I have this old shed sitting in a box, dont know if this the lowest machine spec so far-

 

Dell D410

  • Intel Pentium M 755 / 2 GHz
  • Mobile Intel 915GM Express
  • Intel GMA 900 - it only support OpenGL 1.4, what the min requirement for 2.06..?
  • Windows Xp, but I may put linux on there.
  • 1024*768 screen, but it barley runs T2 @ 800*600

 

 

That won't even run Doom 3. GMA 900 has "No Hardware T&L" support.

 

The only way that would work is with a wrapper like LLVM:

but an i3 gets 2FPS in New Job as I recall so...

 

Well. I guess you could possibly install an express card or external GPU of some sort.

Latest build is a small form factor with a GTX750TI. Not particularly slow or old, but definitely a budget card. I find that the game runs great at 720p with soft shadow quality at 40. If you don't want soft shadows, you can use 1080p. But soft shadows and 1080p tend to slow things down.
