GT555M on Lenovo Y570 and Battlefield 3
Hi

I have a Lenovo Y570 with 1GB GT555M and Optimus technology.
My computer has a quad core i7 2.2Ghz and 8 GB of RAM

When I'm playing Battlefield, the gameplay is very very laggy.

When I push the Optimus button that lets the GPU automatically decide which programs to optimize, Battlefield 3 stutters every second when I'm playing it.
This setting:

When I choose the setting that tells the GPU to save power, Battlefield 3 does not stutter but I suffer terrible framerates.
This setting:

Please help!
My computer is new and I was expecting it to be able to handle BF3!

Here's a video of my playing BF3. The FPS dips every second to 1.

Ah, I had this problem when I first got my Y570. Turns out I had to manually go to the website and download new drivers for it. Follow [url="http://www.geforce.com/Drivers"]this link[/url], and under [i]Manual Driver Search[/i], enter your settings, and download and install the drivers.

Of course, I can't be [i]entirely[/i] sure that this will work. My Y570 is an 08622KU, a less-powerful version than yours (An i5-2630QM and 6GB RAM).

But I'm pretty sure it will work.

If not? Then you'll have to stick with the method I was told about before figuring out that I had to update my drivers: Set your Power Plan to [i]Balanced[/i] or [i]Super Energy Saver[/i].

And don't worry: This baby'll be able to run Battlefield like a Man Set on Fire. Just, not without the whole, "falling down and dying" part. /wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />
