Why are my animations laggy and slow on my laptop? AMD Turion tl-56 and HD 3200 with 2 Gig Ram.
Too much useless animation and effects activated in Unity... Unity3D makes the system extremely slow but only low Graphic Card and/or can actually reproduce the lag and slow animations.
I am in the same case as you because I use an Asus 1215N with a Dual Core ATOM processor and an Intel Graphic card since the Optimus doesn't work natively...
But you can still do some configurations to help a little bit with the problem like this :
When using Unity-3D:
And I think it is all you can do (for me even Unity-2D is slow so I think it is the fault of my processor... even if this problem of slowlyness doesn't occur neither in Gnome-Shell or Windows (but the last one is probably due to the fact that the Nvidia Optimus works and on Linux it doesn't....)
Hope this helps.
