    Hi. In the imgur album both CPU and GPU show low utilization. Power/clocks also seem adequate.

    A video with similar spec, same area, same resolution - stable 60 fps.

    FPS jumps 40-55, making input and overall experience bad. Changing settings and resolution doesn't do anything, even lowest preset + 800x600.

    Things I did so far:

    -set app to use eGPU in nvidia control panel
    -set app to use eGPU in system/display/graphics
    -set power mode to "best performance"
    -test GPU with MSI Kombustor, it can reach 100% utilization

    Razer Blade 15 Mid 2019-base
    RTX 2060
    i7 9750H
    16gb ram
    512.77 driver
    Windows 11 Home 10.0.22000

    Note, I am running my laptop without battery (it was swollen so I removed it).

    Someone suggested this might be caused by the power limit (doesn't seem to go higher than 80w). Power sliders are disabled in msi afterburner (by bios?).

    I will create a case and forward this to our RMA Team for a replacement battery request. PM me the serial number of your laptop so I can validate its model specifications and help me start a case. I will lock this thread to curb our conversation privately.
