Dell Laptop - GTX 1050 - W & W/O Displaylink

Hi All

Just a random question hoping someone has any advise/experience with this.

I just got a new dell laptop with a GTX 1050 inside, I have it connect to a Dell 3100 dock which is a displaylink dock.

I ran the Valley benchmark and it was terrible on my monitors, with FPS of 6 lol. I have just run it now with it not plugged into the dock and FPS was 32.6, massive increase.

Is this the docks fault? What is going on I though the dock was just an expansion of ports but it seems to have a massive negative effect on the laptops performance?

Is there a fix for this, as when I do game on it, I want to game on my monitors not the laptop screen.

Cheers
