Kind of expected, but still too bad.
I have the i7 version I will try it on that see how it performs if it will?

Ok tried it and it runs even on high settings although much better on medium and still looks good
Not sure how to get fps on though is there a setting some where? as I've only had a quick look

I used fraps.

Ok will try it later

Ok runs on medium graphic settings at around 40fps at 1080

That's encouraging to know. At that point, the 860m should be the limiting factor. Maybe I can get an i5 for cheap.

This makes me want to give it a shot.

At 1080 on low graphic settings runs from 40 to 48 fps didn't see it go under 40fps

I'm jelly. Can't find a suitable 35w i5 for less than 150 Euro.

I'm using an 84w i7 in mine. The Alpha will limit the CPU to 35 - 40 watts on its own, so it doesn't really matter which i5 you buy (assuming it's Haswell based).
