SimCity running slow.

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

So i bought this game and tried to play it on my 2 year old samsung laptop since it should be able to run it. But nopes. It's really slow and everything happens with a huge lag. So i started up my 9month old Asus G74SX Gaming laptop thinking this comp can run everything if not on full atleast on low specs. But nopesy, not working. Super slow on this too. Any ideas on what i could do?


E: Forgot to say that changing graphics settings has absolutely no effect at all.

E: Forgot to say it's slow right from the start, like when i get to the start menu thingye, it's allready slow. So everything is lagging.

Probably not your laptop, but the new performance bug that came with patch 1.5. Most guys with Nvidia 5 series cards are having issues.
