3D on ATI Radeon xpress 200m?

6 posts in this topic

I have a Fujitsu Siemens Laptop running Vista Premium with 2gb Ram

The onboard graphics cards is an ATI Radeon xpress 200M

Will this be able to run the 3D Match Engine?

Thanks

Trevor

I have the same graphics card on a Fujitsu Siemens laptop with 894 MB RAM (at least that's what it shows in Properties :)) running on Vista Home...

Although I thought 3D wouldn't work - it hasn't passed the test that I found somewhere on the forum - it does actually work on the demo. I selected Low graphical detail under Display & Sound, and ticked only Show Player Names (no stadiums or sky - who needs those, right? ;)) - and it works...

Can't say it's the experience of a lifetime but pulling it off when "The Test" clearly told me I couldn't... priceless :D

I have this card in my laptop and 1gb ram. As Presley said, it does work but is very jerky even on the lowest detail.

The Radeon Xpress 200m is a pretty versatile card but sadly lacking in overall power.

I had one in my old advent laptop and I was quite suprised when it ran (in low res, medium settings) Call of Duty 2, Far Cry, Half-Life 2 and Stalker.

I did once try Crysis on it... after finally managing to exit the 1fps slideshow (all low) I quickly uninstalled it.

Considering though that the 200m is nowhere near as good as the old 9800 pro, the fact that it can run 3d on FM is a pretty amazing feat.

Hey there. I have a different laptop but i have the same graphics card. I created a thread the other day seeing what other peoples performance was on the card and then at the end posted how to improve the performance which i did.

So just go here and you will see what to do! Happy gaming!

I would also advise trying the demo and they are releasing a patch(on release day) which will improve the 2D further but not sure if it will improve the 3D. Have to wait and see i guess.

i regulary play farcry on my laptop with the same card as you , the graphics are amazing and i can play it on high settings if it cant run the fm2009 graphics then i suspect the fm graphics engine hasnt been optimized much.
