I have a:

AMD RADEON HD 8970M 2GB
AMD A10 5750 @ 2.5GHZ
8GB RAM

I have been getting horrible performance! I have seen the 7970m on other laptops out preform this laptop easy. I have it plugged in on the Optimize performance option in the AMD control panel. I played Resident Evil 6 on high at 60FPS easy. With some hickups. Now here comes the bad part.
Bioshock Infinite (Medium) goes at 60 then hickups OVER AND OVER to 14 FPS
Hitman Absolution (MEDIUM) Goes from 60 to 38 in seconds
Splinter Cell Blacklist (LOW) oh jesus don't get me started on this (30 - 20 FPS)

Cant EVEN RUN at 60!!! Like what the F***!
I understand that the CPU bottlenecks the GPU but it can't be THIS BAD!
I bought this thing from CyberPower PC.
No NVIDIA fan boys, all I want is help

Hi there, few upfront questions if you don't mind...

1. Is your laptop notoriously hot? If so, it might be that your laptop is overheating and automatically throttling

2. I know this sounds primitive, but is your laptop set to "high performance" mode?...trust me. I have done stupid stuff like that..

Thanks for your answers
