Alienware R4 17's i7 6700HQ...
Hey all, I've recently gotten this laptop and it's been an absolute beast (GTX 1070). I'm just curious: am I getting the maximum performance with this processor? I've been playing Titanfall 2, Overwatch, Witcher 3, Skyrim (modded), Star Citizen, Squad, Battlefield 1, etc. Mostly been playing at 1440p.
The games that actually have a drastic lower FPS reading are Star Citizen and Squad, both games in Alpha, and not optimized. I was talking to some other players with stronger CPU's, and they seem to be getting much better FPS. The rest have fine FPS, but I am just curious if my CPU is dropping any extra frames I can get back.
BUT: These games are in alpha stage, so do I have nothing to worry about once they come out properly? Mostly, I'm just wondering if the games that are out are having any drops from the CPU being bottlenecked, and if yes, what the best course of action would be.
If it is, is there a way to upgrade to something better, and is it worth it? Thank you very much.
