    I have a laptop running:
    x64 based Windows 10 (v.1607 accord to winver.exe)
    AMD A10-4600M APU with Radeon HD graphic card
    6 GB Ram
    i fairly sure DirectX is up to date.

    and yet i for the life of me and gaming, have h-o-r-r-i-b-l-e slow game playing on primary two games:
    Prototype2 -
    Eroico -

    the youtube link are for reference of the speed im suppose to be getting....
    and yet the weird part:
    after going through a L-O-N-G struggle to get win7 dual-booting: Eroico plays fine.
    on my other dual-booting server with a win10 that's a few version behind: Eroico plays fine.
    prototype2 i know has framerate issues, but not to the point of excessive lagging....

    so, back to the main question....if these other OSes can play them, why cant my up-to-date win10 play them?

    Some games aren't properly optimized for AMD systems, and the APUs are pretty terrible to begin with.

    Plus your running W10 i had to find alternative ways to play some older titles that worked perfectly on XP/W7.

    My laptop has a pretty good spec, but I have to reduce the settings to minimal in order to get a decent speed out of it.

    Laptops in general get worse overtime and since they aren't customizable you kinda have to deal with the long term issues
    I had to part ways with my xps laptop when I couldn't record while playing mainly the cpu being used alot
