View Full Version : Fluctuating Framerate and GPU Usage

12-15-2011, 03:38 AM
Apparently, my laptop cannot even handle Modern Warfare 2 at Ultra settings and it is laggy ( not to the point where it is unplayable, but the the stutter and tiny lags). I have tried Throttle Stop, but not much of a help. Once in a blue moon i would get this artifact thingy :


heres the video on what's happening. oh god.

would appreciate some help :(

apparently, i have found a temporary solution, changing the NVIDIA preference to balanced instead of Quality.

but i dont think this should be the solution as this machine should be able to handle at least MW2 on Ultra

Yo kailist0,

What is the model of your ROG laptop? Tried updating to the latest driver yet?

these are my specs ASUS RoG G53SX-IX042V , i7 2670QM-2.2GHz , 16GB DDR3 ram , 640GB HDD 5400rpm , NV GTX 560M 2GB DDR5 128 bit. i was using the latest driver. no difference even on the old and new drivers.

today i did a clean install and i was actually able to play on ULTRA settings BUT with all the options off (shadows, depth of field, soften smoke etc) . When i on the options it will stutter and lag. anyone here plays MW2? were you guys able to play on ULTRA with all on? i remembered that i had no problem when i first got the laptop. if i change my preference of NVIDIA to balanced then, the artifacts will appear again if all options are on.
