Low FPS problem

Postby W!ck3D » Fri Jun 03, 2016 7:54 pm

Hey guys

I've made this topic because I'm experiencing some annoying low FPS problems. I've playing on a new Lenovo laptop. It has a i7-4510 CPU (4 cores, 2.6Ghz), contains 8GB RAM DDR3 and it has some low "graphic card", the NVIDIA Geforce 840M. When I bought this laptop, it could perfectly run GTA V (medium settings), Wolfenstein ET, Sniper Elite III (high settings) and so on. But today, after some time I spent for school, I want to play again some games. But it seems that my laptop can't get higher FPS than 30FPS. I tried everything, /com_maxFPS 125, /rate 32000, new drivers for gpu, new drivers for cpu, nothing. Anybody has an idea?

Thanks

Are you sure you're running your games with your GPU and not intel HD graphics ?

Maybe could you disable your Intel Graphics GPU to see how it goes ?

Also, have you tried installing ET Legacy ? Solved issues on my gaming laptop :up:

Mostly whenever i have a fresh install for ET i get that lag around 20-15 fps
Have you tried using /r_primitives 2 ?
And in minecraft, the new snapshot causes the lag and has some buffed settings since microsoft ruined it xD so try installing optifine for that

Did you check your alimentation options ? I have an Asus ROG lappy and when it is not plugged, my CPU is around 0.6 GHz so everything laggs and when I'm plugged I'm back at 3.4 GHz.

So if it's not your GPU, you should check around CPU :)

I checked everything about the CPU, installed even new drivers but has minimal effect. I'll give it another try and check everything once more xD

// EDIT: Just found out that my DISK USAGE still is arround 90%, but there are no heavy programs open or smth else...
