    Hello,

    I tried to play the new NFS most wanted on my laptop yesterday and i was disappointed with the performance :(
    I put all the settings on high in full HD resolution and the fps fluctuates a lot between 38-60. this is obviously not good for a racing game if you want a smooth experience. then I put all the settings to low and still have lot of fluctuations.

    is there any way to lock down the fps? I don't mind playing at a lower fps, a constant 40 fps is a lot better than this horrible fluctuation....your help is appreciated :)

    SPECS:

    CPU: 3720QM
    GFX: GT 680M
    Nvidia driver: 306.97

    are you on the latest beta drivers? Vsync on? well, no wonder, it was just being announced. it may just require some better drivers to work properly!

    I am not exactly sure....i think the driver number is 306.97..or something like that. I don't think there is a Vsync option in the graphic settings though.

    No fps lock settings ingame. You can edit the config file, but there's only a lockto30 option. Poor optimalization.

    To set maximum limit for FPS, use Bandicam. It's primarily a video-capturing program but I use it for FPS limiting. Hope it helps.

    I just had a few races and the performance is terrible on 7970m clevo 150EM with enduro, same old issue again. Fps in some nigt races are dropping down to 20 and lowering settings even to 1280x720 averithing low doesant improve them.

    It's not an enduro issue. I have same problem, and umkc with his 680m also.
    We will have to wait for a patch i guess :(
    ( and plz add more views, only outside and in front of the car is horrible ).

    It has to be either a driver issue or the game news some updates.
    I have a Desktop 670 FTW and I get random stutters

    I grab this from another forum: Not even on a 3930k @ 4.7 with 680 4GB edition SLI can you achieve 60FPS on max settings.

    this game is harsh on the gpu, my 7970m has to be at stock clocks otherwise the game crashes my pc, especially when burning the tires and creating many particles instant crash. Never had this much stress on the gpu till this game
