Should I be expecting better performance in Dota 2? (i3 4000m, hd4600)
About a month ago I got a new laptop. The computer I bought is the Lenovo Thinkpad L440. One of the reasons I bought it was that I was under the impression that the i3 4000M cpu with it's integrated HD4600 gpu was sufficient to play my favourite PC game, Dota 2 at a good framerate at low settings.
I have been rather disappointed with the performance I have been getting. With the game running at 1600x900 with all settings to their lowest value except for render quality at 100%, I got an average FPS of 37. When I tested the game on highest settings with AA disabled, the average framerate was 27.
This is rather concerning because the Dota 2 benchmark on this site shows an intel HD4000 achieving higher framerates than what I am getting, even though I have a better integrated card and am running at lower resolution and settings than the benchmark.
When I was testing the game, I had the laptop plugged in, the power profile in windows was set to high performance (min cpu frequency at 100% and graphics set to max performance). I have the latest Intel graphics driver installed. Is there any other setting, perhaps in Windows or the BIOS that I may be missing that is hindering my performance?

Well the 4600 isn't better than the 4000. Just because numbers are bigger, not always better.
