Diablo 3 laptop help!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Need some help. I'm a longtime d3 player on my desktop, and I run it with no difficulties. I recently started playing on what is a pretty good gaming laptop, and it's performing HORRIBLY (~20fps). My laptop is:
Sager NP6175
i7-3610QM
nVidia GT 650M
8gb 1600mhz ddr
Primary Hard Drive 500gb (w/ 4GB SSD Memory) Seagate XT 7200RPM

This laptop should have NO trouble playing d3, but I suffer to get 25fps at low resolutions with all details on low. I'm using the correct GPU to run the game.

What else could it be? Is it because d3 is CPU intensive and the lappy CPU is pretty low powered? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I had the issues on my laptop. Which sadly is a far different beast than yours mad.gif I finally got mine to run smoothly and on high settings after totally updating my drivers and pulling my hair out a couple of times. All I can offer advice wise is make sure you update drivers and check to be sure your using your video card for the game, it worked for me.

that's odd I wasn't having much of an issue at 900p high settings with my 2630qm and 555m, is your computer not using the dedicated card and running off the cpu's video?

According to this you should be doing great in d3. http://www.anandtech.com/show/5865/laptop-graphics-face-off-diablo-iii-performance/3

Make sure all the drivers are up to date, and nothing odd is running in the background.

The GT 650m Throttles the clock when the GPU gets over 67C. Use msi afterburner and check your temps.

Drivers is my vote.

Also make sure your power settings are not eco or power savings. That will throttle everything. Make sure you are plugged in and "Performace" or "Max" power management is slected.

Ok, so after looking at afterburner:
GPU temps hit about 63-64, and never go higher.
GPU usage is around 5-10% when doing nothing.. between 50-60% when playing d3. It NEVER approached 100% even though I wasn't near 60 fps
Core clock/Memory clock stay at 660/2000 in game, stable. I select to use the nVidia card by default... can it be sharing it or something with the onboard?

Thanks!

The GT 650m core clock should be between 735-845Mhz. This sounds like a software issue.

Sorry, my mistake, core is 835 in game. Usage still hovers around 50% while my FPS are 25-35. I have nVidia GPU forced in 3d settings... anyone know why this may be going on?
Temps are low 60s and no throttling is going on. It's just not using 100% of the GPU.

This is a stupid question, admittedly - but is there a setting in your driver to enable the 650M vs. the HD4000 integrated graphics for certain executables / applications? I know on my HP dv7 with Radeon 5770 it has "switchable" graphics - the laptop can use the integrated graphics, or the supplemental graphics card - but you have to tell it when to use each.
