I know my laptop is not a gaming laptop by any means however, CSGO and Overwatch are both suppose to be games that can run on my system without much problem.
CSGO on low/medium/high settings runs around 40-50 FPS and remains there for all levels of graphics. The FPS does get north of 100 but only in the menus. I have seen from videos and friends that I should easily be able to get north of 80FPS on low in CSGO on my system. In terms of Overwatch I am playing at 50% render scale, 720p, and all low settings and struggle to get over 35 FPS.
I am getting frustrated as everyone I go to ask for help I am told that yes something seems to be wrong but no one can tell me how to resolve it. The laptop as a whole runs well, I keep it updated from viruses, malware etc, daily. It is growing more and more frustrating as I know my laptop can do more and its seems like something is holding it back during gaming sessions.
I am not expecting to run any high end games but older games like CSGO should run fine and they are not. I have updated my drivers, adjusted battery performance, have the laptop plugged into the wall and Ethernet. I also make sure it is very cool.
Any help would be great!
