New MSI laptop w/ 1060 gfx low results

Recommended Posts

So I am seeing what I presume to be fairly low (gpu) scores..

My desktop is beating this score by 700 pts ,almost all in the GPU score.  My desktop is a 780ti

I have the performance set in nvidia control panel for novabench, but im suspicious that its not using the GPU but the intel instead

Ok so i just switched novabench inside nvidia control panel to integrated graphics, saw the same FPS and same overall novabench score..

so I am definitely (i think haha) using the onboard not the gpu.  so im going to uninstall everything and try again with fresh nvidia drivers.


edit : however i download HWmonitor and it seems the GPU is working and spiking up a bit at times during tests... could this laptop be that much worse than my standard rig? with a 780ti?

The 1060 in a laptop could be underclocked due to thermal constraints. It's definitely a much lower score than an average 1060. That said, the 780ti is still a very high-scoring card.

Give GPU-Z a shot during the test to see if the "perfcap" is giving a reason why the performance might be capped.
