My friend has a low end gaming laptop that he has had for a year but i have noticed by the way he talks about his graphics performance it's being run into the ground. He has an i5 laptop with an 2 gt 525m & 6gb of ram. The odd thing is that when he plays a game like team fortress 2 which isn't all that demanding he has to put it on low-mid settings to avoid very choppy framerates. My laptop can do mid settings & it is intel hd graphics. I'm confused about this situation as i don't really have a clue about where to attempt this problem as he lives in a different part of the us. My best guess is a micro-stuttering issue.
If anyone has an idea of what it might be it would be very appreciated.
