Ok guys, so you are my last hope now i've tried a loooot of things, still the same issue
When i'm running games like ARK or PUBG i'm feeling like i'm on a GTX8XX or lower !
But i have this laptop
Acer Predator Helios 300 PH317-51-779L 17" Intel Core i7, 16 GoRAM, 1 To + SSD 256 Go, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, Windows 10
I did all my drivers update, tried to touch to every nvidia control panels settings, follow the Skelomorph's advices on this forum.
But still when i'm running pubg for exemple, if i don't put the setting to very low, i'm at 40/50fps max (even on low settings, and of course it's even worse on medium, high and ultra)
Or ARK, when the put the settings on "High" (wich is recommended for GTX970) i'm still running the game at 50fps or even lower on some maps
But a game like Black Desert Online is running well on ULTRA settings, weird ? I already tried to put my games on the SSD, still the same problem
I did a benchmark test, the test is "good" : http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/8103170
I also tried to verify my disks with CrystalDisk, apparently no problems.
Can you help ?

    Have you tried to dedicate the game directly to the GPU?

    In the Nvidia Control Panel ?
    In the 3D settings i set "use the High Performance NVIDIA processor"
    But in the PhysX settings, laptop screen is on the Intel graphic card, impossible to change it, i don't know if this is the problem.

    Well first, they never made GTX 8 series. lol.

    Second, have you tried just disabling VSync and Triple Buffering? Some/all settings differ for different games.

    As for PhysX, it has nothing to do with a laptop gaming on a single screen. Any settings you will want to pick are in Manage 3D settings. Make sure your games use the GTX 1060 are the default GPU and not the iGPU.

    I already did all of this stuff, changed everything it was possible to change, tried overclock, no overclock, disable triple buffering, vsync, the game uses the GPU, i know about 3D settings, did everything that i had to do, nothing. truly i tested everything, welll i guess i did ! (GTX8 series was a wink ;) ^^)

    hey ı ve same  predator and  ı ve same problems what u say all of them
  • yaugenkayaugenka Posts: 4Member New User
    hey I face the same problem with my Predator PH315-51. Has anyone found a solution?
  • It could be a great many things causing the game to not run optimumly.

    Could be windows background services hogging resources.
    Or a Nvidia control panel graphic setting conflicting with the games graphic setting cause the Nvidia isnt set to let 3d aplication decide.

    Even the driver version plays a role.
    I've found driver version 388.31 for all Helios 300 models gives a consistent 5-6% increase in performance.

    It's most definately a snag in a setting somewhere as I can run PUBG on all ultra except shadows on high and maintain 60-90 fps throughout my play time.

    @Sleiken
    One thing you could try is to uninstall the GEExperience, and try optimizing the games yourself - trust me, this works better than the latter.

    Windows 10 v1803 turned to be the root of all these problems. Reverting to 1709 got things back on track.

    If anyone finds out what exactly (some driver or software etc.) from the 1803 update is causing the issue please let us know.

    i'm having the same kinds of problems. i barely reach 100 fps in dota 2 and in cs go i get 100 to 150 fps regardless of the setting level. but in fortnite i get 80- 120 fps in high settings. i have the 2018 model(gtx 1060 i7 8750h) .
    the fps i'm getting is way lower than the benchmarks. i've tried everything from updating and downgrading drivers, all nvidia settings, vsync is off and even reset my pc. running out of ideas...

    I was facing minor glitches when playing online games and once noticed that my hdd was doing something while I was not browsing it. Then I found out that Windows 10 OS which is installed on ssd is automatically configured to place the pagefile onto hdd instead of ssd and that was the cause of those minor gliches because hdd works considerably slower than ssd. You can reallocate the pagefile to an ssd disk via system options -> performance -> virtual memory settings to make the system work faster but WARNING: your ssd lifecycle will get reduced considerably!
