So i recently got this new laptop for school next year (i'm going off to university) and I thought, hey maybe i could run a couple higher end games on this thing.
The basic specs are as such
ivy bridge i7 processor at 3.3GHz
8GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM
2TB HDD @7200RPM
NVIDIA GeForce GT 650m with 1GB GDDR5
So, my question is first and foremost, Can I run Battlefield 3 and other such higher end games, like skyrim and Arkham City, to name a few?
Secondly (lets keep this one BF3 specific, shall we) what kind of settings, and subsequent FPS can i achieve?
Turbo boost is where intel processors will go faster if they need to. It is very similar to overclocking, but temporary and automatic. You won't see much of this on a laptop because it will only work if there is excess electricity and it is cool enough. The amount of electricity in a laptop is usually just enough for the parts to run and laptops have heat problems as it is.
Where are you buying this from and which model is it?
