ASUS G73SW bad FPS drops playing League of Legends.

Hi,

I have spent allot of time these last weeks trying to sort my problem out. I get bad FPS drops playing league of legends. I installed throttlestopper tried diffrent graphics settings, I have done a complete reinstall on Windows and the game.

My FPS goes like 65 -> 125 -> 152 -> 9 -> 65

I have also noticed that my sounds is strange it works everywhere just fine but when playing LoL it sometimes echoes it can sound like this:

"Welcome to summoners-summoners-summoners-summoners-rift-rift-rift."

Anyone else who suffered from this issue and managed to get it working? I have uninstalled P4G or whatever that app was called.


This is so frustrating, hope someone out there can help me.. Spent so much time trying to fix it myself 😞


Best regards

I have tried both and made sure me processor is running 100% I even set the min to 100%. I get back to you on the post to see wwhat is taking up the power in taskmanager. (If anything.)

Here is a picture of my taskmanager resource monitor during gameplay. There is nothing that takes up much memory active the CPU was at max 20% But as you can see on the picture the disk seem to be spiking, and those spikes seem to be at the same time as the FPS drops. Think this might have anything to do with the problem I suffer from? If so is there anything to do about it I have the M28 drivers installed now, they seem to be the latest.

As you have mentioned earlier, it seems that the latest patch is the big issue here.
So if some of these suggestions do not fix the problem, it seems that you have to wait until there is a new patch that fixes the problem.

Alternatively (if possible), is to uninstall the patch*and let the game work without the update.

I'm not sure, and now I am out of ideas about how to fix this issue 😞
I can see that you are not alone with this issue, and the patch is the issue.

And searching on google is a downer, since you only get to the LoL forums (almost) and they complain to the support without any good feedback -.-

Yes I guess so. Still so many can still run the game just fine. That makes it confusing. Much thanks for all the help you given me to bad we could not solve it. I read somwhere on this forum of another guy who had trouble with FPS drops and it was his HDD that made it. But if thats the case I guess its strange that it would happen just now by christmas and not before..?

Well LoL is badly coded and as you say support is a joke so I guess thats the most likly source of error, at least now all of my drivers are up to date.. 🙂

Hehe, I'm glad you got something good out of this experience 🙂

And to answear your question, it could be faulty HDD, that have bloomed lately and that's why you experience the FPS drops now. So you could check if the guy you talking about got his issue fixed.
But I would stand for the issue with the patch and let us hope for the developers soon will release a new one 🙂

You have ThrottleStop set up to do basically nothing.

If you want it to try and control CPU throttling then try checking the two different Clock Modulation boxes and set those to 100.0% and also check the Set Multiplier box and make sure that is set to Turbo.

Now check the Log File box and go and play a game so you have an accurate record of your CPU's performance. Upload ThrottleStopLog.txt to www.mediafire.com and post a link here or email it directly to the ThrottleStop author. Remember to exit ThrottleStop before uploading or sending the log file so all data can be written to it.

CPU throttling might not be the source of your problems but it needs to be investigated further. The G73SW has some known throttling issues so you need to have a good look at the log file and know what to look for to figure this out. Provide lots of data while your computer is throttling and dropping the FPS to a crawl.

Hi,

When i changed to the settings in Throttlestop as you wrote It felt like the game was moving along little smoother. But still not good. Anyways I have done what you asked for and here is the logfile hopefully someone out there understands it better then I do. 🙂

I hope this works have never used Medafire before.

I have also attached new images to this post how my Throttlestop 4.0 is setup now.

I am very greatful that you guys take your time and help me since im pretty much stuck.

Your log file does not show any CPU throttling issues. You can also try logging the GPU speed with the GPU-Z program from TechPowerUp. Have a look in that log file and make sure the MHz numbers are not sagging down while gaming.

Your temperatures look good. You might want to look into overclocking your GPU to get some more FPS out of your laptop.

Try running some benchmarks like the 3DMark series so you can compare your results with other users. Laptops are not as powerful as desktop computers so maybe your expectations about how smooth this game should play are not realistic.

Hi all!

I am running my GPU on 800-1600-1600 during gameplay it goes up to 60C so I dont think GPU is throttling, I use GPU-Z and Nvidia Inspector. Im fairly convinced that the problem is at Riot who makes the game. So many seem to have same issue on diffrent laptops. I am still glad I got this problem, thanks to it I have found this forum and learned how to update bios, clear PC / Update all drivers, overclock both CPU and GPU and tons of other things about computers which is better then spending time playing a game. Also when you get into it its really fun!

Thanks all of you who took the time to help me out, this is a great forum!
