    RX 540 Laptop lower FPS than normal

    mihai_alex7

      Hi. I bought an Acer A515-41G-F2SH laptop and I'm getting much lower FPS than expected, about 2-3 times lower than my desktop with GT 1030 (should be similar as the GT has the same chip as the MX150, competitor of the RX 540). I installed some old games on it and I'm getting 35 FPS in Assassin's Creed 1 vs 90-100 FPS with the desktop, 25 FPS in Blur vs 60+ with the desktop. I tested 8 other old games and it's the same problem. I generally play them at 1080p max settings as these aren't too demanding games. I also installed a new game, League of Legends and I'm getting 2 times lower FPS. Temps are okay and CPU usage never hits 100% on any core so it shouldn't be a bottleneck, right? I already installed latest GPU driver, older GPU driver from the Acer website, activated "performance" setting to use the dedicated GPU, updated laptop BIOS, set Windows power options to "high performance". Is it a driver issue that is going to be fixed?

       

      Laptop specs:

      Windows 10 64 bit

      FX 9800P Quad Core up to 3.60 Ghz

      RX 540 2GB GDDR5

      8GB DDR4

      256 GB SSD

      1080p display

       

      Desktop Specs:

      Windows 10 64 bit

      i3-6100

      GT 1030 2GB GDDR5

      8GB DDR4

      120 GB SSD

      1080p display

       

      I know the desktop CPU is much better but I'm not hitting anywhere near 100% CPU usage in the games.
