Is my laptop getting bottlenecked?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a dell inspiron 3179 with a intel HD615 and a core m3 7Y30. I have csgo on the lowest settings( not including the properties since i havent done that yet). I think my laptop is getting bottlenecked because im getting a constant 20 fps with occasional dips and spikes to 35+ frames. My cpu usage is around 50 to 70% with my graphics at 10 to 40%. My cpu is averaging 0.8ghz with the base being 1.6ghz and 2.6ghz at max. I think its the cooling since the cpu said it was getting passively cooled but i dont know how to increase cooling without having repercussions since im new to pc's and laptops.

Thats relatively normal since you are just using the intel integrated graphics on a laptop.

Both your GPU and CPU are not designed for gaming, and yes it will be thermal throttling because of the passive cooling. It was passivley cooled by Dell because they didn't expect anybody to play games on it


AMD Ryzen 3 3200G / Sapphire R9 290X / 16gb (2x8) Kingston ValueRam @ 2666Mhz / Gigabyte A320M-S2H / Kingston A400 120GB M.2 SSD / WD Blue 2.5" 1TB HDD / Cooler Master MWE450 / Aerocool CS-100 / Dell P2210 1680x1050 @ 70Hz (OC)

That laptop isn't really meant for gaming, even if you somehow provide additional cooling the components inside aren't capable of a giving you an enjoyable gaming experience, unless you enjoy Solitaire. 😛
