That will more than likely have a negative impact on your gameplay, it's best to be conservative as possible with these sliders.

Have you tried using the MTVU speedhack to see if that helps? I can't remember how it responds with this game.

Yes ive tried all the combinations of the sliders and checked MTVU. All seems to solve the issure for several seconds before my FPS drops to 30 again

hmm, can you download coretemp and watch your temperatures at the time the FPS drops happen? As you are on a laptop it could potentially be overheating protection.

MMm yes my Cores temperature range from high 70s to Low 90s during lag.
What else do you got for me?

Your issue is thermal throttling. That is very hot.

Clean out your fan/heatsink, use the laptop on a hard surface, possibly think about getting a laptop fan thing that goes underneath, beyond that there's nothing you can do.

Yah this thing is working on 5 years. I just formatted it and air blasted the heat sink. Time to save up! Smile thanks for the help you two.

You could try replacing the thermal paste, replaced the weird stock stuff with MX-4 on a friend's laptop and it dropped by ~15°c
