Hi, I've recently bought an Asus K55A laptop and it works pretty great. It plays most of the games I throw at it, although there is one thing I noticed. The FPS in lets say Oblivion will be at 74 FPS then go down to 24 FPS for about 5 seconds then go back up. I read up on the Asus K55A and found out it's using the Sandy Bridge and the GPU clock speed is based on the quality of the CPU. The GPU's Mhz can range from 650-1350Mhz with an i5 or better CPU if I'm correct.

I'm just wondering if it's possible to set the clock speed at a constant 1350Mhz because when the FPS drop, I believe it does so to save resources, ect. The lag spikes get sort of annoying though. I'm running on it on the AC adapter, the windows power plan is on High Performance and Intel's graphics setting is on Max Performance. All drivers are up to date.

Asus K55A Laptop
CPU: Intel i5 2450M 2.50Ghz
GPU: Intel HD 3000
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Any help is appreciated greatly!
