Thanks in advance for anyone looking this.
Last month (April 2018), I recently spent $3,500 on a new gaming laptop since my job now requires me to travel for work. I did extensive research and ended up buying the following:
ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501VI-XS74 Pro Extreme (i7-7700HQ, 24GB RAM, 1TB NVMe SSD, GTX 1080 8GB, 15.6" Full HD 120Hz G-Sync, Windows 10 Pro) Gaming Notebook
This unit was considered a top contender for best gaming notebook across the board. Upon receiving it, I instantly paired it with an Asus Rog Swith Monitor (another $800). My problem? The performance is absolutely horrible. Unlike with most PC's though, I don't think its the FPS that seem to be lacking. The game (PUBG) is just really grainy and has a horrible picture. When engaged in battle, it's so grainy and choppy I get slaughtered. It's just unplayable (and this setup comes in just under $4500)
Things I've tried:
- All graphics card drivers are up to date
- Multiple Monitor Brands & Models
- Gforce Experienced Installed, allowed game optimization
- Monitor Installed Properly
Please note, I'm not being picky when I say it's unplayable. Its so bad I might as well not even sit down to play. My desktop that's 2 years old with a much crappier monitor plays 10X better than this new "state of the art laptop". I don't know what else to try.
