Since I'm sure a bunch of us are playing this primarily on a laptop, I thought it'd be a good idea to have a dedicated thread for tweaking the game to get the best performance out of our smaller machines.

I'm playing on an ASUS G53JW with a GTX 460m (1.5gb vram) and I'm getting some pretty terrible performance. I've got settings on a mix of medium-high at 1080p. Updated to the newest nvidia beta drivers, uninstalled 3D vision, and it doesn't seem like I can get this to go very smoothly. I'll turn down the resolution if needed, but I should at least be able to hit 30-40 fps on this gpu.

Anyone else having better luck or similar problems on their laptops?

yup i'm having similar results. I can't play this game at my native resolution of 1680x1050, terrible fps.

Running the game at low most stuff disabled at 1280x800 getting roughly around 28-35fps, i'ts pathetic to be honset.

I haven't even visited into a town yet.

My specs are:
Intel i5 460m
ATI Mobility Radeon 5870 1GB DDR5 (with Catalyst 11.5)
6GB DDR3 RAM
Windows 7 64bit

On high settings without SSAO and Anti-Aliasing my framerates are pretty choppy and inconsistent. Its perfectly playable but generally my FPS is a bit under 30fps in open areas and maybe 30-40 in indoor areas. I'm even playing on 1600x900 to give it a bit of a boost.

I am in the same boat. Getting choppy performance on my HP Envy 17. I just unistalled the game - better wait for the patches to come out, hopefully improving game's performance. Until then, I am not even going to bother.

P.S. This is the first and the last time I am pre-ordering a video game, since being an early adopter didn't provide me with any benefits, just the headache.
USE 275.27

jesus christ, you guys act like you have no idea about computers.

This is only relevant to Nvidia GPU owners. Those with ATI are still left out cold (for now) :D
Intel Core i7-2720QM
8GB memory
Windows 7 64 bit
NVIDIA GTX 485M
Running at 1920 x 1080

I only had a chance to run it for about 30 minutes before heading to work, but I put it at high settings and it played smoothly. Haven't tried ultra yet, but I suspect that won't be fluent enough to be worth it.

AMD are pretty lame with drivers btw, have fun waiting.

also lol at people buying gaming laptops
Have a 285m, an i7, 4GB of Ram and am also not getting great FPS.

Playable though. Have a mixture of medium settings/some high and a lot of stuff disabled (AA, SSAO, V-Sync, motion blur, depth of field).

In the first village just now - getting about 30 FPS just about there, occasional drops to 26 but 50FPS in any caverns/dungeons so far.

Opening scene was a little chuggy though - must have been all the guards rendered at once.

Updated to the new Beta drivers released today and little to no improvement noted. Also uninstalled 3D drivers to no avail.

Hoping CD Project add a little something in a patch (once saw a 75% performance increase due to a patch with Dirt 2 so I can dream for a similar thing here....)
Hopefully I'll be able to install it in a few hours on my MSI GT725

Yeah, ATI(now AMD) drivers suck worse under linux(godawful video playback) and even act up with some windows apps in specific and repeatable instances. This nb was my first ATI product in a LONG time and my last even IF they were to manage to cough up a better GPU arch than nVidia again.

I really only got this one as with the 48XX series of ATI mobility GPUs were IDENTICAL to the desktop versions just with their core/RAM clocks cut back a bit while the nVidia mobile GPUs were severely castrated v. their desktop counterparts. ATI went back to castrating their mobile parts as well after the 48XX series...

Yeah, that was the main reason why I unistalled the game altogether - I knew I would have to wait a while for ATI to release a patch. Luckily for Nvidia users, they are pushing BETA drivers already.

Also, being a game design student, I am required to have a laptop with a decent GPU. In addition, gaming laptops consume less electricity and take way less space than a dedicated "battle station", which are important factors when you live in a tiny apartment with your girlfriend. Other than that I would have never considered a gaming laptop.

take a look at this idiot, next time you will read what we've said before opening that girly mouth of yours, otherwise you might feel a bit pain.

hint for the idiot: were using older drivers, we have disabled 3dd
don't use older drivers and expect good performance moron, I thought people learned from DA 2 when people were getting 10 fps with 580 sli.

use new drivers or stop bitching.

hmm laptop and gaming you'd think they would go hand and hand....NOT!!!

They dumb down graphics for consoles to make them run better thats why most games look awful and a battery powered laptop is suppose to give you flight-simulation graphics...

I'm unplugging my Cray computer NOW.

Pre-order for the price break or extra content?? What are you gonna teach em. When TW1 first came out most machines crawled on the floor...only till years later when technology caught up was it accetable!!

A: started with 275.27 DRIVER
B: rolled back 1G
C: rolled back to stable WQL

no difference what so ever.

btw let's hope in the future one is required to write their home adress before they post on a forum, would make things so much easier.
