Hello! I own Rust for about a month, and since the beginning i had FPS issues.
I currently use a Mid-Range Laptop, which can run most games fine, not at the highest settings, using a Nvidia 2gb Geforce 630m.
I got average ~20fps with graphics preset Fastest and “grass.on false” command, which i find weird since i don’t think this game is that much GPU intensive, but i didn’t complain for the reason the game is still in Alpha.
But, for testing reasons, i decided to change the GPU Rust was using(most laptops come with an integrated card, and a dedicated) to Intel HD 4000 graphics, which is normally way slower than the 630m, and obtained a weird result, with the same configuration before, i was able to get ~30fps average.
I just find it weird that my weaker card can run the game better than my dedicated one.
Here are my specs:
Intel Core i7-3630QM 2.40Ghz
Nvidia Geforce 630m
1Tb HD 5400RPM
Windows 8 64bits.
If someone can tell me why is this happening, it would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.
