i got an alienware m17 today it works great but games its a real slow on gta 4 , all settings on low i get 12fps . on dirt 3 i get 15 on low . is there a problem as my friends one works ok he getts 24fps on gta . it has the ati hd 3870 x2 and the intel core 2 quad 9000
Check drivers. I would run latest official posted Dell for that machine... clean install them.
If also lame on-board graphics, be sure games are using ATI cards. Trying turning off Cfx and run on just one.
Check temps on CPU/GPU to be sure nothing is throttling back due to heat.
how do i turn off cfx and it has the latest drivers by ati plus tems are good
Try the first driver on this page:
AMD Mobility Radeon HD 4870, v.8.763-100810a-104118C-Dell, A02
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4870 Driver (8.763-100810a-104118C-Dell). For M17xR1
thank you all i got up to 25 fps on the old driver
Cool. Now find CFx switch and try it both ways.
Might be better to use a benchmark like Heaven to truly compare.
hey, Tesla 1856.
I was wondering if you could help me too.
I have a new AW 17, i7 4700MQ 16gb ram and GTX 780M witrh 4gb ram, running windows ( 64bit) I currently have the latest recommended dell Nvidia drivers installed.
I can play far cry 3 in very high smoothly at over 60Fps without any issues, but i cant get passed getting max 30fps playing GTA 4?
Technically i should be able to play this game in the highest setting with everything turned on without any problems?
the older gtx680m played this game without any issues. check notebookcheck.com
would you know of a fix for this?
thanks for the help
