    Can users check to see if there's a setting in the NVidia driver options to force Dota 2 to only use the better graphics part (420M or the 540M, etc)?
    I can confirm that there is in option to force Dota 2 to only use the 540M in the Nvidia control panel.

    I have the same problem with my Nvidia GT540M. but it improved when I used your suggestion "-nod3d9ex". Before it was steady 30FPS in game then sudden drops to 10fps for a few seconds before going back up to 30FPS. Really annoying even if you're just walking around alone in the forest. I updated my drivers to 296.10. Updated bios thought it was a turbo boost thing. Updated sound card drivers thought the sound may be causing this since I hear occasional stutter sound once in a while. Checked my processes = nothing unusual, checked to see if my optimus is switching to intel to nvidia if the fps drop happen = no its not switching. I can play kingdom of amalur with massive creeps without losing FPS. Is there a solution for this now?
