I've been working in China for about 2 years, and I bought a Chinese brand laptop which is used by my GF right now.
I've always gotten lower fps than expected from the raw specs, but today was the breaking point.
In Tomb Raider (2013), I'm getting 55fps average (Min 50) on ultra when I should be getting a LOT higher. In fact, with i7+GTX 1060 I should be getting ~50fps in RISE of the tomb raider (2017), which is a much newer game...
Fallout 4 - I'm getting 15(!) - 40 FPS in fallout 4 in certain instances on ultra. Lowering the quality from ultra to high and TAA to FXAA didn't help at all, still the same choppy ~20-30 FPS in demanding scenes.
Laptop's been getting a bit hot lately, but as long as I turn fan up to 100%, the CPU and GPU temps hover in the high 80s, so throttling shouldn't be a problem. However, the GPU utilization never went above 80% even when when I was getting ~15 fps, so what could be the problem?
Edit: No resource-intensive background processes, killed all resource-consuming processes through task manager and still the lag persisted.
