Hello, I have bought an ASUS $1,200 Gaming Laptop (Republic Gamer)
Processor- Intel i7 2.4
Graphic Cards- Geforce GTX 660M(MOBILE) 2GB
Skyrim sets my game to Ultra High, yet high and ultra have low fps. I cannot figure out why, because this gaming rig tanks all other games. 200 fps on Minecraft, wrecks dead space 3, owns TF2, fucks Black Ops 2, and destroys Hitman. Not so much with Darksiders 3, and war of roses. Any solutions? I payed a lot of money for this, and other gaming graphic cards lower than this can handle skyrim on high graphics just FINE. See you all, I hope someone can help me.

try to download GPU Temp and Core temp and see how hot your GPU and CPU are getting, i'm not 100% certain, but if they get too how they just might throttle them self making your computer unable to preforme as it should, also do you have the "latest" driver? i'm not sure when they added the latest Skyrim preformance changes to the Nvidia drivers, but they have been doing that since the release of the game though

This is the core temperature-
Core #0 50 degrees celcius max is 66 degrees celcius Load is 1-10%
core #1 46 degrees celcius max is 60 degrees celcius Load is 1-10%
core #2 47 degrees celcius max is 59 degrees celcius Load is 1-6%
core #3 46 degrees celcius max is 59 degrees celcius Load is 1-6%
Just an average on the load.

You did not say exactly which laptop model so I assume it has a 1920x1080 resolution screen. The GTX 660m actually has poor performance at that resolution in Skyrim with Ultra Graphics settings (16xFA, 8xAA). Click the below link and scroll about 2/3rds down which is approximately where the Skyrim benchmarks are. Or simply search for Skyrim on that page.

The benchmarks ranges between 28 FPS and 29.6 FPS depending on the laptops with a GTX 660m that were used to benchmark Skyrim I suppose.

Hello, I have realised that I did not have the latest driver. for my graphics card. It runs fine with my high texture custom settings at 60 fps (V-SYNC).
