I would like to start by saying that I've already contacted nVidia and Microsoft support via chat and they couldn't help me.
My specs: - Laptop: Clevo P870km1-g - CPU: I7-7700K @ 4.2ghz - Drive: Samsung SSD 960 pro 512GB - Ram: 32gb @ 2400mhz - GPU: Nvidia GTX 1080 (SLI enabled)
Windows recently installed the creators update for my laptop. Since that happend, my laptops' performance was very poor. Microsoft and nVidia both have a running case on this.
The problem is, everything that involves animation feels sluggish and everything I do feels slower than before, like opening chrome. Not just slower, but taking the specs into account, really slow. So I tried a couple of things:
- Enabled/disabled SLI
- Disable Game DVR
- Disable Game Mode
- Disable full screen optimization
- Completely removed driver in safe mode and reinstalled after reboot (hotfix 381.78)
- Drivers tried: 376.33, 381.65, 381.78 (based on forum and nvidia suggestions)
- Changed page file size manually and as recommended by windows
- Disable VSync
- Created a new account
- Firewall disabled
- AV disabled
- Maximum performance via power options
- Cleaned cache and prefex
- Other things I can't remember
- Reset my windows installation
- Installed process explorer to check for high CPU/GPU/RAM/Disk usage (all idle)
- Ran checkdisk and memory test (pass)
When I run the performance monitor using the following command:
I get a report saying that every aspect of my computer is performing slow (information message) - CPU - Graphics - Ram - Hard drive
That can't be coincidental, can it? And it's true, everything I do feels like slow motion compared to before the update.
Running all cinebench tests, I get a result that's really surprising, I'm ranked just beneath a GTX 670m. Games struggle to keep above 30FPS. It doesn't matter which game. as soon as it start te demand something, FPS drops significantly.
I'm hoping somebody has had a similar problem and might suggest a potential fix for me to try.
