I don't know where to ask this question exactly so I thought this was the best place to ask. Please close this question if this is somehow off-topic.
I have a year old ASUS G50VT-X5 and it has the following specs:
- Intel Core2 Duo P7450 (2.13GHz 3MB L2, 1066 FSB)
- nVidia GeForce 9800M GS 512MB DDR3 with PhyX support
- 4GB DDR2-6400 800MHz
- 320GB 7200RPM SATA
I used to be able to play games such as Heroes of Newerth and Allods Online with every setting on high without experiencing any FPS drop when I first bought my laptop. Nowadays, I experience occasional massive FPS drops while playing regardless of the settings (I still experience FPS drops even on the lowest settings possible).
I tried everything I can to increase my laptop's performance (Provide better cooling, update to the latest video card drivers) but no dice.
Is this because my laptop is getting old?
