Dear BrinkOfDisaster,

Thanks for the reply. I'm not angry because I make the wrong decision.
I'm angry because marketeers these days sell lies without even blinking their eyes.
It's not only Intel, look at mortages; that sector is far worse when it comes to selling lies.

I'm suprised though that Crisis runs on the IGP. Since with the nVidia i can forget running it on medium or higher, i would have expected with the IGP to get a framerate of 0.3 or so on everything low. Are you sure it was Crisis? maybe you ment FarCry ?

Well, when you run Crysis at 800x600 at low settings, almost every "advanced" feature is disabled. So it's probably equivalent to playing WC3 on high settings x)

Try medium settings, probably will get 5 fps lol.

I'd expect that. But what does a new IGP from nVidia or ATi get as far a frame rates go in Crysis?

Hell I'm surprised it didn't crash at the menu let alone play!

Truthfully the game is pointless to play at low settings as the graphics exibited at such a low setting aren't worth the lag, given you can play alot of games that look a helluva lot better than Crysis on low settings with glitches. My screenshot was taken at mostly medium settings and I got a slideshow but I just wanted a nice picture given the games graphics on low don't do it justice. Whenever my buddy picks a new video card, in the 8600GTS/2600XT range, we'll try Crysis out on it too just to see what kind of frame rates can be achieved with a budget descrete card. My OC'd 8800Ultra in my quad core rig didn't exibit any lag when I played it but I played it for 2 minutes :p....

Utilizing graphics memory ssb_swe Oct 29th, 07, 08:37 PM #456
hi friends have any one noted the amount of graphics memory utilized when playing the games,i ran some of the games such as nfs carbon,call of duty 2,
company of heroes and supreme commander etc , i just pressed the windows key while playing and went to the graphics properties (ctrl + alt +f12) and clicked the information button it shows,

minimum graphics memory =8 maximum graphics memory = 384 and
Memory in use = 20 to max of 45 mb

why the graphics engine is not using large video memory to run higher end games with minimum req of 128mb and more????

Well NFS: Pro Street works pretty good. Loose all of the settings though because some make the game crash while in gameplay. Damage, FX, not sure which ones make it crash to desktop but it plays pretty well at 1440x900 on low settings.

Wouldn't turning off Anisotropic filtering give you a huge boost?

I've been playing Hellgate: London at 1280x800 with shader quality at high, shadows low, model detail high, texture quality very high, dynamic lights enabled, trilinear + anisotropic filtering and weather. Most of the time framerates are between 12-22 hardly ever does it drop below 10. Alas the graphics are good but it's just another Diablo rip so for me gameplay isn't that exhilarating.

Generally for X3000 you can set

Textures: High
Model Detail: High
Trilinear/Anisotropic filtering
Shadows: Low
Lighting: Low/Med
Particles: Med
Post-processing: Low
Shader Quality: Low/Med

Textures/Details can be high coz there's quite q lot of memory to take those textures, plus we won't be doing any AA on most games.

I've come to find that "Speed challege" doesn't work, it results in a crash but "Grip race" works just fine. Also make sure you've got your all settings at low or off as some of which may result in a crash, you can experiment with certain settings to see if they cause problems. Resolution is irrelivant and relies only upon your monitor and whether you'd rather 30+ FPS or if you can deal with less. Maybe this will help
