View Full Version : Performance Question

For some reason I am unable to run the Crysis Alpha on the very high settings. Right now i can only run it on medium settings and only get 35-50 Fps and im using the high performance settings.

Here are my specs:

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601)
System Manufacturer: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC>
System Model: G75VW
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3610QM CPU @ 2.30GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.3GHz
Memory: 12288MB RAM
HDD: 750GB


Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Chip Type: GeForce GTX 670M
Approx. Total Memory: 695MB

Any reason why my laptop is running this slow?

Planetary alignment, perhaps? :D

Are you running any other software while playing (to include any AV packages)? What processes are you running?

I apologize, but I don't have the Alpha. I'm just trying to help from a more generic standpoint.

Well... I'm running 108 different processes while i play, some of these include origin, fraps, firefox and obviously the game.

lol well ofcorse it will run slowly if you have so much running in the background.. Damn i wish i had a key so bad :( I guarantee i could this to run on my fully overclocked G75 at very high or high settings stable at 50 at leassst !

If you have any spare keys or if you decide to share yours it would be amazing :D

Sorry i dont have anymore keys. it didn't even occur to me that i hadn't defragged the disk in about 2 months and i used it everyday at school for about 5hours a day so that would help. also what processes should i end and which should i keep running so nothing bad happens?

Hey mrwolf what do u use to overclock your cpu? and how would i do this to safely overclock it from 2.3GHz to 3.3GHz?

Well ideally you want to have the least amount of processes running and basically you would look for processes that are taking up too much memory and end them, depending on what it is.. Your physical memory should be under 14%.. Fraps, origin, firefox all that stuffs gotta go when u wna play crysis...

Well i dont think overclocking your cpu will make a huge difference to be honest unless the game is particularly cpu bound which i doubt as the other crysis's never really had abnormally high cpu usage.. Despite this, if you really want to overclock your cpu you need to download Intel Extreme Tuning Utility (IETU). Although you should be careful with this utility as some people have had issues where their system crashed and the overclock became default in the bios setting n screwed them over BIGTIME. Never happened to me ive used it alot but jus thought you should know its a bit dodgy..
Anyways about OCing, your system is already able to hit 3.3ghz because it is set to automatically oc itself called 'Intel Turbo Boost' up to 3.2/3.3 from 2.3ghz.. With using IETU to OC your cpu, it will allow you to change your main reference clock that affects your maximum turbo boost figure and also your minimum Ghz which is 2.3 stock. The highest you can OC absolutley safely is about 105Mhz on reference clock which essentially makes your cpu frequency 2.4 - 3.46Ghz from stock clocks which is 2.3 - 3.3Ghz.

heres an example - 13467

Ive tried this and it gave me like +10-15 fps in planetside 2 which is an MMOFPS and becuase of thousands of players it relies heavily on the CPU.

For Crysis i personally think you would benefit from OC'ing your GPU to about 750/1650.

Ok thanks for the help really appreciate it! Now i have MSI Afterburner to OC the gpu do i increase the Core Clock or the Memory Clock. Srry for so many questions im a noob with computers.

11-07-2012, 02:28 AM
Well before doing anything with MSI after burner i would highly reccomend you first enable the on screen display on MSI Afterburner and tick everything ON so you can monitor the temps, usage etc.. Then play a game of your choice for about an hour or sumthing and observe your temperature.. If you can stay below 70ish or 70 stable.. The i would say you can try overclocking your core clock to 720 and memory to 1650 hence 720/1650..
Make sure you keep an eye on temps and make sure u stay below 75ish max.. If you go over like 80 or 90 u will fry your GPU and no more Asus G75 gaming laptop lol so be careful..
Also it is worth noting that every GPU is different, i can OC to about 740 and play games for long times like that with temps of 75 maxx. Others can do more or less so just see how it performs.. If you experience problems in game graphically or artifacts, quit the game and reduce your OC..

As to which processes you can do without, there's always "trial & error"--which is right-clicking the process name & ending it--BUT I AM NOT SUGGESTING THAT YOU DO SO RANDOMLY!!!

It would be much better to do some research 1st. Blackviper, Tweakhound & other web sites can give you a much better idea of what absolutely needs to stay & what you might be able to get rid of--as well as talk you through the process of killing them more permanently. Just be gentle & go slow. I'd suggest making one change at a time. Make the change, see what difference (if any) it makes as you play/ otherwise use your computer for an hour (or a day) or more. Then see about another change. You'll eventually get to the point where nothing else seems to make any noticeable different, or you'll be comfortable with the changes you've already made. Don't push things too far, or you'll just be bringing heartache upon yourself.

& I don't take any advice I get from any of those websites as gospel. Just remember, while the websites' authors might have the best of intentions at heart, they'll not have any part in helping you "fix" a problem that their suggested changes bring about on YOUR computer.

Good luck.
