Slow Video Game’s Frame Rate

Planning to play Top Spin 2 video game. Below are my upgraded Asus A6R laptop specs
OS: XP Pro SP3 32 bit
CPU: Intel Pentium M 765 2.1 GHz
RAM: 1024 MB
Video Memory: ATI Radeon Xpress 200M Series 128 MB (integrated)
Local Hard Drive Space: 40GB; 60% are free space
Other: Installed 3D Hardware Accelerator Card with 100% DirectX 9.0c

The PC minimum system requirements of Top Spin 2 are the same specs as the above mentioned items except the CPU requires an Intel Pentium 4 2.0 GHz or AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (Take note mine is Intel Pentium M 765 2.1 GHz)
I have already installed Radeon Omega Driver version 2.6.87, 3.8.205 and the latest version 4.8.442 but still the video game frame rate is sluggish/Slow. I have even adjusted the tab 3D custom setting for direct 3D & Open GL namely “anti-aliasing & anisotropic filtering” were both set to 2X, the “texture preference and mipmap detail level” were set to high performance instead of high quality and “wait for vertical sync” was set to always off but so far nothing had change. Do you think my CPU or video memory insufficient performance is the most likely cause of sluggish/slow frame rate?

Any comments/suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thanks

  1. your cpu and ram will be fine but you graphics are integrate and isnt upto the job. the integrated chipset is idealy for media and older games. you may get away with virtua tennis but not a more modern game.
  2. +1, short of overclocking the gpu, not recommended, nothing you can do.
  3. Message noted with thanks....
