You can take a look at your computer’s BIOS to see if you can change it . If you do not have the power saving option, then you can simply type "power options" in the Start menu search box and launch the Power Options dialog.
Does FPS affect aim?
While playing with low FPS will make it harder for you to react to enemy movements, playing on high FPS will not make you a better player.
I tried your tips and the one tip that made all the difference was adding an extra memory stick to force dual channel mode. The Intel HD Graphics benefits only from speeding up the RAM, which happens when the RAM works in dual channel mode . Besides, using ReadyBoost when you have 8 GB RAM is not necessary, as ReadyBoost only improves the performance of computers with small amount of RAM (e.g. 1 GB). Hi Harsh, Intel HD Graphics does not have dedicated memory. The 64 MB shown by Windows as dedicated is not actually dedicated but is the minimum amount of shared memory your Intel HD Graphics is using.
Wait, so if I were to exit the program and only keep it on when I want to adjust lighting settings would that help? I didn’t realize it was ever a problem and have been playing for quite a while with it running. I’ve not really had crashes, but if there’s issues it’s causing that I’m not aware of I’d love to know what they are. Changed a few settings in overwatch jumped from 60fps to 160.
Hi, Intel Core i3 3120m is the faster processor, but AMD A8-4500m has a bit better integrated graphics, so it’s up to you to decide which one is better for you. Hi, that’s right, Ivy Bridge Pentiums’ integrated video is called simply Intel HD Graphics.
I also recommend CLOSING ALL BACKGROUND APPS, though the game does seem to need the SC Launcher to remain open/minimized. Dual channel mode of the memory is activated automatically as long as you have 2 RAM sticks inserted in your PC or laptop.
- That said, Fire Strike is just one test, and not indicative of all games—not by a long shot.
- For discrete graphics-card testing, Canon mx870 driver we are partial to the 3DMark Fire Strike subtest.
- The frame-rate number it generates can be particularly helpful, as anything under 30fps is regarded as being subpar and prone to dropping frames, thus yielding a "jerky" animation experience.
- The Graphics Score, too, is a handy number for comparing one card’s muscle relative to another’s.
- If you vary your settings from card to card, the numbers will be meaningless.

Can updating drivers cause problems?
When these drivers are properly updated, your computer will run smoothly. However, when they have become outdated they can start causing problems that are sure to irritate. Updating device drivers often solves this problem for many people, however, having them updated automatically is key.
Your i5 is an older generation with 4 cores and 3.0GHz base clock. My i5 is a 6 core with 3.6GHz base clock (and could be overclocked close to 5GHz because its an unlocked “k” variant).
This has made the game run smoother and it no longer jumps around. I couldn’t get the graph latency thing to work, it only gave me numbers rather than a graph but it is fine since I reinstalled it.
Junk files, a cluttered Windows registry, and traces of the programs you’ve installed over the months and years are the lead shoes weighing your computer down. Adding new hardware to a system that is bogged down is like adding a new engine to a car that has never had a service and also has a flat tire. If you’re only interested in hardware solutions, you can go to the section Add some hardware muscle. Remember the way your PC performed when you booted it up for the first time?
