    Can I disable SSAO (screen-space ambient occlusion) in the Intel HD Graphics Control Panel or elsewhere?


      Hi everyone,

      I am really enjoying my laptop (ASUS TP300LA, Intel i5 4200-U @ 2.7gHz w/ Intel HD 4400) so far, I have one question though.

      I have noticed that when playing games, enabling SSAO (screen-space ambient occlusion) reduces my FPS hugely; this isn't a problem for me, I always disable it when possible. However, some games have it on by default with no option to disable it through the game settings or files (e.g. Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition).

      Is there a way to disable SSAO via the HD Graphics Control Panel or in the BIOS, or something like that? Sleeping Dogs would play fine if I could turn off SSAO
