I plan on getting a new PC and I have been looking for the right laptop for the right price for some time now I would rather get a tower but I want mobility. I was wondering if the Sager NP8130 would be able to run COD Black Ops, Alice: Madness Returns but most of all RIFT on Ultra graphics during world events, raids and etc WITHOUT LAG. Also if you know of a better computer for cheaper please let me know, or one with about the same specs. pretty much im looking for a computer with 1. Good GPU (most important) 2. Processor and RAM (equally important) Here are the specs
Simple answer NO ..... at 1920x1080 the 460 mobile isnt running Rift let alone many other games at max/ultra settings. I just built a gaming desktop for my cousin with a 460 and it cannot even run WoW at ultra settings at 1680x1200 with acceptable frames.
Really?? Well I was reading the RIFT forums and people were saying tht they were able to run RIFT on ultra settings with no lag during raids and such. The only thing they said was that they had the shadows turned down a little. My friend has an alienware with a nvidia geforce gtx 260m and it ran RIFT on ultra settings, althought he has an i7 960 processor
I just built a desktop with a gtx 570. I play on ultra settings but framerates are only 20-30 in Sanctum and 30-40+ in the rest of the world. Just a data point for you to compare to, I'm not sure how the mobile cards compare to desktop cards.
Actually I have a couple more data points on my 2 older laptops.
Gateway gaming laptop, I *think* has a 9600m graphics card and it could hardly play at all on low-rendering mode.
Asus G72 laptop with a 260m graphics card could also only play on low-rendering mode but played smooth.
I don't have any other specifics on the laptops since I'm at work, but I'm pretty sure those are the graphics cards and I couldn't get out of low-rendering mode on either.
