    Guys with all the hardship of dealing with the drivers. You guys feel it's worth making the switch to RTX now or wait a few weeks/couple months. I am in no rush.

    You may have tried upgrading with standard drivers, I would use DDU to clean install them.

    When you tried to install them, did you choose the option to install the geforce experience with the driver or just the driver alone? Also, did you upgrade to the newest build yet? Its 1809 i believe now.

    So after the full wipe/clean install, I got everything working, including Optimus and Nvidia control panel on the newest drivers (used the NVSlimmer app). Something strange I noticed though, out of the box, my cpu idled around 54c and jumped up to high 80s during gaming and cinebench cpu testing so I thought that maybe I got a bad LM paste job or warped heatsink. Also, even sitting at idle, my fans would kick on and off. Now after redoing the entire installation of windows and drivers/apps, I'm sitting at 44c and cinebench pulls a 1250 score with only reaching low 80s. After owning this laptop for almost a week now, I can finally start really using it.

    I am 100% fully updated. Windows, bios, firmware, the whole shebang.
    And I never install GeForce experience. Robs you of performance.

    Oh, yeah i know that of course. I believe it wont install the control panel for you if you don't install them both at the same time though. After, just uninstall it. I did.

    Well folks, I fixed my Nvidia and Intel control panel issues.
    The culprit was NOT HAVING DRAGON CENTER RUNNING.
    Yup, I needed to have Dragon Center 2 running. I suspect that it's used as a key to allow the system to download certain software items (Nvidia, Intel, Nahimic, etc).

    So what I did was install Dragon Center, download the control panels in the Microsoft Store, then disable Dragon Center from starting up via Task Scheduler. Done deal.
     
    ixixmmx and wavex like this.

    Nice job! Will never understand the reason why you need certain programs running just to update something completely unrelated to each other.
