Radeon HD 7450 doesnt cut it?

The amd hotfix said the 7000 series was unaffected and yet i still got the error message that the card wasnt good enough. According to system requirements it should be more than enough for recomended. Or am i not seeing something correctly. Any help would be excellent since i know that most of you know 100% more than i do about theese things. Thanks guys n gals.

Thanks for the speedy reply! Hope thats what you were asking for. The error message said that the video card may not meet the requirements or something of that matter. (when installing)

The 7450 you're referring to, is actually integrated into your cpu.

The FX series processors are technically APU's, so the memory is shared with system ram.
It is capable of running the game, but will be far from ideal. Any seperate gpu will beat it.

Just figure it was rated higher than the one listed on the Recomended System Requirements so i should be able to have some functionallity. Bought the PC for this game ha.

It is NOT an APU. I opened it up just to see and its definitely a PCI/standalone card. I have the same issue.

Thank you. I've been seeing a lot of this on these forums.

I'm having, and have had since day one, the same issue with my PC with the exact same card. Just horrible frame rates overall.

Unless I crank everything down to low and play in Windowed mode, 1920 x 1080 is horrible slow... even with those concessions it still goes into slow mode with medium to large mobs.

SCHEXP,

Are you sure it wasn't a message about the drivers?

You need to update the ones you have now.

Try these:

I agree with Darkhorse. It'll run, but not well. By well, I mean you may not want to even play it.

To Fairpeter, if you've got the same card as the OP, then you'll never be able to run at 1080p smoothly. There just isn't enough bandwidth and processing power to push that many pixels. Its good for video processing, but not games.

Its got a very slow core, only 160 stream processors, and can only muster around 10gb/s fillrate. As a new card, its not faster than most mainstream cards were 7 years ago. The 7450 is meant as a low power consumption card, using only 9-18 watts of power, compared to 100w to +250w that some desktop cards can use.

Compare that 7450 to what minimum requirements are, and you'll understand why it runs like garbage. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_AMD_graphics_processing_units


I've got this game running on a Quadro 2500M (7900gtxm). I know it'll never run smoothly at 1920x1200(native res of this laptop's screen), so I just move it down to the lowest 16:10 setting I can. Best I can get is 45fps, which is excellent compared to many playing out there.

Edit: since you've confirmed its an addon card, then you're in much better shape than most of the people on these forums reporting slow performance on laptops. You'll just have to upgrade it to something within your budget.

Omrakos,

Is there any way you could confirm what sort of performance we should be seeing with that card, and say, for example a 6 core processor, with 10gb RAM.

With all the drivers updated of course.

Is 1920 x 1080 at medium textures and shadows, etc... with a constant 30fps expecting too much??

Thanks Omrakos, I'm just not sure if i need to download both of those links or just the top one. Sorry for the complete lack of knowledge on this stuff. I appreciate the great help!

Fairpeter I get decent playability with all options turned low or off and am able to keep both FPS sliders maxed. I was just thinking it would be way better than that for the money.

It's basically a rebranded 6450 which is rated in the game as providing low performance. It's really not a good match for that cpu.

It might do ok at the beginning of the game when not much is going on on-screen but I can't imagine it holding up well later on when it get's a lot busier.

Thanks so much, Omrakos! Not the best news, but now I know. :)

Is there a list I can access somewhere, of cards that will allow greater performance?

Fairpeter ,

I like using this one for a basic idea. The cards on top are the best but also the most expensive.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-7.html

It's updated each month as well.

I kinda noticed that comparing stats. Card manufacturers like to rebrand cards. nVidia is the worst at this, but AMD isn't a saint either.

Omrakos, Any news is good news! Thank you. So do you think its in my best interest to move to a Nvidia if im going to upgrade. Any suggestions on a model?
