    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.
