How can I check how smoothly a game will run?

#1temoorashrafPosted 5/14/2014 8:04:25 AM
I have a laptop that can run almost all current games,but I would like to know how smoothly my laptop will play a game before I buy it.

This would be even more helpful when more heavy games come out. My laptop has a dual GPU system,it runs an Intel HD GPU for simple tasks and uses the AMD 7670m GPU when a game starts running.

only real way is to have the knowledge of whats in your system and what does the game require


other then that your just gonna have to run it to find out


and NEVER rely on websites like canyourunit

They're called benchmarks and Google is full of them.

This. A lot of gaming laptops get benchmarked as a whole as part of reviews.

You can't really trust the minimum requirements, It varies from game to game.

Be careful, I linked someone with a silly question to "Let Me Google That for You" and my message was moderated. You can insult them directly all you want, but god help you if you link to google!

If you just meet the minimum, typically not very well, as those are the bare minimum specs for getting the game running at low settings - you'll probably have to play at a lower resolution and the performance will likely be borderline unplayable.
