    I've seen a few people on the forums having trouble with a choppy desktop with the RBS + Core when using an external monitor. When my monitor came in a few days ago, I had the same issue. Upon messing around with some things, I found that by going into the device manager and disabling the integrated graphics chip, the choppiness is fixed. Just be sure to enable it again before you switch back to your laptop display

    Do you have to disable/enable every time you switch? That seems kinda annoying if you have to do it every time you switch displays :\

    Not 100% sure honestly, just figured the whole thing out now. I did find that if you disable it and immediately enable it again the choppiness still goes away. I believe that its a bug involving the different drivers that each display is using so hopefully a software update can fix it later.

    Another temporary fix also is to use your laptop display as "extended". That completely fixed my choppiness in Windows.

    I have the same issue. Disabling the integrated graphics fixes the problem but is annoying. I'd much rather have everything work correctly. Extending the desktop is also a poor solution because then the video signal is traveling back through the thunderbolt cable to the laptop, consuming bandwidth that could otherwise be used to increase gaming performance.

    Basic Info:
    Laptop: Stealth (obviously)
    Graphics: GTX 1080
    Desktop Resolution: 3440 x 1440

    I mean I wouldn't go as far as calling it a "poor" solution. I have seen zero performance degradation from my end by extending the display.

    Don't forget to make sure the Display is outputting at 60hz and not 30hz (made that mistake before)

    Update: Installing the latest graphics drivers from Razer fixed the issue.

    Glad to see that solutions have been found to a common issue!
     
  10. Latest Desktop or Integrated GFX Drivers?
