Is this hardware sufficient for TDM?

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!

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

You can, just update the Intel GPU drivers.

Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

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

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

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.

 

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.

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
