This confirms this is not a gaming GPU. That is, games might run but at low settings and even then the performance may be upsetting.
I'd have a chat with those that told you this would CS:GO.
I've just purchased an HP Envy, the specs are as follows:
Intel Core i7
Intel(R) HD Graphics 5500, NVIDIA GEFORCE 940m
Windows 10 Home (not sure if 32/64-bit)
My internet speed is 26 ping/17.5 down/1.18 up.
I try to play online games such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive or Heroes of the Storm, and they lag pretty badly a good portion of the time. Star Wars Battlefront comes out in a week and I really don't want to be experiencing lag for that game.
Any suggestions? When playing CS:GO, I'll keep an eye on my FPS, and it will just randomly drop to extremely low numbers, sometimes even single digits.
Thanks in advance,
