Thanks for this info. I updated to the latest Nvidia driver 301.42, did a clean install in the custom installation options, and used the settings described by the OP. I am running at 60fps capped now with all settings on High at 1080 resolution, so it appears to have helped. Before I was capping out at 30 fps unless I set shadows and clutter density to OFF, and if I wanted to always stay at 60fps, I had to run at 1366 resolution.
The only downside is I am seeing some tearing due to the adaptive vSync, but it isn't that bad. I guess when it dips just slightly and runs at 55-59 FPS, it tears a little. I'm using Fraps (not recording) to see the FPS instead of the in-game counter (ctrl+r).
So, thanks for the information Plax! Seems to have helped me.
This advice has worked out really well for me.
I thought I had the optimus feature on my card (460m) but couldn't find the setting that you mentioned.
Now I am also experiencing the same vSync issue that Xplaced has mentioned but it's so much more manageable to deal with that rather than trying to enjoy the game with the lousy fps I was getting.
I was another disappointed g73 owner up until 15 minutes ago. TY!
For everyone who downloaded the new nvidia 301,42 drivers and got crazy fps issues. There is a known issue with overclocked graphic cards in the 300 driver series.
Best you can do is to either lower your clock to original value of your model or get a driver version under the 300 series, like the 296,10 one and it will run smooth again.
Nvidia are aware of this and quote "We were able to reproduce the 3D clocks issue and have rooted the cause. Schedule fix in next driver release."
Honestly, I was 1 forum search away from getting up and going and buying a new graphics card. I had my doubts that this would work but I tried it as my very last resort. I've been playing for 2 hours straight now without any lag or FPS degradation. This definitely worked for me and I thank you Plax for posting this fix. This needs to be stickied by the forum administrator for those of us who use GeForce 9800's.
I didn't have any issues until 1.0.2b I think, now I have the same stuttering everyone else is. I tried this and it didn't work, unfortunately.
Intel Core i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00GHz
GeForce GTX 560M
8 GB RAM
Windows 7 64-bit
Really nice thread! I followed every step and it worked, not entirely though. At first, I used to have frame issues since the start of the game and a lot actually. Now the game runs perfect (60 fps) for the first 10-15 minutes regardless the area or the number of mobs. The thing is that after that time, my fps drops to 35-40 and on fights I get 10-20 while my graphics card reaches 95 degrees, plus it doesn't get better even if I switch everything on low/off.
Is there any solution to that?
I m using laptop with i7 2670QM @ 2.20 ghz, SLI nvidia gtx 560M (would it help if I tried to turn on the SLI?), 8gb ram, windows 7 64-bit.
these settings on 304.48 do not help fyi.
Lesson to be learned here is Nvidia cannot make a driver worth a lick. The drivers for the whole GTX 460m serious are terrible. All my games run like crap. Next card is ATI all the way.
