Even though I think it is not required for my question please below is the specs:
LAPTOP 1 LAPTOP 2
CPU Core i7 7700HQ Core i7 7700HQ
GPU NVidia GTX1060 6gb NVidia GTX1060 6gb and Intel HD 630 (Optimus Technology)
RAM 16gb DDR4 2400 16gb DDR4 2400
SSD 256gb 256gb
HDD 1TB 1TB
Display 17.3" IPS 17.3" IPS
Do you think Laptop 1 will perform better in games than Laptop 2?
I read that optimus technology passthru Intel HD when using discrete gpu.
So is my understanding correct that a single gpu will perform better graphics.

Thank you for your response.
Looking into the information of the NVIDIA® optimums technology, it gives you an auto switch of graphics deepening on the need of the applications that you are running on the system, for more effective battery power consumption and saving, and by the information find on the Whitepaper (refer to the following link http://www.nvidia.com/object/optimus_technology.html) you are right regarding that the discrete GPU is handling all the rendering duties, the final image output to the display is still handled by the Intel integrated graphics processor (IGP). In effect, the IGP is only being used as a simple display controller, resulting in a seamless, flicker-free experience with no need to reboot.
In the case of the laptop running with only the discrete GPU you may have more power consumption and less battery power saving at the time of using the application in your system.
Being said so, there is no better one, but the best one for you will be the one that better suits all your needs or of the applications that you want to run with.
Finally, if you need more detailed information our suggestion is to contact directly the laptop/discrete video graphics card.
