Low FPS (Especially On Laptops)? Check This!
Problem: You play the game but you get a veeery low framerate.

Likely Cause: You run the game on a laptop with 2 graphics chips. An integrated one that saves power and is quite slow. It's used for normal desktop apps such as word processing. And a dedicated graphics chip used for games and 3D apps.

Sometimes, the driver doesn't recognize that it should change from the slow integrated card to the fast card.

Solution: Please make sure to force your driver to use the dedicated graphics card chip in your laptop when starting Son of Nor. Most of the time, this solves the performance problem already. Here's how to do it: http://gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/72567/can-i-force-steam-to-use-my-nvidia-gpu-instead-of-the-integrated-intel-card/72576#72576

If you still experience a low framerate with good hardware after switching to the dedicated graphics card, please let us know. Thanks for your help!
