My brother is getting an ASUS gaming laptop with 8GB of RAM, a Core i7 (sandy bridge) quad core processor, and a GeForce GTX460m (1GB).

Will that laptop be able to run Battlefield 3 and all other games smoothly at maybe medium settings?

Off-topic, but how will BF3 run on my dual (desktop) HD 5870's in CF? Will it be more demanding than BFBC2?

pshh gaming laptops are trash why spend over a grand to play games at medium? 5870 crossfire should be fine as long as drivers don't ruin your time. We will not know until its released and tested all we can do now is speculate...

I believe the 460m is as powerful as a discrete 5770, so he will be lucky to play bf3 on med with that type of power imo

I have an HD 5750 in my old desktop and I can run any game I have on medium-high settings with no slowdowns.

Well, BF2 broke everything in existence when it came out, and a 460 can't even max BFBC2.

Can you play on medium settings no AA? Probably. Above that? I doubt it very much.

ask your magic 8 ball

or seriously, wait till it is released and the recommended system requirements are released and some benchies have been done. Why do people have to jump the gun on these things all the time. FFS How the hell are we supposed to know how it will run?????

yeah right if a 5750 was gas you would barely have enough to power a moped around the outside of a penny :lol:

You're ignorant of how graphics cards work. My GTX260 which is equivalent to a 5770 can run battlefield BC:2 on HIGH and could do max and still produce playable frames. Not everyone plays games at 1080p. Of course I am going to get a GTX560 soon for directx11.

ive owned a gtx 260 as well as a 5770 in different systems and I'm well aware of their performance. However it comes down to a matter of preference, my standards are just higher, that is all.... look at my posts I am certainly not ignorant on the matter, sorry for dawging your 5750 its a decent card in the end

make sure your desktop got 4core , new BF series, BFBC2 and BF3 run very well on 4 cores.

I have got a gtx 275 and I maxed out bad company 2 at 1680X1050 but turned HBAO off as the advantage it gives is negligible compared to the fps loss.Anyway even in heavy explosions like in the desert fps was constantly above 30.average was 45 fps.I can play most games out there at max with games like metro which I play on high(one step below max).

@OP.Battlefield3 will require HEAVY CPU power considering the fact that on my gtx 275 when I upgraded my cpu from core 2 quad q8200 to core i7 870 my fps skyrocketed.

I believe the ASUS gaming laptop has a quad-core Core i7 Sandy Bridge processor.

i7 on a laptop is not as powerful as i7 on desktop.I beleive that the i7 on that laptop is only as powerful as a desktop core 2 quad q9550.Its a very good processor.I think on that laptop you will probably play the game on medium to high settings

yeah well this is where our opinions differ I like to play at 1080p all high and 8xaa and still maintain no lower than 55fps and this is what I can acheive with my current system, its all a matter of preference

^also keep in mind that you are running dx10, however the gtx 275 is still a decent card

How long should my two HD 5870's in CF last me until games get too advanced for them to playably run on high settings?

A pair of X-Fired 5870's was at the very top of the charts for 2010; as long as you don't intend to crank up the AA/AF to exceed the limits of 1 GB framebuffer per GPU, you should be good for 2 years, I'd guess!

don't get your hopes up for crysis 3.Crysis 2 was one of the most ugliest console ported games.Crysis 3 will be no different.If you want to test your cards just play the original pc exclusive crysis which is STILL very demanding even after 4 years

^ yeah I bet you can that res is not very demanding... crysis died after warhead, why are pc gamers talking about it or playing it? it is a steaming pile of garbage with some of the worst graphics and image quality ive ever seen I'd rather be playing CSS, the game is a complete failure imo, especially If you played to first ones which were good....

Battlefield 3 is going to use a new engine, so if you cant max out bad company 2, you cant max out bf 3. CSS is one of the best games!

agreed about CSS, I am also a big fan of the more arcadish TF2, gotta love rocket jumps at 19201200 with 32x CSAA, anyways lol, i agree that BF3 will be (At least) as demanding as BFBC2 likely a little bit more-so if the developer has started to implement more dx11 elements

Dude, JJB, why do you keep showing off about how you like to play your games in highest res and all. Your system isnt as good as you make is seem, why you gloat? No body cares, they are asking about how the game will play with the indicated laptop, not a desktop like yours. I am looking at this thread cause I have this laptop. I also have a desktop though: Core i7 950 @ 4.2ghz, Crucial Ballistix Tracer 12GB DDR3 1600mhz, EVGA GTX 580 @ 950/4300mhz, EVGA X58 FTW3 motherboard, Kingston SSDNow V+ 128gb, 1TB WD 7200rpm HDD, 1250w Enermax EVO PSU, Corsair 800D case, all EK watercooled. But I like to game while at work on my lunch or downtime so I have a laptop also. Everyone knows a laptop doesnt compare to a desktop, but not everyone wants to limit their game space to a desk. I didnt realize my GTX 460m was 1gb until after so I was also wondering since I play FPS games and will play BF3.

I'm hardly gloating, why are you resurrecting an old thread? Why do you claim that I am gloating even though I was just giving an example, and then you continue on to boast about your damn system, just like you said no one cares!

I can play BFBC2 on 1920x1080 with everything else maxed out and get almost 100 fps.

I have a pair of two HD 5870's (1GB) in CF. BF3 can't be too much more demanding then BC2, so I shouldn't have any trouble running it on max, should I?

Hell, I can run Crysis at very high spec at 1920x1080 and still get 40-55 fps.

Hi,

Can we stick to the question - can a gaming laptop with a 460GTXm run BF3? - i7 with 8GB RAM

I did that BF3 test on the Nvidia website to see if my lappy would (MSI GT680) - said no to high graphics but i don't beleive this fully tests lapptop GPU's?

Anyway to those idiots who say a 466GTXm wont run BC2 - i do at 1080p with one and the graphics are maxed out and i do not have any frame rate issues at all!!! Though not sure what i have AA set at? Think it's on about 4x

Anyway my point is that it plays BC2 easily and not sure about the original question?

To those who say why pay x for gaming laptop well - i did because;
1. i don't like buying crap
2. I want it to last for as long as possible - why pay $1000 per year for a new lappy, when i could pay $2000 get a decent one and give it an expected lifespan of 4 years? I've worked out (as previously done it) a decent laptop will last this long with current software trends before things start to slow up.

So to the idiot who spends $1000 per year and pays $4000 over 4 years i spend $2000 for the same time and have an extra $2000 to buy whatever else i want.

hope this helps! :D
