Sony :: Game Performance Of VPCF115FM/B

Jan 26, 2010

picking up the Sony VPC115FM/B at Best Buy:

[url]

I realize the 330M GT is not a tier 1 video card for gaming...but I'm curious if this card can drive the native 1920 by 1080 res of this laptop in modern games (MW2, Mass Effect 2, etc). I'm not looking for 60 frames per second...would be satisfied with 30...just trying to gauge if this is a reasonable expectation.

Closest answer I've found in the owner threads indicated that one person said it could run native on Left 4 Dead 2 and COD: World at War.

Very impressed by the performance of the i7 core and DDR3 memory...just hoping the video card can at least hold its own.

Apr 7, 2009

how much stronger one is over the other. The m1530's is a 256mb card, but it's ddr3 and seems a lot more powerful than the typical 8600M.

Oh, and does anyone know when there'll be new colours for the studio 16? =)

Dell :: Studio XPS 13 NVIDIA G210M Game Crashes

Feb 18, 2010

I recently purchased a Studio XPS 13 (a month ago), and since the beginning, I've noticed that every time I run a game on high performance (g210m + 9400mg), the game either crashes or gets stuck. At the same settings, if I run the game in normal mode (9400 mg), it usually works fine. The settings are medium-low, never high. I really can't understand why this happens. Isn't the G210M supposed to make things better? is it a problem with the drivers? I have all the latest drivers updated from the Dell site. or is this a problem with my hardware? really worried and unfortunately I don't know a whole lot about computers.

The games I've run so far are COD4, COD6 and NFS Shift. They are all ripped copies.

Dell :: Performance & Studio XPS 16

Mar 3, 2009

I'm looking to purchase an Studio XPS 16 soon. I have never considered buying this laptop given the high pricetag, even though I really like it. But that changed yesterday as I received a 70% OFF coupon.

So here am I, wondering which config I should select. For instance, 500GB @ 7200rpm or 320GB @ 7200rpm or 128GB SSD? Intel 5300 Wireless-N or 5100?

Performance is important but I also want to select components or a configuration that has fewest known problems (bug, incompability or being unreliable).

Dell :: Studio Performance Line?

Oct 4, 2009

Trying to use Dell Financing to get a laptop and had a question.

Dell has 12 months no payment for "Studio Performance" laptops. I cannot find the perrformance line. Is this the same as the regular Studio 15 and 17 line?

They also have 12 months no payments for Sudio XPS and XPS but they are a bit out of my price range.

Dell :: Can A XPS M1330 Even Remotely Compare With A Sager Np2096

Aug 22, 2008

My friend wants me to bring him oblivion, as he believes it will run it well (high or max settings). He has a Dell XPS M1330 laptop.

I recently ordered a Sager NP2096 pretty much specifically for oblivion, but also for hauling around a uni campus, so i wanted something light. I was told the NP2096 would run it at medium-high settings.

His dell XPS is very light, which confused me, as i thought that the XPS gaming laptops were very heavy (11 pounds), then i looked up the specs and found that his XPS isn't a gaming model.

When talking to him i was under the impression that i made a mistake ordering the Sager, because according to him, his XPS was lighter, slightly cheaper, and would even play oblivion better. I don't want to regret my purchase.

Dell :: Studio 1735's ATi 3650 Performance

Sep 18, 2008

I got myself a shiny 1735. I'm not a big gamer, but I wanted something that could play the odd game and specifically World of Warcraft. With this in mind (and the fact that I've never yet met an integrated graphics solution that didn't suck so hard that Dyson wanted to patent it), I went with the ATi Radeon Mobility HD 3650 gfx upgrade. I've never been a fan of ATi so it wouldn't have been my first choice of card, but given that it's about the same choice as the vegetarian "option" in restaurants (ie, take it, or go hungry) I figured it was worth a punt.

Got WoW installed and played about with settings. To cut a long story short, it looks absolutely gorgeous and will happily fling the game about with all the settings ramped up to max at 1920x1200. But.

WoW seems to run... I'm struggling for the exact word, but it's "choppy". When you're running / flying, the terrain isn't smooth, it kinda jerks past in quick bursts. It doesn't feel like the card is struggling per sť, it's like the sort of thing that you'd expect to be fixed in a driver update.

