Y500 Problem with Gaming...

2013-02-23, 17:52 PM

I have the lenovo y500 with duel nvidia geforce gtx 650m cards which should be pretty gosh darn good for gaming  but i can barely play some games on low settings. for example i only get 20 fps on low for guild wars 2 and i have to turn the resolution down quite a bit for sleeping dogs to play it on low settings efficiantly.

The driver i have installed is Geforce 314.07 which is the latest one and i do have SLI enabled, thanks for any advice ahead of time!

I just got this laptop a couple of days ago and it looks great. I'm having trouble with games too though. I want to play Guild Wars 2, but this barely runs at 20 fps on lowest settings, anything higher is unplayable. I enabled the SLI for the 650s in the Nvidia control panel, because it was previously disabled. Also, I installed the latest Nvidia driver (314.22). I also tried out TERA and the fps on that is quite slow as well. Does anybody know what the issue is? Could it be possible that I just got unlucky and got bad GPUs in my laptop? I really hope this isn't the case... This laptop should be at least smoking these games on medium settings, but it's not for me.
