I really have no idea how to fix my problem.. as you can see the games I played there's low graphic games and still unstable fps

maybe because I got 4GB Ram only?

I run games and its having unstable fps already from first to last so im not sure if its my temperature...

Please help..

Well for gta 5 you definetly are bottlenecked by ram, I have a i3 3220 rx 560 4gb, but have 4gb ram just like you. Out of thoose games you named I only played fortnite and it runs at 50 fps mostly with some drops to low 30s/high 20s in busier areas

Are you sure those games are using the dedicated RX 550 and not the integrated R7?

I have the same laptop with the same problems. Please tell me if you've found a solution. It's very frustrating on my part as even my mac can handle dota 2 better than this laptop. Maybe a software problem with amd?

Hello, I have the same laptop with 8 GB RAM, I tried everything, I came to the conclusion that the video card is very weak (Starcraft 2 Medium 1080 20-35 FPS, Ultra 12-28 FPS). Battle for Middle earth 2 runs better with HD 630. I bought this laptop to play some old games, games that I was playing with a laptop with hd 4650 & Core 2 Duo (Low/Med Settings).  Rx 550 Mobile is a very weak card.

Nah bro it's not the video card. It's the processor, it's bottlenecking the

GPU. Acer didn't think this through when making this laptop. It's sad

because I saved up for a gaming laptop and the results I got was that of a

low end laptop.
