TF2 lags alot when tons of people are around....

Specs

Lenovo z575

CPU: AMD A6-3420M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics ( Quad core: 1.5 turbo-boosted to 2.4)

RAM: 4 GB

OS: Windows 7

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6520G

I can play tf2 perfectly fine at 60 fps while having high textures, low shaders, high models, no shadows, HDR, at 1336x768 but whenever theres tons of people coming through the battlefield and alot is going down I start dropping down to 22-45 fps. Is this normal? I exceed the recommended specs so I can't figure out the problem :/


Help?

And this is with the help of a config to make the game run better.....

    The recommended specs end up placing you in the medium range. The reason your fps drops is because you are trying to load so many models with high textures. The really only way to fix it is to upgrade(Which you cant, laptop) or lower settings.

    What do you mean medium range? Systemrequirement labs tell me I exceed recommended settings already....

    Strange. 2 years ago when I bought the laptop the game seemed to run smooth without any fpsconfigs or the likes, recently I did a clean install of windows and got all my backup stuff as well. The game is unplayable without a fps config and it's still a bit laggy when tons of stuff is going on with an fps config . I wonder if it really is my laptop, or if tf2 is just really unoptimized like many users say it is :/

    Don't have any heating issues either, laptop stays pretty warm while playing tf2, never hot or overheating.
  3. Tf2 is poorly optimized as well. As for medium range, Systemreq says I can max out Bad Company 2, but I can only do medium at 30 fps. It also says I cant run Starcraft 2 maxed out, but I run it everything on ultra at 45. They are usually off.

    Yeah, I can see it being off. Sometimes it tells me I cant even run certain games yet I can run them just fine at very playable frames :p

    Chose your first reply as solution.
  5. Yeah, TF2 is especially temperamental.
