Hello!

This is my first time posting on these forums after lurking for quite a long time and I appologize if this has been posted in the wrong section.

Today I got my laptop changed because my previous one continuesly crashed and overheated.

The previous laptop is this : HP Pavilion 17.3" Intel Core i7-2630QM Laptop
Heres a link: http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/hewlett-packard-...

I mainly play World Of Warcraft and on that computer and I was able to get 70+ Fps running everything on ultra except for shadows which I put on good.

After I exchanged the computer, I got a better performance machine.

Name of the new laptop : HP Pavilion 15.6" Intel Core i7-2630QM
Link : http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/hewlett-packard-...

When I installed World of Warcraft on this computer, I expected to get atleast 60 FPS running all the settings on Ultra. However, i would only get 15-20 fps running at those settings. I then tried running the game on the same settings I ran the game on the computer. The results we're a little higher, giving me about 40 fps.

My question is, why is this computer providing less fps eventhough the graphics card is better?

Thank you in advance for providing all the information you can!

Have you updated all the drivers for the graphics card and everything else?

There is a different in memory of gpu and resolution. The cheaper one is dedicated 1024 GDDR5 and the expensive one is 2048 on board, which is slower. 1024 is plenty for 6770m, so the faster GDDR5 makes the difference here. Also, the cheaper one, although larger screen, have lower res screen so that is why your fps goes down. In another word, the cheaper one is the better of the two. You shouldn't have change because better performance and cheaper price.

The integrated part is just a glitch, It says its a 2gb ddr5 graphic card, the integrated part is the switchable graphic cards, from Intel GMA to Ati

Well, even with 2048GB GDDR5 6770m, the performance will be unlikely to have any real advantage over the 1048GB GDDR 6770m. The 1080p screen will still make the game run slower than at the 900p screen of your previous laptop. I suggest running the game not at 1080p (try to get as close to 900p as possible) and see if the fps goes up.

1600x900 (on the 17") vs 1920x1080 (on the 15") makes a big difference.

1.44 megapixels vs 2.07, or in otherwords, you'll see around 69% the framerate at identical settings. 70*0.69=48.

Also, about the memory thing, it actually shows on the 1080p model "integrated 2gb" for the 6770M, which may or may not mean it's using shared system RAM while the original one had dedicated 1gb of VRAM. If this is in fact the case, the original one had a faster GPU, due to dedicated VRAM.

Alright, thanks the replies guys, I'll be returning this one again and get the other one. 1080P isn't a HUGE deal for me, I hook up my laptop to a 24" monitor anyways.

But if it's 24" it's probably 1080p as well...
