NVIDIA GTX 670M Poor performance ?

Hi I've been noticing lately that games running on my graphics card are having low fps and causing it to reach temperature caps frequently. I'm using a GTX 670M / 3GB GDDR5 graphics card on the latest 355.23 drivers.

I've ran a furmark benchmark test and gpuz. I'm not entire sure why my results are so supar. I got a 1000~ point result on furmark, which according to research it should be around 4500~.

Any thoughts as to why my results are so low? Here are screenshots of both programs.

  1. if you have constant high temps it could be throttling are you getting good airflow? try putting 2 game cases/movie cases/books on the left and right side to create a gap for air under your laptop and run the test agains to see if you get improved scores. make sure you are using a desk or counter to test this and not a bed/couch
  2. You should also clean out your computer, dust build-up will make temps go up.
  3. Okay I'll try to clean out my fan vent. But could 1-2 years of dust build up really be the cause of this ?

    Would I maybe have to reapply thermal paste to my gpu? This is a laptop so tinkering with the motherboard isn't going to be as easy.

    yes you should clean your laptop and dust can cause high temps, also try my suggestion you may just need a cooling pad, after you clean it
