I got very big problems with my new notebook..

I usually try page before i get the game. So, i tried to scan Tomb Raider (2013): A survivor is born, which is supported by AMD. The page says i can run it on MAX (The green indicator is on total end). When i start the game, and everything is on MEDIUM, i run on 20-25 FPS.

When i try to start Crysis 3, CYRI says i can run it on HIGH, i have 15-20 FPS with LOW settings!

And the last.. I have Saint's Row The Third, which is ALSO supported by AMD.. The page says i can run it on max.. I run LOW with 15FPS max in buildings, 5 - 10 in open world (In city..)


Can you, please, tell me, how is that possible? I have latest drivers, i use both graphics cards, i put everything (AA, Anistrotophic filtring, quality) etc. to PERFORMANCE in AMD Visual Control Center and still don't work.. I have the PC connected in electricity, i don't run on battery, but the FPS is still HORRIBLE. Can anyone, please, give me any advices, how to run games smothly? I am pretty sad, when i see also Crysis 2 lagging on lowest graphics on this computer.. :-(

- Graphic card(s): AMD Radeon HD 8610G + 8670M Dual Graphics (3GB in total)

The 8670M is an extremely weak GPU as far as gaming goes, some benchmark results Here at Notebookcheck so your FPS figures look right with dual graphics. Who called that a "gaming notebook?" The manufacturer, or the sales clerk?

No it won't Your notebook isn't a gaming notebook by any sense of the imagination. it has entry level notebook gaming card. If you could even call it that.

It'll play it on med~low though at 20+FPS. The system requirements lab is way off and always has been on notebook video cards.

I got the 8670m , and let me tell you it's excellent for casual games:Borderlands 1 & 2 , MMMORPGs,and basically stuff like that ( borderlands 2 I run on 720p res with mid to high settings its awesome playable and nice looking ) , but Crysis 3 ...Don't go there .It isn't a GAMING gpu by any stretch of the imagination.
