8600m GS and Assassin's Creed

Greetings

I got myself a new laptop recently ... a HP dv9734tx which has 3GB of RAM and a Geforce 8600m GS with 512 MB. I know the 512 MB does not matter, but to be honest, I expected a bit better out of this card.

I tried running Assassin's creed with most settings either 1 or 2 and I'm only getting a meager 10-20 fps, mostly closer to 10. Is this graphics cart that bad or is it juts a driver problem?

I installed the drivers on the HP Website after cleaning my stock drivers with driver sweeper. Any pointers as to what I might be doing wrong would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

May I know the version of the drivers that you are using? And if you are running on Dx10 or Dx9?

I'm having an 8700M equivalent card and it doesn't manage newest games too well. As your card is about 50% weaker I'd say it's mostly your hardware.

Run Assassins Creed in dx9 mode. Visually its the same as dx10 but you get better performance out of it! I used to have an 8600M GS and its an ok card but thats it!! Try the 179.28 driver as you can OC with that, but I don't recommend OCing in laptops.

I notice you now have a 9600 gt. I am considering exchanging this for something better. How do you think the 9600m GT DDR 2 measures up?

I'm sure it's a hell of a lot better than the 8600m GS but how does it measure up against the 8600m GT DDR3 (In the XPS 1530 i mean)

It would be great if you could tell me how most games perform on the 9600m GT.

Thanks in advance
