Slow FPS, Very Slow
Hello there and thanks for viewing my question.
I've been wanting to learn and create my own game for the longest time now but came across an obstacle that I'm not too sure of which the solution should be. While learning UE4 from their massive tutorial playlist, I have found that my player runs slow. Like very slow. I was comparing my FPS to the some people making time lapses and it's signficantly different. I am averaging 8 FPS while others are hoping for 80. While on the 'lit' mode of the editor, it lags every time I try to move it. What i have been doing is editing on the 'unlit' and been getting framerates of around 30. I've included a picture to help show the struggle:
I know that the solution wouldn't lie in the engine as much it does in the laptop I am currently using. Here is some information about my computer that could probably help the situation.
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50GHz 2.50 GHz
Installed Memory (RAM): 6.00 GB (4.66 GB usable)
64-bit Operating System
Service Pack 1 (Windows 7)
Here is my DixDiag: http://pastebin.com/iULSLzGJ
I am completely stumbled and don't know what to do. Would updating my laptop to Windows 10 do anything? Do I need another Graphics Card? If I do, which one? I hope an expert can help me on this subject and begin a smooth journey through UE4.
Thank you so much for the help,

Well first off:
I'm not sure what laptop you have, but if you can get an external GPU core and GPU, like this: http://www.razerzone.com/store/razer-core + something in the last 2-3 years for a GPU, you'll be flying.
What you CAN do, to help out... is changing your Engine Scalability Settings.
