Found this forum in a google search.. its a great source of info. thanks.
I purchased a Toshiba Satellite A70 Laptop this summer and was wondering what I can do to make my games run faster. Here is my specs and I will follow with my problems.
512 megs Memory, then added another 256meg chip Seems slower now!
60 gig 4500rpm stock hard drive
ATI Radion 9000 IGP video card. Uses memory from Ram!
I am noticing that when I try to run games like cabelas Deer hunter 2005 etc and some other games like halo I have problems with Frame rates being slow. its speeds up if I lower vid settings but then I get a crappy looking game.
Did a 3Dmarks 2003 benchmark and I get a score of 473 sounds slow.
when I do the same test on my Desktop with less CPU , Ram, and a gforce3 TI 128meg video card the score is almost twice as high.
I just installed 3Dmark 2001 and did another test and gota score of 3125 points.. Not sure if that is good.. seems lower then a lot of others I compaired with.
any ideas anyone.
Im new to laptops so please excuse any obious questions.
