I am having an issue with the quality of videos or browser games, I guess.

The issue happends as example at agar.io that its first smooth and later it looks like 50 fps or something like and later it gets better again. The issue also happends at YouTube when I change the quality to 1080p I don't see any differences or any better quality.

I have two graphics card one is Intel HD Graphics and the other one is Nvidia. I've heard there is a Nvidia control panel. I don't have graphic issues ingame. I am using the Chrome browser.

chrome://gpu/ The GL_Renderer results

Whats the problem?

  • Your laptop is probably overheating and then going into a thermal throttling mode. Open it up and clear out the dust or get a cooling mat.

  • As stated, it could be heat related as laptops are so small they heat up fast and heat slows everything down. Another factor could be the video quality that was uploaded on the user's page. Even a 1080p upload can look bad. Streaming wireless can be a factor because wireless tends to be slower especially when dealing with interference that you're not aware of. And the settings on your router could be a factor. Troubleshooting can be an in depth challenge for a person not really delved into technology. But if you Google the things I've noted you can fix it. Try a Cable connection too for start.

1 Answer 1


The quality you see depends on many factors

  1. Video card (though not so much)
  2. Monitor/Display
  3. Internet connection (especially on sites like YouTube)

Almost all video cards nowadays support good quality of resolution

If your Monitor has a lower dpi(dot per inch), you will have to upgrade to see better quality of images on your monitor.

YouTube automatically optimizes the quality of video in accordance with your internet speed. If you have a low Internet speed, You will have to change YouTube settings to increase the resolution.

  • Yes but how I change the graphic card?
