Left 4 Dead was playable on this machine with medium settings. I was averaging anywhere from 20 - 40 fps with these settings:

- 1280 x 720 resolution
- Bilinear filtering
- No V-Sync
- Multicore Rendering on
- Shader Detail 'Low'
- Effect Detail 'Medium'
- Model/ Texture Detail 'High'
- Paged Memory Available 'High'

My fps did drop lower to 20fps whenever I was getting swarmed by zombies but only for a second or two.

I probably could've dedicated more system memory to Left 4 Dead if I didn't have Vuze, Sticky Notes, and Widgets running in the background.
Yeah, but 20-40 FPS is sadly too low for me. The config I linked disables all the unnecessary crap and allows the game to run fluidly for competitive play. I really don't care about detail, but seeing as it's a quake engine (moar fps= less screen tearing), I would prefer at least 100+ fps average without dipping past a refresh rate of 75hz~.

If the machine is not capable of this, I'm going to have till wait until newer and more updated fusion APU's surface. Before anyone asks, the netbook is for school, I need the battery life when I'm not gaming. ;D

Edit: I could technically modify that config seeing as I've had my desktop to a point where it produced at least 900 fps constant, but I just wanna see what the E-350/Radeon 63xx is capable of with my current settings.

Well what are you seriously expecting lol. It's a netbook and a platform to compete with atom, which it does quite well.
Netbooks are not meant to be gamed on, even though you can.

Hey everyone, I just uploaded my CS: Source results.

Hey Skylit. I think you'll find that the dm1z won't make you happy while playing CS: Source. At the lowest settings, it was barely able to average 60 fps. And this is just the built in benchmark tool! I can't imagine how much lower it would be when playing in a full server with smokes everywhere. I hope this helps. (If you still want me to run the test with your settings and cfg file, just let me know. I'm more than happy to do that.

Sorry man I don't play that game. It only took one game of DOTA for me to realize I'm not any good at those kinds of games. I'll see if I can get my friend to let me use his account to test it out though.

Can you PLEASSSSSSSE test out how League of Legends runs on this? Its a 1Gb Free RTS game that takes like 10 minutes to install and 5 minutes to create an account. Its also quite fun, even though I am a FPS person.
post #27 of 197
Nice progress.

Wow, even with all the settings set to 'low' the dm1 barely u60fps. :T

But there's one think I've been itching to ask... why wasn't 'multicore rendering' enabled?

Well 30-50 average fps is expected with the stock settings and I don't really play in full servers, but rather 5v5 scrims.

The config would give me an idea of what it's capable of at DX9. There's always the option of DX8, but I try not to use that anymore since flashes now last longer after the orange box update.

Oh and does 1024x768 black bar? I forgot to ask.

Edit: Lemme figure out a way to avoid cloud because even after disabling it, it reverts back to previous config.cfg files. I don't want you to be stuck with these settings if you don't want them D:

It's free? I didn't know that. I'll go and get it then.

I thought it wouldn't really make a difference, but I'll go ahead and re-run both tests with multicore rendering enabled to see if it makes any difference.

Haha that would be much appreciated. I'll after I re-run my two tests with multicore on, I'll do yours as well. BTW, what's "black bar"? Is that the black bar horizontal bar you see on top and bottom on the movie theatres?


Still working on SC2, L4D2, and TF2. Sorry for the delay everyone. I work all day and can only run these tests at night!

For SCII I would recommend watching one of the heavy action cinema's and see how it does with it, as well as play a multiplayer match, I like 3v3 personally

Very much looking forward to all your result.

As for the RE5, thinking maybe its a cpu bottleneck?
