I have been having hardware issues. Now I don't know where the issue is arising exactly that is why I am reverting to you all.
Recently, I have started gaming on my laptop. The specs are below. If you need and more info that could be helpful let me know.
My issue is that there are some games that run great on low specs and others terribly. I feel that my second GPU is not kicking in when it is supposed to. Or if it is there might be another issue.
I play World of Warcraft without any issues on medium setting (All blizzard games for that matter). On Steam, I play Insurgency on medium to low graphics at around 50FPS and also Dying Light on low.
Now my issue is not gaming as per say. My issue is that i do not understand how Portal 2 and Borderlands 2 does is unplayable compared to the other games that are resource hogs ( can are playable with my config).
Please help me figure out if there is an issue or is my laptop just not sufficient for gaming (not harcore but casually).
If there are any tests that i can run or and programs that can analyse my rigs performance please let me know too.
Thanks to all of you out there that will take the time to look into this request.
