I ran the beta at 1280x1024, I think. All other settings were the default.

Ran smooth, no complaints.

laptop got too hot to put on the lap, however.

If it melts, I'll get a new one.

Get a cooling pad, high temps will cause latency thus slow things down.

The Human eye can't really see past 60FPS so anything over that is good... other than that why does it matter really?

I mean i have a A8 Quad core 3500 with Dual Core 6750 Graphic cards i am sure ill run it over 60fps

Interesting java applet ... it says I pass and it's dead in the middle of slow and fast ... whatever that means...

Can't see past 60, but most people can't really tell past 30.

My friend has some weird eye thing and can see 90, but he can't see in 3d.

If it stops in the middle it means you pass the minimum requirements and can play it on medium to mid high settings without any fps problems.

You know it's interesting ... Device Manager shows 4 CPUs ... which would lead me to believe that it's a quad core processor... but the laptop was never advertised as that at all... odd.

I'll probably try tweaking more settings (when I get access) and see if there's a magic setting it just doesn't like dealing with...

Thanks for the responses everyone, definitely helps to put things in perspective about how it's running on a variety of different setups

@ the OP:

Full HD resolution is pretty hardcore for your current video card to handle out games at full settings.

Your CPU is fine. Ram is more than enough.


420m is your problem. And the resolution. Try to lower it.

last edit: and YES. All i* processors are quad cores.

Mine seems to run fairly well on my laptop at high resolution (1920 x 1080).

Had to make sure the power management wasn't on "power save" though.

i7 1.73 GHz
Radeon 5850
8GB DDR3 Memory


Cooling pad really did help, though.