I grabbed the latest Catalyst drivers from ATi (8.8). They appear to install fine, along with the control centre which is missing from the stock Dell install, but it doesn't actually appear to update the drivers from 8.4. Presumably this is down to it being a laptop adapter rather than a discrete ATi card, but I've not as yet come up with a workaround to make it install though I'm sure it's possible. Anyway.

I took a closer look at the graphics card. The stock 3650 from ATi runs at 600MHz core, 500MHz RAM. yet the adapter supplied by Dell appears to be underclocked, the memory is the same speed but the core is running at just 450MHz.

Experimenting with ATiTool, I can reclock the card to run at ATi stock speeds of 600/500. At this speed it runs rock solid stable under extended load, with no discernable thermal issues that I can immediately make out. Overclocking it much past this almost immediately crashes the laptop so I can't recommend taking it much out of spec, for the sake of a couple of MHz it's just not worth the risk / hassle, but at 600 core it's solid. I can only assume that Dell have underclocked it to improve battery life, I can't see any other reason for such a large crippling.

Clocking the card 'properly' and switching off Full Screen Glow in WoW has gone a long way towards rectifying the choppiness, but I can see that it's still not "right". I've not yet played with other resolutions or tried any other games so I don't know if I'm just asking too much in terms of graphics RAM or if it's specifically a WoW issue but I'm going to carry on fiddling with it. Short of persevering with hacking the Catalyst 8.8 drivers though, I'm not entirely sure where else I can go with this. In the grand scheme of things it's not a huge issue, it's just irritating that my shiny new toy isn't quite the beast I was expecting when I bought it.

Dell Studio XPS 1645 :: Low Performance When Gaming

Nov 18, 2010

I have a Dell Studio XPS 1645 laptop, 1.73 GHz Intel Core i7 CPU, 4G RAM, Windows 7 64-bit O/S, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670 video card.

Among other things, I'm using this computer for gaming. I play Lord of the Rings Online and World of Warcraft. They both run very erratically on this computer in terms of frames per second. They may run at 60 fps for half an hour, then throttle back to 1-2 fps for half an hour, and it's nearly impossible to play these games at 1-2 fps. 

I recently downloaded the new BIOS patch and acquired the 130W power supply, which were supposed to be related to similar performance issues, but they did not seem to make any difference. There is no question that the computer gets quite hot when running these games, but even when hot it will suddenly work properly for half an hour before going painfully slow again. I close all other applications when running these games, and I do have McAfee firewall running in the background.

What gets me is how this problem seems to "throttle" - sometimes it works perfectly and other times it's painful. This tells me that the system has the specs and horsepower to play these games - something else must be happening.

HP/Compaq :: HP Envy 15 TempsLet's Compare

Apr 4, 2010

Just got my new Envy 15... I'm kind of on the fence right now whether I want to keep it or not once the MSI Gx640 comes out. It really comes down to temps... this thing is hot (also the touchpad is horrible). I reinstalled Windows, and did everything but update BIOS (still default).

When I boot the computer and it's idling both palm rests get lukewarm almost right away. This is weird considering it's not doing anything.

Right now my CPU (520m) is at 30% load and my temps are between 65c and 70c, running the Battlefield Bad Company 2 updater. The right palm rest is noticeably warm and the left palm rest is hot (still usable). The bottom of the laptop in the front is too hot to touch for more than 10 seconds.

Is this "normal"? I thought this thing was supposed to run cool idle and not get too hot with the i5. I haven't even stressed it to 100% and it's getting hot. I want to see other people's temps (JJBs temps seem way low, even at max load).

Dell :: Studio 17 Hard Drive Performance ... Poor?

Jan 5, 2009

This thing is only a week old.

Anyway, he has yet to install anything beyond what came with the laptop and he commented that a antivirus scan took 8+ hours to run.

That seemed incredible to me so I went over and we ran a few benchmarks and the results were frighteningly bad.

Using HDTune, the normal curve one sees of a declining arch is rife with drastic spikes all the way through with minimum of 2.2 MB/sec (seems VERY low), and a maximum of 65 MB/sec (normalish).

Additionally, the CPU usage was 11.9 percent, which seems unusually high.
