On my Razer Blade (i7, 32GB RAM, 3080Ti, 240Hz QHD) the dedicated GPU doesn't seem to be working properly. A friend who has the same device gets an average of 80fps in benchmarks (3DMark) while I only get 11 FPS.
What is noticeable though is that the CPU also drops in scores on my device. I assume this is because the graphics calculation is only done by the CPU and not the GPU.
Also, my Blade doesn't get nearly as hot as his. I have now rebooted the device several times, reinstalled windows serval times, removed drivers, installed only the Windows drivers, installed only the Intel drivers, installed only the Nvidia drivers or install all drivers together. None of these have resulted in any change. Also games like CSGO or MW2 have way too little FPS. What I also noticed:
- I cannot open the Nvidia Control Panel. It simply does not start.
- in Geforce Experience it always shows that there is a driver to install, but after installation the info doesn't disappear and I could reinstall the driver endlessly
- If I change the BIOS to GPU Only, the monitor shows nothing and I have to reset the BIOS blindly.
- In Synapse I am not even offered to switch to GPU only mode. This seems to be due to the 240hz QHD display (my device is not in the list of GPU Only devices https://mysupport.razer.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4029/~/which-razer-blade-models-have-a-dedicated-gpu-only-gpu-mode%3F).
Is there anyone here who has the same device and has had similar experiences? The Razer Support is also informed but couldn’t help me yet.
