    Asus XG station2 +Asus ROG Strix 1080Ti performance problem

    3 days ago i got Asus ROG Strix 1080Ti O11G and XG station2 ,i am so happy that my Laptop can use 1080 ti for game,

    after setup everything ,i notice the game’s FPS worse than internal GPU GTX 1060…..but the most strange thing is the benchmark program like 3Dmark or

    Heaven Benchmark-Valley Benchmark ‘s score are normal.(external monitor in 1080p,game setting all max out-The witcher 3 , Rise of the Tomb raider,Gears of war 4)

    All these game's FPS are very low,and i use Cuda-Z the host-to-device (H2D) bandwidth only got 1100MiB/s or 9.22Gbps.

    Any idea what’s going on?

    Hi Joey.ken,

    The external graphics via Thunderbolt 3 is implemented with Microsoft Hybrid Graphics technology, here is what you need to do to gain the full capability of your new GPUs:

    1. Make sure you are using the correct output. For maximum performance, please set your primary display to the monitor connected to the XG STATION 2. You will get the max performance under both Primary and extended mode provided XG STATION 2 is your primary display. Result shows up to 15% faster perfformance comparing with using your notebook monitor.

    2. If you happened to use a notebook with Nvidia Optimus Technology, please make sure you have disabled the Nvidia dGPU from under Device Manager before connecting XG STATION 2, as Nvidia treats XG STATION 2 in the same manner as the Nvidia Optimus Technology. Without doing so the Nvidia driver will only switch between your Intel and Nvidia GPU inside your notebook without using the GTX1080Ti in the XG STATION 2.

    3. Set your game to max settings. The higher the resolution and complexity of the rendering job (i.e. higher AA and performance consuming settings), the closer it is to using the GTX1080Ti in the full size desktop. Results show GTX1080Ti can deliver up to 88.58% of the full performance under benchmark and up to 87.36% under game respectively when comparing performance between Core i7-7700K + Z270 and Core i7-6770HQ + XG STATION 2 combination when working under 4K UHD resolution with max settings. Result varies with games you use.

    4. Make sure you are using Windows 10 64bit, as other OS does not have full support for Thunderbolt 3 external GPU mode.

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    regards,

    By the way, your notebook GR62VR 7RF from MSI (https://www.msi.com/Laptop/GE62VR-7R...#hero-overview) only claim 10Gbps bandwidth on the Type-C port, comparing with what standard Thunderbolt 3, which has up to 40Gbps. Please also make sure your notebook has sufficient bandwidth for external GPU to perform at its fullest.

    This is the version of my laptop ( https://www.msi.com/Laptop/GS63VR-7R...#hero-overview )

    I am sure it got tb3 40Gpbs*

    *I do using external monitor and close the internal monitor ,also close the internal vga card(gtx 1060),btw my internal vga gtx1060 *perform *better *performance *than 1080ti *at the same setting of game **

    Great. This irons out the host side.
    Please kindly help to check the configuration for correct performance.

    Hi joey.ken,

    If your notebook is based on GTX1060, you will not be using Optimus (Hybrid graphics with all outputs connected to Intel GPU), hence you can already skip the first two steps.

    You will need to to higher resolution (the higher the better), highest details, and perhaps higher AA setting, then you will see the significant boost from your built-in GTX1060.

    regards,

    This is my setting of hardware

    This is game FPS

    This is someone same setting with GTX 1080

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75nOWxljlN8


    the game FPS difference is way too big...he 's cpu is i7 2700k

    and you can see TI83-based enclosures VS TI82-based enclosures the host-to-device (H2D) bandwidth

    Are external Video Cards enclosure worth it?
