Stalker: Clear Sky And World In Conflict

Mobile GeForce GTX Graphics: Model Inflation Gone Awry

We would think that the big selling point of a “graphics” notebook would be gaming at the panel’s native resolution, but Stalker is yet anther title that simply can’t be played smoothly on anything more than 1280x1024 using the mobile graphics solution.

Adding AA kills even the desktop GTX 280, with 1280x1024 being its only truly playable resolution.

Now, this is embarrassing: World in Conflict isn’t known to be a graphics-limited title, yet the GeForce GTX 280M gets a little choppy at 1920x1200 even with AA and AF disabled. Meanwhile, the desktop GTX 280 reaches the same resolution smoothly with 4x AA and 16x AF.
