i recently installed nfs most wanted on my laptop which is a dell inspiron 15r se. the laptop came with an intel core i7, 8gb of ram, and duel graphics running the intel HD graphics 4000 and the ati radion HD 7730m
the game just doesnt run properly, iv got it set to 1080p at lowest and im getting 20fps max.
i know its not the laptop because im able to run farcry 3 and hitman absolution on 1080p both on medium with a constant 30 to 40 fps
i did a few checks to see how much of the processing power and gpu power is actually used and it seems like only around 30 or 40% of the power is being used, i can hear it in the cooling fan too. the fan turns on but spins very slowely. iv checked power settings and everything is set to high performance. so this is really my last option before waiting for ea to release a patch which might hopefully fix the problem.
