Hey guys, I have a core i3 350m 2.3 ghz, 4 gb ram, and a ATI 5650m 1GB. Will I be able to run Witcher 2 on my laptop. The videos I looked showed very high graphics. I can currently play Bad Company 2 multiplayer on medium settings at 720p comfortably on my laptop with about 40 fps. Is Witcher 2 more demanding than Bad Company 2? Also if it will work on what settings will I be able to play this game? And I heard that people were having issues with outdated drivers. I have a Sony VAIO and Sony rarely updates its drivers all the while not allowing to update from ATI directly. Do you think there might be problem here?
Looking forward to quick replies. Can wait to hit "Purchase for myself" button in Steam.
The Witcher 2 will murder your laptop on anything but "low" gfx
The 5650M is supposed to be a higher-performance GPU than my GT330M, which plays it OK with medium settings if I turn off SSAO. My laptop has an i5 rather than an i3, but there shouldn't be much difference in CPU performance as I believe the game is multithreaded and hence the i5 won't use its turbo mode.
VAIO E, huh? I have the same machine. At "low spec" with the 2 textures related settings set to "no down- scaling" and "small" (up from the default lowest setting under low spec), I am getting like 25~30fps.
