A friend and I recently bought 2 of the same laptop model, custom ordered to be same spec and performance
I did the initial software installation, drivers update, config, etc. for both machine, and I ensured that both are of the same setting
But for some reason, my friend's model running game with 50% low framerate than my laptop at the same setting

Example running both machine side by side:

Dark Souls 2
Me: 50-60fps
Friend: 30-45fps

Crysis 3
Me: 50-60fps

Only tested out the performance on his machine, but the performance was lower than what his GPU should be capable of (a gtx880m)

I found this oddly concerning and decided to further test out the problem. We seems to have the exact same frame performance when using benchmarking software MSI Kombustor for stresstest (both hit 18fps at max stress test); and we also have the exact same frame performance for Far Cry 3

So far I have checked around the entire setting but yet I can't seem to point out what would be the problem causing this discrepancy. Aside from gaming, everything seems to be running up to task finely. Anyone here have any insight on what could cause this drastic difference? Both machines are brand new out of the box and setup with the same exact configuration.

Incase anyone wondering the machines' spec:
MSI GT60 2pe 3k edition
Windows 8.1
Intel i7 4910MQ
16gb ram
