    Greetings!

    I have big performance problems on my Lenovo z510a laptop.
    Look at this scene:

    All the settings are set to minimal. The only thing which might affect performance badly is my 2560x2440 resolution, but it isn't the cause of the issue. That's my native laptop resolution (1366x768):
    https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=767894055

    My fps jumps between 0-7 on both. I'm sure my discrete video card was selected and my power settings were set to high performance.

    I would like to hear if GSC developers are looking into this issue and when it may be solved.
    My dxdiag is attached, I can give you any other information about my soft/hardware if needed.

    Thank you

    P.S. here's my save file, if it can be useful:

    UPDATE.
    After updating the video drivers the issue has got resolved. Sorry everyone for disturbance and thanks for suggestions.

    Yes, I made sure all my settings were set to the minimal values. Updated the first post attaching a save file.

    Looking at your screenshots it appears you are using 3 ai's its possible this is the reason. AI is likely to use alot of cpu resources. Have you tried only 1 ai?

    My overall experience doesn't change a lot. With one AI my fps is ~20 at start of a game, but in 1 hour it drops to 5-10.

    Does this happen other games? this could be a overheating issue by the sounds of it.

    No, it does not. I play Starcraft 2, for instance, and it works well, showing me better quality graphics.

    Its because your primary graphics card isn't activating when you launch the game, so its all running off your processor. Try this:

    From NVIDIA Control Panel
    3D Settings->Manage 3D Settings
    Tab "Global setttings"
    Preferred Graphics Processor
    Select : High performance NVIDIA rocessor

    It worked for me.

    Did you at least try the steps I listed?

    Yes. I also tried applying these settings for specified cossacks.exe app and launching it with manually selected graphics card (via Windows context menu).
