Hey all ! So I'm having a bit of trouble, I've purchased a Samsung 3005VA notebook, but lately I'm getting very low Fps in all games, in Iron Front I get about 10-15 FPS same for practically all games, even though I get higher Fps on my older rig, I am computer savy but I'm just really frustrated about the given situation because the notebook was not cheap, I've searched the web far and wide and I've found nothing that helped so I'm posting here to see if there is someone that has had the same situation as I did and managed to fix it or someone more computer savy then I am !

Notebook Specs:

Intel I7 2670Qm 2.2Ghz turbo boost to 3.1Ghz 4 CPUs 8 Threads
Nvidia GT520MX 1GB overclocked DirectX 11
6GB DDR3 RAM
Windows 7 Home Basic 64 Bit

Older Desktop Specs:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+ ( 2 CPUs) 2.6GHz
Nvidia GeForce 9500GT 1GB
2GB DDR2 RAM
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit

Check the power settings?
I never had it but I've read everywhere to turn off Hyperthreading.
I'm guessing you don't have any big internet security software since you said you're computer savvy.

Power settings are set to High Performance as always, I can't disable Hyperthreading since I have a very limited BIOS for some reason, even though I'm computer savy, I still take precautions and I'm running Kaspersky Internet Security 2013.

I would turn off all other external runnign programs when you are playing, even the antivirus, if that dont help then Im going to assume that its your notebook,
ideally this type of game needs a desktop pc to run efficiently. Iron front is basically a mod for Arma2CO so whatever you get in Arma2Co for performance should almost be similar,\ so my suggestion is test in Arma2CO and see what you get and then test Iron front in comparison if the same then its hardware/software related.

If needed I can ask a friend of mine who is a freelance computer tech, he runs his own business building, repairing, and upgrading computers,
hes been helping me this past month with a new computer I already built but not ready yet so Im sure he can help you but do those tests and things first and see what you get.

By "lately" do you mean you've been getting good performance before? That Nvidia GT520MX does have 1GB but it's GDDR3 and only 64 bit. I would expect 15fps and lower on IF with that. No offence.
Have you installed any large files lately, like games? I learned Arma based games love to be in a minimal fragmented HDD. Try Defraggler if you've moved large files lately.

In his OP he listed 2GB DDR2 RAM, so if his GT520MX requires DD3 then he has the wrong ram.

I usually only have Steam and my anti-virus running, I defrag, registry clean, registry fix, etc my computer regularly, I get slightly higher FPS in Arma 2 but I know that Iron Front is sometimes a bit more heavy when it comes to its maps compared to Arma 2's, I have the DDR2 RAM on my older desktop which has the GT 9500, I have 6DDR3 RAM on my laptop. I wasn't expecting to get 40 or 50 FPS in-game but what troubles me is that my desktop which has older and and inferior build, can run most games in the same setting as my laptop but with higher performance.
