Radeon R7 M260 Bad Performance

Recently bought an hp laptop with amd radeon r7 m260 graphics card and quad core cpu, 8gb of ram

 

On games i have been getting extremely poor performance. I struggle to run an 11 year old pc game on minimum settings. Its safe to assume something is not right because i have seen benchmarks of the same system and they can run more recent games.

outside of games performance is poor. i get frequent freezes and slow switching between tasks. for example changing tabs on ms edge takes a few seconds to register.

im very unhappy with my laptops performance and have tried many solutions to fix it, none of them have worked.

 

(solutions i have tried are:

update gpu soundcard, drivers using catalyst and direct from the hp website

update bios settings (from hd website)

i also have the system set to max performance at all times in the catalyst settings

 

If someone could offer a solution i would be very grateful

 

additional information:

im running windows 10 and its a clean install

its a new laptop so i doubt there is an issue regarding cleaning
