    AMD RADEON R7 M445 Low 1080P Gaming Performance


      I have a dell inspiron 5567 with the key specs as follows :

      1. i7 7th gen

      2. 8gb ddr4 ram

      3. 2tb hdd

      4. 1080p display

      5. intel hd 620 on board gpu

      6. AMD radeon r7 m445 gpu


      My main problem is the fact that the gpu is not able to handle 1080p gaming well. Infact, games like fifa 18 don't work well in 768p either. Ive updated all drivers and the windows os is also upto date. My friend's laptop with a weaker amd 2gb gpu and 4gb regular ram and i5 can play fifa in ultra without any issues. I did a comparison with the specs prescribed and I found out that, firstly my laptop doesn't read the graphic card as an m445, it reads it as an m440. Secondly, though the memory clock is capable of going to 2000hz , its clocked at just 1000hz.

      ^This is the graphic card I have on board and I'm certain about it.

      Games like hitman are underperforming in 768p as well. I'm really frustrated because I spent a lot of money on this laptop. Please help.

      ^this is the actual m440 and it clearly isn't my gpu as it has ddr3 ram and not ddr5.



      The AMD customer service was so useless. The stopped responding after one mail sigh. Even dell is so useless. I should've just bought another laptop with NVidia gpu sigh.
