    MIS Afterburne won't give any valuable information.

    Consider GPU-Z logging and check output file for PerfCap column. Please check my detailed guide on working things out: NEWBIES GUIDE FOR ASUS ROG G|GL: READ ANYONE CONSIDERING BUYING ASUS

    Had similar issue, isolated and reproduced it, seems a common issue w asus laptops

    Hi folks,

    I bought an Asus UX550GD, and I was virtually unable to play on it from the beginning. Let me describe what I've learned and see if anybody has the exact same issue.

    So I spent some time trying to reliably reproduce my problem, and found a way. Basically, when the laptop charger is plugged in, then stressing the gpu with any gpu intensive task will cause the WiFi to suffer. These WiFi issues are ranging from a reduced bandwidth to a complete stoppage of any network activity.

    My test scenario is the following:
    -Sit in a reasonable distance from your AP, where the signal is still very good, but not too close.
    -Plug in the machine
    -Start some long download
    -Monitor the download speed
    -Start any game (I used FurMark for demonstration)
    -Witness the download speed dropping to 0

    I reproduced this using 5 different wifi networks in 5 different places. My old laptop (MSI GP70 2PE Leopard) did not have this problem, I did exactly the same experiments in the exact same locations. I sent the ZenBook laptop to RMA 3 times, they replaced the WiFi card 2 times and the motherboard 1 time. The problem was not solved. Then I asked for a complete replacement of the laptop, and guess what, the new one has this issue too! At this pont I am pretty sure that something is not OK with Asus laptops.

    I recorded it, see it on youtube:

    I started a forum thread on Tom's hardware:

    I am looking for people who managed to reproduce it with ther asus product to see how widespread the problem is.

    Found a workaround for my case

    So a few months have passed since my purchase of the Asus UX550GD, when I ran into a forum thread, where somebody had the same issue with an MSI GS60 2PC-003, and provided a software workaround. That worked for me, so let me cross-post that here.

    -On Windows, go to "Device Manager>Network adapters>Intel(R) Wireless AC 9560>Properties>Advanced" (or any other wireless adapter that you have)
    -Set both "Channel Width for 2.4GHz" and "Channel Width for 5GHz" from "Auto" to "20 MHz Only"

    And that's all. I switched this setting on-off for a half a dozen times, I am confident that this setting prevented the WiFi being dropped for me, although I still don't know what is it supposed to toggle (other than working/not working )
