I recently bought an Acer AO722 with an AMD C-60 CPU which uses the HD 6290 gpu. I have tried playing Team Fortress 2 and only seem to get 15fps with all settings as low as possible. I turned on System Monitor and was surprised that the GPU was barely active. The last two blocks drop off since I had alt-tab'd to check the monitor. The rest of it is all gameplay on a 12v12 server.
I had heard that TF2 is a CPU intensive game. Is it possible that the CPU is limiting my FPS and by reducing things like anti-aliasing and smoke effects I just gave the GPU so little work to do that it gets to slack off? I watched other videos of slower CPU/GPU netbook/laptop combos that seemed to perform smoother and at higher average FPS so I was surprised with the performance of mine.
Thanks. If I need to post any driver or other info let me know.
