manually select a less battery efficient power plan.

    It's weird because even when I unplugged the laptop the power plan stays on High performance, anyway I have just tried the powercfg CMD file solution a few pages back in this thread and now my cpu clock stays around 2500 Mhz when unplugged (and still in High power plan).

    I'm gonna try your solution as well now, thanks!

    EDIT: Thanks man, I've never used power management before, it did the trick! So happy.

    cheers!
