Hello guys, Im using Lenovo Y510P with the following specs:
I got this laptop from my brother, and i use it to play Counter Strike Global Offensive (CSGO) game. I have seen this laptop getting around 250fps in most of the maps in CS GO, but still I am getting only 124fps in every map with low settings. Can any of you guys suggest any tips to correct this?
Thanks in advance
EDIT: Does installing the OS on the 24 GB SSD affect the gaming performance in any way? My SSD got damaged and there is no SSD in it currently. The is only the HDD.
Solved! Go to Solution.

SSD should not affect gaming fps so drastically.
Are you on win 8.1 or Win 10?
What is your graphics driver version?
Can you monitor and check the CPU and GPU temps?
Did you used to get 250 fps before?

Hello, Sorry for the late reply.
I'm using Windows 10. I had windows 8 in the beginning, i havent tried playing the game on win8 though. Does this affect the performance?
Driver Version: 364.51
Here are the temperatures while the game is running in the background. Both the graphics cards are working fine, since there is hot air coming from both the sides of laptops, and also if i switch off the power, the fps will drop.
No, I never got 250 FPS before.
Thanks, waiting for your reply.

Watching some youtube videos, I can see that people are getting between 80-200 fps on high settings.
The temps of CPU look fine.
(I do not have this game, so I dont know how can I test it on my system)
Can you maybe take a video of you playing the game and show fps with the graphical settings on High?
Check max temps after 15 min of game?
On idle, how much memory/CPU is being used by your laptop - Check Task Manager?
Are you running chrome + other tasks while running this game?

Hey, thank you for those tips. I'll try those and show you the fps soon. But could you please clarify that if using Windows 8 instead of Windows 10 increase the fps? The default OS that was there for the laptop was actually Windows 8.

Well, if it was an OS problem I would think that you wont even be getting 124 fps, but then again i have seen weirder things happen with computers.
Y510p is not certified to be upgraded to Win 10 by Lenovo, there are no drivers to support this. Essentially, this can lead to poor Bluetooth, Wifi, keyboard problems, possibly even GPU driver issues. Sorry I am not helping with the explanation much but Win 10 may or may not be the issue.
Another thing, Are you playing on battery or connected to the power supply?

The reply to your earlier comment:
No, I dont use Chrome or other tasks most of the times in the background of the game. I dont think it affects the performance this much. I mean from 250 to 124 fps.
The video of me playing the game at high settings is below (The video may appear very laggy, but while playing there was not that much lag, but surely there was lag). The FPS is shown at he bottom right corner of the video.:
The Screenshots of temperatures of GPU and CPU after playing is below:
The Memory used by the laptop when idle is below:

Your resolution should be no more than 1080p, that should give you good fps.
I think you are getting pretty much at par FPS with similar laptops -
The following video may show higher fps, but I think there is something specific with his gameplay/settings. Either way, if you read the first top comment and replies, you can see that the video creator says you will get 100+ fps in CS Go.
I think your laptop is fine, just control the temps.

I normally plays on resolution of 1280x720 and still I am getting only 124 FPS. How can the same laptop give 250+ FPS?
So, is there no other ways to increase the FPS? Will changing the OS back to Win8.1 help?
Thank you for your help. I appreciate it. I will try changing the OS for the sake of it.
