Laptop Graphics Card

Recommended Posts

hello,

i need some info about graphics card. i have a toshiba equium A210 series 2GB ram, my video card is ATI radeon X1200 (integrated graphics processors) HyperMemory up to 831MB. i recently bought PES 2008, im trying to play it on medium quality resolution (800,600), it plays perfect to a limit until too many players is on the screen at once, den it starts skipping (?frame rate issues?).

i think my graphics card no good, is there a way to improve my IGP or buy a new card/chip or buy an external graphics card. any info will be helpful :)

many thanks

Your laptop has on-board graphics - i.e. no separate graphics card.

I do not believe that you can upgrade it in any way.

These are what Toshiba describes as "gaming" notebooks :-

Unfortunately, your (I think) Equium A210-17I ?? (at approx £500) is best described as one of their "basic" notebooks :(

The UK "gaming" model seems to be this :-

Satellite X200-219

Intel® Centrino® Duo processor technology featuring Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T7500(2.2GHz)/Vista HP/2048MB(1024+1024)RAM + 1GB Intel® Turbo Memory/320GB(160+160)/17"Wide TruBrite® SXGA+/NVIDIA 512MB/HD DVD-ROM/WiFi 802.11agn/BTooth/WebCam

TPP: £1191 ex VAT / £1399 inc VAT

It has "512MB NVIDIA® SLI dual GeForce® 8600M GT supporting TurboCache™"graphics :)

Do check the dates on posts before responding, this one is over four years old and if cajwayne hasn't resolved his laptop graphics issues by now, he probably never will.

My laptop has ATI Radeon 7500 if i'm not wrong. I actually can play PES 2009 with that laptop, even with only 256MB of RAm. But after several hours of playing, i think my laptop's video card can handle the pressure of the game's graphics, so the game will start to lag after several hours. Be careful dude, using that GPU on graphic intensive games can hurt the GPU or make it heat faster. And if your heatsink is broken, slowly but sure, your video card will need a new reballing.
