Is this hardware sufficient for TDM?

Recommended Posts

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.


What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

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.

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.


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.

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.
