^^Same issue as mine^^ Admins please lock this thread [the one you are reading this on]






Hello,

Im tring to solve a framerate issue on my laptop im reading 72 FPS (capped for heat issues) but as soon as there are more than 10 enemies (which happens) my framerate drops to around 20. my laptop SHOULD have no issues like this considering its hardware. Any suggestions?:

Laptop:

Intel Core i7 980x (desktop CPU)
12 GB RAM
2x Nvidia GTX 580m SLI enabled
OS is an SSD (Patriot Wildfire)
Game is on a Hybrid Drive (Seagate Momentus XT)

Any help is greatly appreciated. oh and i have already updated to last nvidia driver (that added BL2 to the SLI profiles list)

didnt help by disabling SLI (kind of confusing why you would do that). And yes it uses MXM cards so they are upgradable even if they are mobile cards (just have to order them through malibal)

status of those is good...according o the other thread there is a possible coding issue that is causing it. Makes me feel better, didnt think my computer was a bad computer :p
