    Damn it Alex! :laugh: :toast:

    Alex is right also man. I assumed you would have tested it at lower settings but I didn't ask.

    Have you tried lowering the quality of the game? Resolution and such?

    Don't double post please. Anyway Alex is right. See if that fixes the issue.

    Because windowed mode isn't as demanding.

    A lot of laptops have a switchable graphics setting that can be accessed via CCC if you have an AMD dedicated GPU. Check out this video tutorial. I added a time stamp to skip through the first 2.5 min, which just shows Starcraft II running at way lower FPS than it should. How To Configure AMD Radeon Switchable Graphics - ...

    The prior advice on using the manufacturer vs chip vendor drivers is very noteworthy btw. Most LTs have proprietary software that allows the drivers to function as they need to for the hardware and software that particular model has. It's not an anti noob saftey feature as many assume, and should be respected.
