Inspiron 7567 gaming 4K, low FPS

I just bought Dell Inspiron 7567 gaming laptop with 4K IPS panel. I was very exited to start playing my favorite games on it. Installed all required updates for Windows 10, Steam client, and downloaded Elder Scrolls Online. I was very surprised to see that the FPS count with new GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4gb GDDR5  was almost lower than on my 6 year old XPS L702X laptop with GT 555M 3GB GDDR3.

Dell Inspiron 7567 Gaming  -  44FPS@3840x2160 LOW settings  

Dell XPS L702X  -  33FPS@2715x1527 LOW settings

Full specs:

Dell Inspiron 7567 Gaming: 

Microsoft Windows 10 Pro

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz (Kaby Lake)

16 GB DDR4-2400 single channel RAM

512GB NVMe SSD + 1TB 5400rpm HDD

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4gb GDDR5 (nVidia drivers from Dell support 382.05 ver.)

Dell XPS L702X:

Microsoft Windows 7 Pro

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2760QM CPU @ 2.40GHz (Sandy Bridge-MB)

16GB DDR3-1600 dual channel RAM

250GB SATA3 Samsung EVO750 SSD + 750 GB SATA2 7200 rpm HDD

GeForce GT 555M 3GB GDDR3 (downgraded nVidia drivers from nVidia to 382.05 ver. for compare)

In my humble opinion Inspiron 7567 should perform much better on these specs and pull much better FPS on this game.

Should I take my money back? Or can it be fixed ?

Even a 1070 or 1080 GPU will be challeneged by a 4K screen - for a 1050, forget high performance.

If you want to stick with a lower-end 1050 GPU, a 1080p FHD screen is the best you'll do for gaming -- forget the 4K.

Cranked it up with MSI Afterburner. Maxed out on stable Core clock +252 and Memory clock +297 (no voltage change available). Really happy with results - Elder Scrolls Online pulls 54FPS@3840x2160 HIGH settings now... I can live with that Smiley Tongue Smiley Very Happy
