Model: ASUS N56JR-EH71
CPU: Intel i7-4700 HQ 2.40 GHz
GPU: Geforce GTX 760m
RAM: 12.0 GB
OS: Windows 8.1
Resolution (monitor) 1920 x 1080 with a 60 Hertz refresh rate.
Shadow of Mordor - Highest settings: 24 FPS
I have done the following:
Got my battery plan on high performance.
Updated GPU drivers
Regularly use CCleaner to clean up files, occasionally defrag.
Made sure my Nvidia settings were set for performance.
I close down unnecessary programs before gaming.
NOTE: Whenever I check using taskmanager, nothing but the disk ever gets close to 100%.
I try to play Starwars Battlefront and sometimes it is smooth, other times it is terrible. I do not have it anywhere near full graphics, and I assumed this would make it 60 fps at least, but no. Other games like Warframe suffer as well, though Warframe only occasionally drops to the 20s in FPS for a second and then goes back to 40-50.
Last time I was having problems I am pretty sure it was dust, since I dusted and it rectified itself. However, I have dusted the vent many times and no change this time around. I have not taken the laptop apart to dust it because I have never done such a thing and am afraid of not being able to put it back together.
Suggestions? This is driving me crazy. Shouldn't this laptop perform better? Or am I expecting too much?
