Easily. I run it on an i3 1.8x processor with no dedicated graphics card. Settings are maxed out but of decent quality.

How many fps are you getting?

Tops I get during gameplay is in the low 20s for borderlands, 30s for other games (NBA 2k, Tekken 7, Portal 2). I mostly play older games so it’s not like I’m aiming for the optimum gaming experience. It it’s as good as last generation console games ( xbox 360, PS 2) I’m happy. Resolution is set to 1366 * 768. Here are my settings.

Do you reckon if I play in low-medium settings, I can get a steady 40-60 fps?

For me, the frame rate isn’t so much an issue given I’m playing on a laptop monitor (14.7") that’s usually a fair distance from me. I’m more interested in the clarity of the graphics so I optimize for that. Here’s the actual spec of my machine:


Disable cell shading in game’s config file, that’ll improve fps.
