I'm so confused about this right now, I have an alienware m17x r3 3d with an i7 8gb rab nvidia 460M 3d card (don't wreck on the computer, it was a birthday present for my 21st, my dad heard it was the best and picked it oout for me). I run games like borderlands maxed smoothly, and the witcher 2 on mostly high smoothly but I' bought GW2 last night, so excited to play it and I'm only getting 20fps on the lowest settings? How can this be possible. On all max I get 10-15fps and I was expecting my computer to max this game no problem, I've never had a problem with games running so horribly for me before. This is just on the tutorial too, not even WvW.
Any tips to get this game running to a solid 30fps on max preferably? I know something is up because my computer handles games pretty well, something must be wrong. I know laptops aren't ideal for gaming, and Alienwares are over priced but if I can near max The Witcher 2 smoothly, I should be able to max this game. Any help appreciated, thanks.
^ this, yea something is wrong.. this game even on max settings isnt crazy demanding on your computer. --- Sooner or later it was going to catch up with you. You'd find that Lady Luck was really a hooker, and you were fresh out of cash. - Max Payne
Every game is programmed differently. Some better than others. You can't just compare game x to game y and expect it to work. Even games from the same company like wow vs diablo.
With that said, my 2 year old Macbook Pro runs this game super fine. --- Top 10 Favorite games of all time (in order): NIER, Zelda WW, Secret of Mana, Zelda OoT, Rainbow Moon, Valkyria Chronicles, DAOC, MAG, Tachyon, Myst
