Hello,

I have this 3 year old gaming ROG asus laptop that is struggling right now playing games and it's starting to become bothersome...
I can almost not play League of Legends, it stutters a lot when moving camera, big frame drops even with medium or medium-low settings, it doesn't change. (Around 20-30 fps on in-game reader but it feels lower even around 15 or so when stuttering).

What I've tried:
Installing latest drivers
Formatting and installing latest drivers

I also did a GPU benchmark (FurMark) and it scored ~1200.

Specs:
Intel i7-4720HQ processor, 8-Core 2.6GHz w/ HD Graphics 4600 Integrated GPU
Nvidia GeForce GTX 950M
128GB SSD + 1TB HDD

Also if relevant I get around 80-85 ºC on CPU temp and GPU around 70 ºC.

Is the Nvidia 950M really that bad or do I have some problem?

Thanks for reading!

I guessed so...

I'll try getting my hands on a compressed air can to see if it helps though.

Feels bad that a 1200€ gaming laptop right now is almost useless in gaming.

EDIT: Nevermindddd league of legends was running on integrated graphics i feel like killing myself... fixed.

Thanks.

Your temps are fine.

"Is the Nvidia 950M really that bad or do I have some problem?"

I think the 950M is way down on the list these days as far as performance.

I don't think it's going to play today's higher end games very well.

Just to give you an idea....a GTX 1060 is roughly 5 times more powerful.
