Victus by HP 16.1 inch Gaming Laptop PC 16-d1 (53F52AV)
Microsoft Windows 11


I have just bought this laptop, absolutely brand new, just some days ago. i've set it up and dowloaded a game to try the performance of the pc, but it didn't go very well. I dropped basically every in-game video setting to low (occuping approximately 1,5 MB of the 4 available of VRAM), but it kept dropping down in fps very frequently. from 120 or so, straight to 30-40 for a fraction of a second and then up again.

I have checked on nvidia control panel and the gpu selected for the game is the dedicated one, not the integrated.

the laptop was connected to the wall, i wasn't playing on battery.

The problem started from the first moment i loaded the game, NOT after a while, somaybe it's not a ventilation/temperature problem, but who knows.

I know for a fact that spec-wise i have a strong machine that maybe doesnt have a top GPU, but it should be able to perfectly handle games at high stable fps when I turn video settings on low.

I welcome any help or experience on the matter, especially if from hp support whom I haven't been able to contact directly unfortunately.

Thank you very much.

I an not really sure what the problem but I could suggest something.

It's probably optimus glitching out and switching between gpus in random. Probably...

HP Recommended

is optimus something built-in? cause i thought i had to download something to make it work (and i avoided it on porpuse) but maybe i'm wrong and it's something that is always there.

Anyway i don't know how it could be that, since i have selected the dedicated graphics card while playing the game, in the nvidia control panel.

Ok, sorry i guess.

also note that any big delay between question and answer is mostly due to different time zones, so sorry for that.
