I checked the supported video card thread and didn't see my video card. I also couldn't get canirunit.com to show my video card because I have a switchable graphics setup (HP laptop) and the website didn't recognize my dedicated GPU, instead it only saw the on-board intel graphics which are weak and slow. The site said I should be way more than fine running D3 at high settings on every aspect of my PC's hardware except video card, but again, the site wouldn't recognize my dedicated card, only the onboard discrete graphics which I wouldn't be using when playing D3.
So this is my question... can anyone comment on whether my laptop would be able to run D3 in at least 720p resolution on close to high settings?
I have an HP dv6t quad edition laptop. In my everyday experience it's pretty fast... I've had zero hiccups anywhere on anything. It runs Windows 7 home premium, has 8GB RAM, a quad-core core i7-2630qm with turbo boost (sandy bridge), switchable graphics with a Radeon 6770m 2GB GDDR5 GPU, and a 1920x1080 native resolution screen. I hook it up to a full 1080p 24" monitor usually, but don't mind running my games at ~720p resolution for better performance if that's what it takes. I'd love to run Diablo 3 at full native resolution if I could.
Do you think D3 would be playable, and if so, any guesses at what kind of settings? I didn't get in on the beta, so I of course haven't been able to test it. I perused many different forums and didn't see a question like this, so this shouldn't be a repeat post...
Given that I couldn't find answers in the video card thread or on canirunit.com, I am posting here. Thanks for any input anyone can provide - I'm fairly well versed with computers, both with software and hardware, but I've not done much with them in many years due to graduate school and other stuff, so a lot of the more current technologies in terms of how powerful they are relative to everything that's out there are unfamiliar to me. I know the sandy bridge 2nd gen core processors are beastly... I'm just not sure how confident I can be in the Radeon 6770m 2GB GDDR5 card I have. At least it's GDDR5 and not DDR3...
