Games on Laptop?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello guys

This evening, I ordered a new Acer Aspire laptop. I was wondering what sort of performance I should expect on GTA IV, JC2 and other similar games.

The laptop is the following spec:

AMD Athlon II X2
- 2.2GHz

3GB DDR3 RAM

500GB HDD

ATI Mobility HD 5470
- DX11
- Shader 5.0
- Core speed 750 MHz
- Shader speed 750 MHz
- Memory speed 1,8 GHz


Thanks


Tom

gta iv shud run on low maybe some of medium settings. It will probably get choppy at times tho because the 5470 is average in terms of gpu performance. JC2 shud be running around the low settings as well but dont expect anything amazing. Also set your games to the lowest res possible.

the cpu is too weak. Maybe lowest settings and about 20fps is what you could expect.

Don't expect much out of GTA. It doesn't even run well on my triple core desktop. L4D2 and COD4 might work.

Thanks for your replies

I wasn't expecting fantastic performance, seeing how GTA IV runs on my more powerful desktop.I guess I'll have more luck with the better optimized games.
