Laptop Switchable graphics issue

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone

I recently bought a Samsung I7 laptop with 7670M switchable graphics and I thought my gaming performance was allrite until my brother showed up with his I5 laptop same 7670M same 8Gb ram Toshiba rolleyes.gif with the same gpu he get to play games on much higher settings then I do (ie: path of exile. he maxed it out with full AA and I can hardly medium it with AA off). I even tried modified drivers (leshcat) but no luck .. my pc just doesnt perform well enough ... funny thing is, we both run 3D mark vantage at the same time and I scored higher then him even though my frames were lower and his tests were running much smoother redface.gif ...

any suggestions?
thanks a lot !!!

This might shound stupid, but what power/battery profile do you play on? Remember to game always in high performance settings. Many people forget about it and leave it at balanced or power saving and the performance drops A LOT!
