I don't understand the low performance of this game. My laptop comfortably exceeds the minimum requirements, though I get max 25 fps with everything on low on 1366x768 res. I made sure I ran it with the dedicated GPU in nVidia's tool, though I still get 20-25 fps. Any thoughts?

My settings are near max (no Ubersampling) and I have a near constant 60fps, it fluctuates anywhere in between 30-60 during dialogue and places where a lot of stuff is happening at once, would turning AA off help it stay at a constant 60?
