so i wanted to play world at war on my laptop, i couldn't get more than 40 fps with antialising 2 and worse with more antialiasing, i get better fps with black ops 2, i have no idea what is happening here.
i am aware that cod world at war is an old game but i appreciate any help
my specs are:
windows 8 64 bit
Intel Core i5-3230M (2.6 GHz, 3 MB L3 cache)
ram 6 GB DDR3
AMD Radeon HD 8670M (2 GB DDR3 dedicated)

Is Vsync on?, (on the game settings) If so turn it off.

AA is memory and memory bandwidth intensive. I do not think the cards memory bandwidth is that good being as i believe it is based on an entry level desktop card with a 64 bit memory bus(and people think the 128 bit bus on mid level cards is bad as it is.).

Your best bet is to run the game with AA low or off.

In fact, make sure you're running all your games with MSAA (multisample antialiasing) off. Feel free to turn on FXAA if the option is there, or MLAA or SMAA. Those are very lightweight.

Lol Vsync basically limits your fps to the Hrz of your monitor/screen so your screen is a 40Hrz screen, by turning Vsync off it allows your gpu to run at full potential.

40 would be quite the odd ball.

30/60/120/144(23.xx/29.xx/ect for tv's) are common and back with crt things like 75/80/85 had been common.

The only reason I can see vsync off helping in this case would be

A. They have an 80hz screen(not on any laptop I have seen). Vsync will cut to half the frame rate when it can not keep the screens refresh rate(triple buffering fixes this at the cost of more memory usage).
B. You have a 60hz screen and triple buffering is hitting the memory too hard.

Either way, glad you got a fix.

Yeah it is pretty odd it could be what you said about it halving the fps, but it's fixed :)
