Strange slowdowns during games on Acer Aspire V3-571G

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently bought an Acer Aspire V3-571G (intel i3-2370/4 gb ddr3 ram/Nvidia GT 630 2 Gb/Windows 8 x64 RTM) and was trying out some games when I noticed that randomly at any near time from the start of the game(any game on any graphical settings) I get seriouse fps drops that makes any further playing impossible.

I updated everything to the latest drivers. disabled startup programs and monitoring programs. but nothing helped.

For example when I ran Crysis 1 (CPU test 1) on medium settings:
1 run-->38 fps
2 run-->37 fps
3 run-->22 fps (becouse at a random time it sips to 16-21 fps)
4 run-->38 fps

as for ingame its like this: say 5 min good fps then all off a sudden very low fps (although there are no explosions and heavy effects)...then at some point it gets good again. smthing like that anyway...

temperatures are fine cpu and gpu both. cpu 71-73C/gpu 75C.

can I get some help on this?

You didn't state what game. tongue.gif Flowing trees and water, along with the projected shadows can impact even an idle gamer.

it could be this http://rog.asus.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-3322.html. Although someone in that thread says that only asus laptops suffer from it.
My own ACER laptop has a very similar problem when playing skyrim (after a random amount of playing my fps drops by a huge amount and restarting the game is the only thing that fixes it and it usually happens in big open areas that put heavy load on the gpu ), so maybe acer chipsets have the same feature as the asus chipset.
I never tried fixing it with throttlestop because my laptop already gets hot enough and i dont want to risk burning it.
