Interesting finding about connecting USB-C to external monitor.

So if you do this by default it connects with “Optimus” only, and that leads to lower GPU performance.

To avoid this, you need to change BIOS setting to discrete GPU only.

To overcome this limitation and maximize GPU performance, you mentioned that changing the BIOS setting to use the discrete GPU only is necessary. This configuration ensures that the dedicated GPU is utilized for graphics processing when connecting the USB-C to an external monitor.

Changing the BIOS setting to switch to the discrete GPU can vary depending on the specific hardware and BIOS version. It is advisable to consult the documentation or support resources provided by your device manufacturer for detailed instructions on how to make this adjustment.

By making this change, you should experience improved GPU performance when using USB-C to connect to an external monitor. However, it's worth noting that configuring the system to use the discrete GPU exclusively may result in increased power consumption and potentially reduced battery life, as the dedicated GPU typically consumes more power than the integrated GPU.

Overall, it's important to weigh the trade-offs between GPU performance and power consumption to determine the most suitable configuration for your specific needs.
