Lag Problems
Hello people, I am having extreme lag problems on NFS: HP. I believe my computer goes over the maximun required specs. I have the same FPS (10-25) when playing either a race or freedrive. My laptop can run Source-based games maxed out with framerates from 40 to 100. It can run Portal 2 maxed out with framerates from 40 to 60. It can also run Driver: San Francisco maxed out with framerates from 30 to 55, and I think Driver SF looks quite nice graphics-wise. My specs are:
Processor: AMD A8-3520M APU
RAM: 5.6 GB
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit
Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 6620G

I really wanna know what's going on with this, if it's that the game was poorly optimized, or if it's my computer does not meet the requirerments.

Oh, and will my laptop run Need for Speed: Most Wanted 2012? Just a little side question.

Well your CPU sort of barely passes the requirements (which isn't good enough), not sure about the GPU.

Well, darn it. Canyourunit told me I passed all the requierments. I saw videos of gameplay with my specs of BF3 and Skyrim. They were running at 20-30 fps at high, hey, that's not too bad.
I forgot to tell that with Hot Pursuit, I was having the same framerate both at low, medium, and high, both with the lowest resolution, and with the highest. Well, I guess this is just a stupid problem that the game is not so compatible with AMD products, just because EA (or Critieron Games) doesn't care. Anyways.. Is there any possible way to upgrade my graphics card and my processor? That would help.

Oh and I have DirectX 11, isn't that good enough?

NFS games are very high in demand for the best in physics and graphics. having a good graphics card, a good amount of ram and a well built gaming rig will do this. unless you have like a gaming laptop you most likely won't be able to play very many current games made by ea.

also directX11 is basically just like a software update for your hardware. if your hardware (example Graphics card) can't handle directX11 then it won't perform up to it's maximum potential.

ur video card is not good for gaming.

EA literally wants me to say to them "F**k you". Can't they try to be nicer to low budget people? Like Valve? Valve's games can run smoothly on a Windows 98 and satisfy high end gamers with good graphics. EA just publishes some crap game that will let no one but some guy with an Alienware to play.

I have a 560m and an i7 on my Alienware M18x and I can run it maxed out at 1080p with 60 FPS, since it caps there.

Have you also tried lowering your resolution settings and graphic settings?
Garrett Jan 10, 2013 @ 10:38am 
The newest on you won't be able to play.
Garrett Jan 10, 2013 @ 10:39am 
Also, no offence, but that card is horrible.
Garrett Jan 10, 2013 @ 10:40am 
The only thing I woud advise is try 720p and turn down the shadows.

I've said it. I tried both high resolution and low resolution. All the other games I've played with my laptop I have gotten to run on a fair graphics setting and high resolution since my laptop's screen is 1366x768. Also, you have an Alienware. I DO NOT have the money to buy a M18x, I believe I said that. I played the demo of Criterion Games' Burnout Paradise The Ultimate Box. Got it running perfectly. I played the Just Cause 2 Demo, got it running at medium settings. Have you ever tried lowering the shader effects on Hot Pursuit? It DOES NOT do ANYTHING to the game's graphics. Sorry for being mad but it's just that I'm utterly mad at EA.

You can get a gaming laptop almost the same as an Alienware for 1,000. One issue is you're playing video games off a laptop, so...
Garrett Jan 10, 2013 @ 1:27pm 
That's weird that you can't run NFS at 60 FPS, but can run Just Cause 2 fine.
