Laptop using Intel integrated graphics for games instead of NVIDIA ones

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, been a while since I've posted on here. I have a MSI GT70 2OC-065US laptop, and have been enjoying my new computer for a month or two with no major problems. Most games run great, but also have some pretty ugly textures. Never really paid much attention to it though until just a little bit ago. I bought Lost Planet 2 off Steam (as well as a *****ton of other games while they were on sale) and started up the benchmark before playing and noticed it shows the GPU it's using as the integrated Intel one, not my NVIDIA one. I searched around a bit on the web and tried a couple fixes, such as going to the control panel and setting the 'Preferred Graphics Processor' to 'High Performance NVIDIA', retested it on the benchmark and still says Intel. I then made a custom program settings page for the .exe and retried it with no success. I also tried to set the 'Power Management Mode' to 'Prefer Maximum Performance' and that didn't help either. I'm starting to think it's been using the Intel graphics the entire time for every game, and I have no idea on how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated.

Specs (apparently my rig doesn't show up)

Intel i7-4700MQ @3.4GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770M
8GB RAM
Windows 8

what kind of FPS are you getting? the difference between a 770M and HD4000 is staggeringly obvious...

I only ran the benchmark for about 5-10 seconds each time I tried it, but it was around 40fps. Usually I try to run every game at 60 or above, Bioshock Infinite I think I have the premade settings on High and it's well over 60. It just seems every game has bad looking textures on some objects, not all. On RAGE, the world textures for walls and other inanimate objects like vending machines are so bad you can hardly tell what it is, yet the weapons and the characters look great. Other games like Fallout New Vegas look decent, but the clothing textures are pretty blurry. I remember on my PS3 it looked a lot clearer. On Oblivion, the faces of characters look like somebody took the smudge tool in Photoshop and just blended the color all together, no real detail at all.

Example:

Batman Arkham City
Ambient Occlusion: Yes
AA: FXAA (High)
Detail Level: Very High
Distortion: No
DX11 Tessilation: No
Dynamic Shadows: Yes
Hardware Accelerated PhysX: Normal
Lens Flare: Yes
Light Shafts: Yes
Reflections: Yes
Resolution: 1920x1080

I get literally right around 60fps with VSync turned off at almost every part I can think of.

Sounds like you're getting around the performance of what the 770M should achieve. If you were using the HD4000 you'd be getting ~10-20 FPS. see here: http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-HD-Graphics-4000.69168.0.html

First thing I would do is download latest Nvidia drivers: http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/70187/en-us

If you're getting good performance I wouldn't worry about how the benchmark identifies your part, it's probably just buggy. Which benchmark are you using exactly?
Is the performance in lost planet bad?

Yea you definitely wouldn't have a stable and decent frame rate with integrated graphics. Hopefully updating your drivers should fix the problem. smile.gif

Rage seems to push stuff pretty hard - I have everything maxed out on my rig, and Rage likes to sit around 1.3GB VRAM usage (or more). that, and the texture caching method uses a fair amount of CPU - but I've yet to see it drop below 45FPS.

what's the desktop equiv of a 770m?

Thanks for the responses guys. Drivers are all up to date. Any advice on how to fix the low quality textures or will I be stuck with that?

Well... you can always adjust it in game, run certain programs to help with gaming experience
