    You can see in DOOM it's turned off. Also in mafia I turned it off but no changes. Vsync only caps the fps to 60.

    Actually, when I turned on MSI Afterburner FPS counter, it shows 120+ fps. But steam and shadow play fps shows 60+ fps. I thought MSI Afterburner had a problem with fps count. What do you think?

    Well, the only difference between the videos is that Ridha has reflections turned to Ultra, whereas the ASUS video has reflections set to high.
    Try doing another test with reflections set to high, maybe that could be the limiting factor for you.

    EDIT: Ridha, use DOOM's built in Performance meter. It tends to be really accurate IMO.

    Use afterburner by itself and see what you get I don't think the problem is with your machine. We will figure this out!

    I only use afterburner and it always works for me.

    This is using DOOM's built in meter:

    Using Afterburner, it shows above 120 fps.

    That makes no sense at all.. why are these numbers so weird. I'm about to buy doom and test it on my 970m. Something isn't right.

    Did it still average around 60fps?
    The reason I said this was because Afterburner doesn't work with Vulkan, but it seems you're running OpenGL 4.5 so it should be fine in this case. Take Afterburner's reading then. When you test with Vulkan, use DOOM's integrated one.

    My Razer 1060 just arrived. QHD+, 512GB - but upgraded to Samsung 950 SSD courtesy if Hidevolution. I'm curious what the extra drive speed will provide, outside of synthetic read/write benchmarks.

    Anyone up for running PCMark on a similar but non-upgraded config so we can compare? Or if anyone can recommend another all-round benchmark, we can nominate something else.

    I'll do PCMark. Can you please test Mafia III or DOOM if you have any of them? I'm getting way lower fps compared to other laptops with GTX 1060!
     
  9. I'll run DOOM on my blade as well..

    What settings are you using in doom? And power settings as well.

    Max out doom on 1080. High performance power settings.

    Yup, as @Firebat246 said.

    Now for some reason I'm getting a bit better performance but in fights it drops to 50-60 fps :slightly_sad:
    I saw the asus 1060 laptop, he is getting 90-100 fps even in fights.

    So the question is what's different with the asus!? Both same CPU and gpu... and you aren't thermal throttling. Something is not right.. it's frustrating.

    Okso I bought and installed doom on my razer blade 970m. Something is definitely up with yours because I was able to achieve depending on the scene between 50 minimum to 100 max FPS. It hovered in the 70-80 FPS range for the most part and this was on complete max settings.

    Do you think that's a hardware issue or a software issue? Because same thing with MAFIA III, I can't achieve 60 fps on 1080p even with lowest settings. I've seen videos on youtube hitting 70 fps easily !

    It's too early to say what it might be. If it's a hardware issue it's likely the gpu.... but i personally think it's something else. I'm beating my head against the wall trying to figure it out.

    I just figured it out!!! This is the issue:

    [​IMG]

    While playing DOOM, I unplugged the charger and the fps gone up all the way from 50fps to 80-100fps !!!

    I think I need to buy another cable that has Australian connector.

    Apperantly using an adapter reduces the power delivered to the laptop!

    Power limit throttle!!! That might be it all along wow great find!! You definitely need to play around with that. So it actually ran better on battery?? I seriously had a feeling it wasn't your hardware. At least not internal hardware. Do some more tests see what you get.

    OMG!! I'm seeing huge improvements across all of my games when playing on battery which is funny because the charger supposed to provide more power than the battery does. I tried HITMAN with the charger plugged in, I'm getting 30-40 fps, once I unplug the charger it jumps to 60fps lol. I can't believe that all the time I had my 970m version, I was playing with power limit throttling! No wonder I was getting very low performance!

    Wow great breakthrough. I'm actually really glad my initial findings of power limit throttling were correct. This changes everything and now we need all new tests, lmao. I feel way better in my New Blade purchase now. I'd love to see some new benchmarks now.

    Lol, I'm very happy now that the issue isn't an internal issue! I'll go tomorrow to buy an AU cable and will test it!
    Sorry for all of the misleading benchmarks. I'll delete them from YouTube, so people don't get disappointed hahaha.
