I have a Dell Inspiron 15 3521 which I bought 2 years ago.
At the time it had great specs for my work but now I've dabbled a bit into gaming and I'm very disappointed by the performance I'm getting vs what I should be. So I looked a bit into that and it seems that I'm running off of my Integrated GPU in the 3427U instead of the discrete AMD Radeon HD 8500M/8700M GPU.
I'm not getting over 25FPS in Fallout on very low settings. I cannot even start Skyrim and when I do, it's choppy as bleep.
Even NFSMW 12 is not going above 40FPS on low settings.
I've attached some screenshots to help you.
