Hello!
I have recently been experiencing major FPS drops when using an external monitor for my laptop, which is a Lenovo Legion Y520 with a GTX1050, 8GB RAM, i7-7700HQ and a 1920x1080 display. I normally get around 100 FPS in games on low-medium settings but when I run games on my display only (laptop screen turned off, lid open) I only get 25-40 FPS. The display I am connecting it to is a 1920x1080 monitor, via a HDMI cable. I have tried changing my NVIDIA Optimus settings but to no avail.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Regards,
Smedo.
