how much RAM do you have ? I heard dual channel is supposed to help performance too. I have 2X 8GB RAMs of the same make and model. Also it might be because you have the legit version ,all the Xbox services running in the background.
I have every single xbox related service disabled on a system level via services.msc and pretty much have a completely bare bones install with absolutely nothing else besides DS4 Windows. I have a separate work/home laptop I use for general browsing downloading etc, my gaming PC is completely barren. I even keep it on airplane mode
1080p/60 easily with a few setting adjustments.I turned off dynamic optimization and tweaking settings manually.
Motion blur = off, Shadows = medium, AA = 2X w/ FXAA, 8X Anisotropic filtering and the rest are all high. I play in the far chase camera so some of the settings like rare view mirror quality etc don't have any effect. I notice a few drops to mid 50's when there's a bunch of cars in areas with a lot of breakable objects (mostly starts of circuit races in urban areas) but it stablizes to 60 FPS within a few seconds, 99% of the times the games' running at locked 60.
PS. If you haven't, watch this. This is what made me decide to get a cheaper Max Q laptop instead of a more expensive full 1060 one.

DF did a breakdown of 1060 Max Q's a little while ago. In pure performance comparisons, it seems to only be 8~% less than a full phat laptop 1060 and you can even overclock it a teeny bit to make it match 1 : 1 with the full 1060 without worrying about heating issues.
Yeah. FFXV is by far the 'heaviest' game requirement wise I've played on the laptop so far but even that I am playing at 150% super sampling on standard settings to 1080p with frame rate locked to 45 through Riva Tuner. Works like a charm.
Plus, it's saving me a shit load of money So I won't mind if multi-plat games run not as well as they would on the Pro
Costco had an AH-MAZING sale in December just after Black Friday. They were selling these for $699. I got one of those $1 Ebay codes for $25 off of Costco orders and shaved some more money off of it. I added a $58 1TB SSHD and $80 8GB RAM to it to bring it to it's maximum for just $780 or so.
Meanwhile the same laptop with 1TB HDD and 16GB RAM is selling for $999 or more on Dell's official store. I got a fan-fucking-tastic deal.
The only drawback is that I got the i5 model, the i7 model is + $200. But realistically I don't think I'll have an issue with that for the foreseeable future.
estimating that I'll be at basic level by year's end going at current pace (N5 level). Bhot asaan hai waise Japanese, I would encourage everyone to try it if they're looking to learn a 3rd or 4th language.
