Low FPS than Expected on Laptop (NVIDIA)
Nvidia 330M card can't be optimized by the reccommended update (320.49)

I am getting rediculously low performance.

CPU: i7 @ 1.8
OS: Win 7
RAM: 8 GB

I know many people with mobile nivida cards also suffering from terrible fps. So its no isolated incident.

Mobile cards are bad, who knew.




kidding, I'm sure it will be fixed in time. Bugs like this are just what you have to deal with when you go mobile.

Yeah its still a pain in the ♥♥♥ though because this card actually ran BF3.

inb4 the game is actually using the integrated card instead of the nVidia.

The 330M isn't exactly a beefy card for anything 3D gaming... But I'm thinking the 1.8GHz clock speed on that i7 might hurt it a bit, no?

Though you can play BF3 on it so that's weird

I also have an i7 laptop with 8GB RAM and am forcing it to use my dedicated 640M GT.

It's not just people not knowing what they are doing and accidentally using integrated cards instead. This is a real and ongoing issue. I've heard terminating the nvxdsync process helps, so I will try that.

Perhaps we could first assume that people know what they know what theyare talking about before first responding with generalizations based upon anecdotal evidence. That might be more productive :)

This is the internet, you can never safely assume someone knows what they are talking about.

In any case, I am well aware of that the issue of the game using the incorrect graphics cards is a wide-spread issue. I don't attribute that fault to OP or the user but everyone needs to be aware that that is a probable issue, especially when experiencing what the OP is describing. So feel free to tone down the butthurt.

I don't know what "butthurt" implies. I'll just assume you're being disrespectful to a polite but critical response to your post and ignore it.

"inb4 the game is actually using the integrated card instead of the nVidia."

You might have a bit more concise in wording that as it comes off as impolite, but as I write this, you're very right about at least one thing: I should never assume someone knows what they are talking about. Particularly, it would seem, in terms of social graces.

I'm going to go ahread and unsubscribe to this as I've made my point and don't see anything productive in trying to explain etiquette to you. Feel free to continue informing people of issues in a vaguely uncouth and hostile fashion in my absence though, I mean, it'd be a damn shame if steam had any less people doing that. Whatever would we do with a community base of mature users able to communicate articulately and politely on issues? Thank heavens we have users like yourself here to safeguard against such scenarios.

Thanks for some tips guys, I'll try and ghetto some things out tonight.

I've been trying to force the video card, its actually almost impossible to do with the most recent driver. I have to do it manually
Mikemetroid Sep 4, 2013 @ 12:14pm 
Actually, upon looking at it now, this processor doesn't even have its own display driver under Computer Management.
Andrew Sep 4, 2013 @ 12:34pm 
The latest beta drivers seem to help the situtation for some.
