Windows 7: Random FPS drops

06 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Random FPS drops

Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. So the thing is, I'm playing the game called - Prince of Persia 2008, game runs perfectly in huge, very detailed areas and then I get FPS drops in less detailed, small places. This must not be happening, I have all the drivers up to date. Same happens to some other games as well.

I'm using new Asus laptop with these specs:

Intel Core i3-2350M, 2.3GHz
Display Adapters: Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000 (Integrated) and NVIDIA GeForce 610M (using this one usually)

Fans are working properly, there is no dirt inside the laptop. It doesn't overheat at all, stays stable at 70C to 80C.

Haven't tried anything to fix this yet, any ideas what the problem can be?

I don't play that game nor I play online so I can't help much there... I can only tell you that the game is From Ubisoft and their servers are constantly on the fritz.

The problem may not be you but them... you'd be wise to go to their forums and check before you go crazy changing things on your PC.

update your game, search for the latest patches that may help. If you are still getting bad framerate dont sweat it because its mostly the game fault and poor optimization example tribes ascend, black ops
