    I saw someone beat my score on the leaderboard in Time Spy recently so I decided to take back the top spot. :)

    Here are the results.
    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Max-Q video card benchmark result - Intel Core i7-10750H,Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. MS-16V1 (3dmark.com)
    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Max-Q video card benchmark result - Intel Core i7-10750H,Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. MS-16V1 (3dmark.com)

    Just to give some context of the stock performance of the GS66 with an 80W 2070 Super Max-Q

    Time Spy graphics: ~7080
    Fire Strike graphics: ~18900



    After the shunt mod(130-140W) and overclock these are the scores I get.

    Time Spy graphics: 9895 (+39.8%) DX12
    Fire Strike graphics: 25456(+34.7%) DX11

    Did you do any updates to your system since the original mods you did? I don't think I was able to beat those Chinese modders with my setup. Originally had the top 3 spot but bumped allllll the way down now to past 100 lol. Still though it is second best in the US at least.

    The only thing I did was increase the wattage to 130-140W and tweaked the overclock a little bit. The rest of the mods stayed the same.

    Otherwise, I did what Hakanese suggested to do when benchmarking. I didn't know about some of these settings when I benchmarked previously.
    • Go to Nvidia Control Panel by right-clicking your desktop, go to Manage 3d Settings.
    • Max Frame Rate Off
    • Power management mode set to Prefer Maximum Performance
    • Texture filtering - Quality High Performance
    • then click apply
    Unplugged any peripherals I had connected and turned off RGB lighting. Turned off Bluetooth and wifi by going into airplane mode. Closed any running background apps except Throttlestop. Turned on Coolerboost and then started benching.

    That's a very nice score for 2060. I am guessing you used a higher wattage vbios?

    The 115w 2060 vBIOS from HP. This vBIOS preserves MUX for dGPU or iGPU, and all video outs work. The MSI version kills dGPU to internal display and kills both TB3 outputs for DP. Luckily the HP version is flawless :)

    Since the laptop comes with a small Delta 180w adapter I need to be concerned about power. So I used a killawatt to measure draw. At full tilt it can pull 200w.

    With a small undervolt to both CPU and GPU I am right at 170-175w under heavy load.
