I was trying to play Mirror's Edge on my new Win 10 Laptop with
1. i5 6200 2.3 GHz
2. 4 GB GeForce 940M
3. 8 GB RAM
The game was running on highest settings, res 1366x768.

The game runs just fine, until there is a chase, and then the game goes extremely choppy, its like tearing between the frames, but I have vsync on, the game seems to run smoothly, maybe some frames get skipped or something like that. I can run FIFA 13, NFS Most Wanted 2012 edition, Dead Island and Assassin's creed on highest settings without any problems. Also my PC specs are well above the required ones so theoretically it should run fine.

Is it some problem with the game or with my PC?

  • @Timelord64 Whoa buddy are you saying that a 4GB GeForce 940M is NOT ENOUGH to run Mirror's edge? Then how come it can run games that demand significantly more graphical processing power? My PC is not at all short of specifications of running the game.

  • @Timelord64 and that's 4GB of VRAM not 2

  • @Timelord64 Moreover the game runs smoothly on a rooftop chase (where there is smoke, buildings, obstacle plus people shooting at me) and then lags in a nearly empty room. Doesn't make any sense... There's no point in putting this question on hold.

    @Timelord64 With Nvidia cards you have to specify the PsyX processor in the Nvidia control panel. In some instances it will default to the CPU. There are several forum threads on it but a comment is not the place to discuss them.

    Exactly the same happens on Batman Arkham Asylum with physx turned on.
