what is your gpu? I checked and Im sure my videocard should be able to handle the game at max. But even with medium settings I have found that there's drop frame during massive magic battle (espcially in inferno act 3). I have the latest Nvidia driver update so I don't think it's my gpu neither.
have you have any drop frame with yours? or are you able to get max setting without drop frame even during intense battle?
thanks for the reply btw.
We don't have the same GPU. Mine is a Mobility FireGL V5700. Its a 4 year old mobile GPU.
NO, I can not play the game on my laptop at max native resolution, which is pretty high (1920x1200), so I have to drop it down to (1280x800) and put a fan under the GPU side of the laptop.
YES, I do get frame drops during large battles + animations. This is, in fact, normal and expected for ANY GPU (more work = less FPS).
I checked your GPU card score here:
Your card (score: 705) is not bad for a laptop
, but don't expect it to run games at max settings without choking. I know D3 is not graphics intensive, but you have to consider that laptop GPUs do get worse performance over time due to thermal compound drying out on the heatsinks. Thus, they overheat, and depreciate in expected performance.
My best guess
, is that you should expect an avg of 45-50 FPS on your laptop during normal play, and about 20-30FPS during large battles. Its just an educated guess.
