Hey there guys,

 

I'm thinking about getting into TDM, I'm a console guy, so my laptop isn't exactly a top tier machine, here are my specs:

 

-Intel Core i3-7100U, 2400 MHz (24 x 100)

-4 GB of RAM (I'm thinking about upgrading it to 8 gigs)

-Intel HD Graphics 620 (1 GB)

 

So my question is simple, is this enough to play TDM properly? Or are there resource-heavy missions I should forget? Thanks for the answers in advance!

I think you can play it with that, but some missions might lag at places.

And do you have a 3 gb (or more) free space on your harddisk, typhon?
 
With you system specs, just have a try,
TDM is free to download, play and, if slow, easy to delete.
 
Some beginner tips:

Enough for 720p

​I'm kinda late due to Forum verification waiting time, but I have an i7 7500U with the same iGPU and the game runs just fine at 1080p, lowest graphics settings except highest LoD. On many maps I also could set both AA/AS to x2.

Just to add to this, what laptop make and model is it? I ask because you might be able to use an external gfx card.

I have a HP Envy x360 15-aq104ng ("office"/multimedia laptop for university, at least it should have only been for that... :rolleyes:), there's surely no dedicated GPU.

My GPU has a sligthly higher boost clock, but not by much (7100U GPU has 1GHz, 7500U GPU has 1,05Ghz). :D

Well it looks like the USB-C port is NOT Thunderbolt compatible, which is a shame. Otherwise you would have been able to plug in an external GPU.

You can, just update the Intel GPU drivers.

You could have gone with a m6-aq005dx and it would double your fps for the same price.

I'd never buy an external GPU anyway, that's what my PC at home is for. :P

I didn't buy this laptop for gaming. And I'd never buy one with a HDD.
