Horrible FPS Help
Return to board index
I am not the best with computers, so any help is appreciated! Whenever I play WoW, I always have horrible FPS. In a city, I run about 5-12 FPS, and the highest I see even in a completely dead zone is 35 FPS, never more than that. My WoW system is even set to low, and the only AddOns I use are ElvUI, and DBM. Is there something I can do about this, or is it just my computer not being able to handle it? I am playing on a HP 2000 Notebook and the specs are:
Processor: AMD E-450 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 1.65 GHz
RAM: 4.00 GB
System Type: 64-bit Operating System
My settings are on lowest always and my fps is in the mid teens in town and i can play comfortably. The only time I have any problems is on the Elegon battle. When on the platform my FPS drop to 1 or worse total standstill. Once i get off the platform, its back to normal, no idea why. Only place in game where I have that much trouble.
I am going to say your laptop is woefully under powered. WoW is a CPU driven game, and laptops are notouriously under powered. If you think your FPS is bad in a city, try a 10 or 25 man raid, and now with the 40 man world bosses back I imagine the raid would say pull and your comp would just freeze. I would tell you to increase your ram or some other idea but I think you would be wasting your time with your current CPU. your looking for an intel I5 or the like, comparable amd CPU's would work just as well.
p.s. this comment was for akelderma, I posted under his/her post but it posted below both. kingbeck, without you comps stats, I would say you have the same prob.
Hi Akelderma, first thing I would recommend would be to
make sure your drivers are up to date
. Secondly, you might want to
reset the user interface
to make sure that the addons are not impacting the performance of the game. If you still have any issues with this, you might want to collect your
and attach those to a
for us to review. Hope this helps!
My new laptop was annoying me with 5-12 FPS also. I finally went into the video properties and discovered that the video was set for "battery saving". After I changed it to "performance" it went up to 50-70 FPS.
I'll have to check that out, thanks.
