Gaming Laptop, but still low fps
These are my specs:

GPU: GeForce GTX 770M
CPU: Intel Core i7-4700MQ @ 2,4GHZ (Turbo Boost up to 3,don´t know what)
16GB RAM
Windows 8.1

GeForce Experience recommends quite high settings with a resolution of 1920x1080. The game runs at 5-10 fps. Is my gpu really that bad? It runs GTA IV greatly and even the latest games are no problem.

Oh, I forgot, I have to start the game with /dxadapter=0. Otherwise, it won´t start. Don´t really know why...

Maybe you shouldn't use a Tablet OS to run Video Games.

That command you are using forces it to use the integrated graphics card in your laptop.
That's why it is performing poorly.

There should be a way to use the Nvidia card in the Nvidia Control Panel.

You mean because it is optimised for low-performance tablets that don't have as much RAM and CPU for the OS itself?

windows 8 has dx11 which does improve fps

All DirectX does is let game devs have more graphicly intensive games.

i have the gtx 680m yet i cant get my laptop to run it on that gpu after several different methods, so i have no choice to run on the intel hd 4000 but it actually runs fine in 1080p everthing high apart from shadows on low and 2x msaa and i get around 45 to 60 fps which isnt perfect but is perfectly playable also the same fps in multi but will dip at times. my advice update your intel drivers or even roll back to and older version and reinstall the game if that dont help.

to run the game just cause 2 perfectly you need a 3ghz proccesor :P
Uncle Sam Mar 23, 2014 @ 3:33am 
I have a 3GHZ processor.
Uncle Sam Mar 23, 2014 @ 3:34am 
It already works. So, thank you all for your comments

I think the moral of the story here is: Dont buy gaming laptops. Take the ridiculous sticker price you were prepared to spend, and part out a full desktop with a REAL GPU, not a scaled down, one-off mobile gpu. Pre built gaming rigs are a SCAM! build your own rig, its easy, and cheep.

And for the love of god, put Win7 on it! Even microsoft is starting to admit 8 was a faceplant.
