Battlefield 3 Performance Glitches
hi all, i just purchased battlefield 3 and am having some errors with performance. the game would start up and then launch a game. the first 5-10 mins i would get a rock-solid 55-70fps and then it would just drop down to 20-30fps and doesn't come back up. happens in single player and multiplayer.

have textures maxed and everything else on medium
no difference from lowering the settings

cpu - i7 2630QM
gpu - Nvidia GT 555m 2GB
ram - Corsair 8GB DDR3 1333MHz
res - 1600x900 59Hz
nvidia drivers 295.76 but was getting this error before the update as well

have the gpu overclocked to 749, 1498, 1040
but i still get the error when i disable the overclock, overclocked with MSI afterburner

PSU? Also 555m<-- mobile? I don't think it can handle those settings. Especially if you mean first 5-10 minutes is in menu screen when the game is fully loaded up and your shooting people and your FPS is 20-30 then that is just because the 555m can't handle it.

this is on a laptop
the first 5-10mins is of actual gameplay
i'm using a 120W power cable but have no idea what the battery is outputting. i'm not getting any glitches or stability issues in any other games (crysis, just cause 2, ME3, Skyrim etc.) am getting some freaky physics in red faction - armageddon though

thanks in advance, Larriman

Any overheating? I hear that if certain parts such as CPU or GPU get too hot they throttle the power, thus slowing you down.

no overheating, stays at a solid 58 degress (with a laptop cooler) without the cooler it gets up to around 85-90 so i don't use the overclock without it, i've also tried it without the overclock and i still get the glitch (minus 5-7fps)

stock gpu clocks are 650, 1300, 900 in case anyone wanted to know
just tried reinstalling the game but now the glitch occurs after 10-15mins but still isn't fixed
