Getting the most out of my ASUS G73 ROG

:hello: I'm trying to figure out how to get my notebook to run games as smooth as possible and I have yet to achieve that on the majority of games.

My notebook setup:

I have a brand new ASUS G73 A-1 notebook


17.3" (1920 x 1080) LED backlit


Intel Core i7 720QM @ 1.6GHz (2.8GHz Turbo)


8GB DDR3 1066MHz


ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 1GB GDDR5, DX11 Capable


1TB (2 x 500GB) 7200RPM Hard Drives


Blu-ray Combo Drive

Operating System

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I have just eliminated screen tearing by forcing Vsync and triple buffering with Rivatuner D3DOverrider "I'm assuming the notebooks screen can't keep up with the graphics card"

I'm using direct X 11 but I'm thinking about going down to 9 because I benchmarked 1063 on 9 and only a 430 on 11 and that just should not happen because many reviews state it can benchmark a 1300.

Is their anything I can do to help my fps rate and get a better performance on high end games?

  3. As you may know, the 5870M is a very good card, but much weaker that you would think by the model number. It seems ATI has started inflating the naming of their mobile cards much like nVidia has done for a long time.

    The mobility 5870 is probably somewhere between the 5750 and 5770 desktop cards in performance.
