I logged into today’s four-hour stress test for a couple of hours; one thing I wanted to try was setting all the graphics to maximum on my laptop. I was unsurprised to discover that it was unplayable in that configuration, but by turning off supersampling and leaving all other settings on their highest level it was still quite playable; it was obviously chugging some, but not enough that I couldn’t play the game.

For the record, the stats for the laptop are:

  • Intel i5 2.27 GHz (not sure which model)
  • Nvidia GT330M graphics with 1GB Video RAM
  • 6GB RAM
  • Windows 7 x64 Home Premium
  • Video resolution 1366×768

For the released game I suspect I’ll be turning one or two settings down from maximum (e.g shadows, which don’t seem to make much difference) and keeping the rest high.
