Ideapad S145 - Games randomly stuttering/fps drops

2021-06-29, 23:10 PM

Hey,

I have an IdeaPad S145 with I5-1035G1 and Intel UHD Graphics, 8GB RAM. I know it isn't ideal for playing games, but even games that don't require huge system requirements are stuttering and having huge fps drops out of nowhere. For example, I can play CS:GO, but games like Valorant, Warframe and Fortnite, whose minimum requirements for gaming are met, are presenting fps drops and stuttering.

I've tried different solutions found on internet but none of them have fixed my problem. Is there a way to fix this? Is this a settings problem or a problem with the features of the laptop itself? The Ideapad S145 with UHD Graphics can really run such games?

I think the bigger problem is with the fps drops, since this games run smoothly for some seconds between these fps drops. That's why I'm thinking it could be some configuration issue with Windows 10 or something like this.

Greetings @flaulhabe 

 

It would be a good thing to try running or setting the game settings in the lowest standard / minimum game-video settings possible and then see if this might help make any difference on the performance on the device.

 

Regards.

Hey,

I'm using the lowest settings in all of the games. 

What helped me in Warframe, for example, was changing the settings in Intel Graphics Software. Now I can play it without this huge fps drops.

But Valorant, that requires even lower graphics, is still presenting these fps drops. The game is running in 120 FPS, but when I move my mouse or shoot, it drops down to 0 for some seconds, and I still don't figured out why.

Hey, 

I'm still trying solve this problem and I realized that, particularly in Valorant, the FPS drops occurs when I try to activate a special ability or something like this. Furthermore, these FPS drops are occurring at the same time as spikes in "CPU Time", it seems a problem with the render speed in specific situations.

Again, changing the game settings does not solve the problem. When is not down to 0, the FPS runs stable in 60 FPS.
