I recently updated my graphics drivers to the most recent and saw performance boosts in some games while others stayed the same or got worse. Bioshock Infinite, for example, became much, much smoother after installing the new drivers, but Planetside 2 is almost unplayable. I'm getting poorer performance on games with the same or lower requirements than Bioshock. It's difficult to tell whether the problem is the card not being powerful enough, the drivers not working as intended, or the game not being optimized well with AMD. Any ideas?
A separate problem - I'm trying to monitor my GPU temps, but all the software I've used so far is incapable of detecting the 7730M. It has no problem finding the integrated 7660G, but it is reading both the CPU and GPU as the same and shows the CPU to be idling at 100C, which is ridiculously high of course.
