I am sure it will work fine. Frostbite 2 will be heavily optimized since it is being made for pc then being ported to consoles. Instead of the other way around.

Played Demo. I will save my opinions to last.

Settings - As High as all settings would go (Shadows Ultra, Everything else High, 2xAA and 2xAF).

Benchmark --> Constant 60fps (vsync enabled)

System: GPU set to 750/900.

Here are some screenshots

My thoughts - Doesn't feel like the old Ds1 or Ds2. The graphics are not great but the plus is that this game will probably run on just about any system which is a good selling point. It seems to be a pretty standard dungeon crawler. Not worth 50 bucks in my opinion but maybe a good sale or steam sale it might be worth a purchase.

Standard skill tree's, break barrels for loot (wash rinse repeat).

Thanks for reading,

This game will be epic for sure. The footage is ultra realistic... I am really looking forward to this game.

Thanks for uploading Steven, let me ask you, did you use a joystick or the mouse and the keyboard?

I don't think the m14x will be able to play it. Just saw an interview with one of the developers and he said he wasn't playing it maxed out. There isn't a computer that has been built yet that can play it maxed. When I find the interview I will post the link.

Hehe I want. But anyways, I saw ps3 footage on Jimmy falon tonight or whatever his name is and it looks horrible. The devs said upfront you can't play it at 1080p and it won't go above thirty fps. They just pulled a major crysis :P

Well, I don't really care about the performance of the console version. I really hate that most games are optimized for consoles and not for PCs.

Anyway, here's a comparison between the PC graphics and the console graphics:

I made a new video and will upload tonight to youtube as it's 750mb. It shows how the nvidia 555mGT scales at 720p, 900p and 1080p. I actually play Battlefield Bad Company 2 at both 720p and 1080p. High settings, low shadows. We will easily be able to play Battlefield 3 on the M14x.

I made this video because i am beyond tired of the whine bags at NBR that are full of bad information and quote links and info they have no clue about.

Remember BFBC2 is made with the frostbite 1.5 engine. BF3 is made with frostbite 2.0.

I can't wait to play BF3 on the m14x. I hope to be the first to publish the video of actual Game play.

well ill start by saying that this little monster (no pun intended) can run F3AR at a nice frame rate at max setting with FxAA and vsync at a whopping 35FPS.

the game tends to spike up to 60fps but never goes below 30fps. through my play though the game never dipped below 32FPS and that is with every guard shooting at me and explosions going on all around.

OC'd GPU used. OC @ 750/1500/1080

Micro review:

NO spoilers :D

this game was fun, it take the player to some strange locations all the while being talked to by a strange voice. the best way to describe what the atmosphere looks like would be a mixture of satanism and Halloween.

alas f3ar does not live up to its name, for a title with an intense emotion as its name that game does not strike fear into the players, but it does make them feel uncomfortable (in a good way).

overall 7.5/10

Thanks for the mini-review.

The original game scared the shit out of me, I'll never get over little girls in red dresses.

Hey everyone! First post here! Just ordered a m14x so I'll be able to join in in less than a month :80:

Just wanna see if anyone here plays any MMO? When I was ordering the laptop I forgot to check the performance one this one game (I was rushing to do the paper work for financing.)

Anyways, the gameply Im interested to see is Final Fantasy xiv on their m14x. Or a benchmark is fine too, just want to know what am I getting myself into, thank!

Thanks alex for the review..I play at very high settings for shadows and textures no aa and no ssao...also if you enable AA in the nvidia profile to 2xAA you take much less frame hit...I am getting over 70 fps with spikes to 95.

Hard to explain now but every game has a whitelist profile..so vyou disable AA in game and set the nvidia profil profile to 2xAA ... this way bits only. 5 frame hit than 20-25 fps.. again thanks..I will post video late tonight. Got a new method ofb recording... stevenx

oh i see how yo got such high FPS, i was on 900p with all very high and ssao.... i should of turned that off as on bfbc2 it kills the FPS,

nice vid tho Steven :D

also why do you play with V-sync off? better fps?

V-Sync limits the FPS to stop tearing on the screen. Pretty much always leave it off unless youre getting like 80fps or above.

      So I just received a 980m in the post and after installing it I was greeted by multiple system crashes on my Alienware m17xr4 and was unable to install new drivers.

      Is there a step in the intallation process I missed? A bios setting I was supposed to change? The laptop is already set to UEFI mode in preperation for this and upon putting the old 680m back in the system it now works again. I have heard that I need to change INI files to install drivers but I expected it to at least function without large bugs such as these. Do you think that this GPU is faulty or have I done something wrong?
       
      Thanks for any help you can give.

      Hi,
       
      I've recently got my hands on an M17x R4 Alienware Laptop from 2013 which I love. I've replaced the screen, keyboard, RAM, and hard drive to make it into a fully modern laptop. However, I'm currently waiting on a replacement for the 680m GPU with a 980m from ebay. My question for you all is, do I need to do anything with the BIOS to make this 980m work? Is there a way to prevent the laptop from using Intel HD Graphics with Optimus? I think the Intel HD Graphics on this laptop are currently broken as I see static-looking dots flash on the screen. (See image below for example). My theory is that because Intel HD Graphics with Optimus is still in-use while in-game, the dots are being caused by it.
       
      Thanks for any help in advance.

      I have spent a little time in the past few days looking around this site. I would love for someone to point me in the right direction to a forum that has information that could help me out with my problem.
       
      I have a:
       
      Alienware M17XR3 
      Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
      Intel I7-2820QM 2.3
      Bios InsydeH20 Version 1.0 A12
      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M
      (4x) 4 GB Ram
      samsung 2.5" 256 SSD (SATA3.0Gbps)
       
      It has been an amazing machine for the last 10+ years. Minor issues, nothing that an Alien Respawn could not fix, till now! On battery power it works just perfect.  Then I plug it in and it's all OK until I try to do anything, and then the screen goes white. The screen sometimes goes yellow, sometimes blue, but mostly white screen. It will do nothing until I do a hard reset (holding the power button till it turns off and turn it back on) with the power unplugged.  If the power is not unplugged then it will go through boot up to windows swirling dots then go white again. If I plug it in and do nothing I can charge it, unplug and continue what i was doing. I have tried a lot of solutions bouncing around the internet, and thought I was having a DC Jack connection issue (replaced the ac/dc power adapter, then the motherboard). I get a better connection now but with the same white screen result. I stumbled into this forum and I'm hoping to find solutions to my issues.  Then upgrade like so many others have.
       
      Any ideas, comments or suggestions welcome.
       
      Thank you in advance!
