Unplayable on Alienware M14X R2
22.01.2013 @ 10:19 #1
Intel Core i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40 GHz
8 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M (drivers updated)
1600 x 900 Resolution
Windows 7 Home Premium Edition, 64 Bit Service Pack 1
I've seen systems the same as mine on youtube running this on Ultra with 30 FPS. I checked with MSI Afterburner and running the game I was only getting 157 MHz Core clock. After overclocking and turning MHz up to max I got 242 MHz with 98% GPU Usage. Is this the max I can get? Surely it should be using more than that. I don't know much about overclocking as I've never done it before. Any help would be very much appreciated.

I hope that this is your problem
Edit: I think the low clock-readings is because you were running on the i7-GPU, and thus the 650M downclocked alot (like they usually do in desktop mode) and didn't respond well to overclocking.. If it didn't chew away on the game, it would lower it's clockspeeds to save power.. - But I could be way off here, don't know much about clockspeeds in laptops

I had a similar problem a year ago with my Alienware M17xR3 (nVidia GTX 580M): all my games were running smoothly except my new TW2.
I called the tech support : they told me to reinstall all these recently downloaded drivers in that sequence: bios, intel chipset, Alienware Bios, GTX 580M, and nVidia Bios.
Hope it would help...

Make sure that witcher2.exe is on the list, not only Launcher.exe.
