I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Z710 with a Nvidia 745M (2GB) graphics card inside. When checking the cards performance online, it shows that games like Planetside 2 should be working on average graphics options. But when I try running the game on lowest graphics, it stays at around 5-16 FPS only. I read that this system has Optimus technology. Is this technology the reason for the FPS drops? Or is there a way to bypass that, since the graphics card itself is powerful enough to run the game an programs and games.
