So that is more of a game issue than system its ran on?

Thanks for the post on save on laptops

Would it be a fair assumption to make that if I run nothing in 3D on FM then a dedicated graphics card would not be needed?

What is the main difference (FM wise) between a "U" processor and a "H" or "HQ" processor ? Would a "H" in an 4th or 5th gen in i3 be better than a i7 7 gen "u"? Hope that makes sense!

True - it's just a heads up about your game you may end up seeing quality players without a club.

I believe even the 2D match engine runs off the graphics card now - so best to future proof. Even without a dedicated graphics card the price is quite high for a decent laptop.

 

FM wise - it's processor intensive, so you want your processor to work under high stress loads, which FM is, and the more career years the more intensive the processing (because of accumulation of data), so a U processor, U stands for Ultra-Low Power which has a low Thermal Design Power (TDP). The processor will go to a lower frequency (ghz speed) in order to conserve power and prevent the chip from getting too hot.

 

H is for high performance graphics

HQ is for high performance graphics quad core

HK is high performance graphics unlocked

This is my pc, will it run FM 19 well? As in fairly quick advancing and such, as I intend on a very long save. Possibly 100+ years 

Aye, that should be fine for what you're asking.

Just to echo @JordanMillward_1 - that should be perfectly fine.

Hi, I'm after a new laptop that will run FM19 fairly well and has a decent enough spec in general. My initial budget was £400-£500 but I have seen this laptop priced at £560 which looks promising, please let me know what you think.

Hopefully it means more of those kinds of chips come out to give a cheaper option for those that don't want to shell out hundreds of pounds on a card with 8 fans, 4 wheels, tea-making facilities and 4 million gaudy LEDs

IT will work for FM - but I have no idea what your expecatations are for game play.

This is same price but the graphics card is slightly less - but a better processor

The graphics card would be fine for FM.

True. I already have this pc is why I asked about it specifically, was making sure I was fine before I buy the game and get disappointed
