External monitor with laptop?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! I have a FirePro M8900 that I hook up to a 2560x1440 monitor. I'll have my laptop's 1920x1080 display on at the same time while I'm playing a game on the external monitor. Possibly a dumb question but would that lower performance at all? To have the laptop screen just sitting on the desktop while playing a game on the other screen? o_O

Nothing noticeable, I do the same with my laptop connected to a 1440p monitor and game.on it while the laptop screen is on. I don't notice any significant change compared to it the laptop screen was off.
