Hi all,

 

Posted a similar post in the Tech Corner but it didn't look like many people go there!!!

 

I am lucky enough to have a few pennies available and want to get a better laptop for WoT. Being in the fortunate position of having a work laptop for everything else, I will be using the new one primarily for WoT. Would the following spec be good enough to run the game smoothly at 1920 x 1080 HD? Quad core i5 processor (2.3ghz), 8 GB RAM (2x4 DDR 4), GTX 1050 Ti graphics card (4GB), 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD. I have researched quite a bit online but nothing seems to be really specific to WoT other than one site that suggests the grahics will be "ok" and "arguably playable" whatever that means. Does anyone else out there have a similar set up and can let me know how it performs?

 

Thanks again forumites.. :)

I did not know your exact core thus I went with the i5-7400 and came out with an average of 87.5fps, thus it seems reasonable to conclude that the laptop can handle it.

I wonder if this would be enough: ASUS TUF FX505DU-AL031, AMD Ryzen 7-3750H up to 4.0GHz, 15.6" Full HD, 8GB, SSD 256GB, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB?

you will be running this game in about 80 FPS in Ultra settings,

i am using atm i7 3770 + GTX 1050ti +8GB ram +SSD, and i run this game just fine without a problem,

 

make sure to install the game on the SSD though, so you can load the map faster then others :)

The 8300 is one year newer than the 7400 I set in the example thus, as Mr_Chibs has stated above, your average shall be in the 80s (mid to high).

 

1080 @ 60fps is what console users tend to rave about, but on PC you shall easily surpass that figure more often than not.

Well my GTX950 can run WoT at 1080p60 with everything maxed so a 1050Ti is more than adequate for 1080p60, even without overclocking.

I bought a Gigabyte Areo. WoT runs every setting at Ultra, and I get 120fps. The specs are slightly higher than you posted, but the price has dropped since I purchased mine back in November 2018 and they are on special offer now;

Buying an overprized Intel but only 128 GB SSD.

That is dumb.

If it's on a budget, a 128GB SSD for the system boot and dedicated to loading WoT fast is perfectly fine.

 

So it's actually smart.

Enough for most current gaming at fullHD rez.

1050ti is good enough to run WoT smoothly, although not necessarily on ultra HD textures.

 

I'm not too much after eyecandy, so I use SD client. R5 2400g 3,2mhz 4-core + gtx970 give 130-160fps at Max settings,

If you have to ask... good FPS is whatever feels good to you. Some people are completely fine with 30 fps, personally I consider that unplayable outside turn based games. 60 fps is generally the target, as it looks smooth enough and most non-gaming monitors and laptop screens don't have a high enough refresh rate to display more than that anyway.

 

Why are you getting a laptop for gaming though? Unless you absolutely positively have no space for even a SFF build I don't see why you wouldn't just get a desktop system.

Works well on mine,120 GB, though Win 10 & WoT only programs that are loaded on it.

Just remember, as others have said, load WoT onto SSD for a super fast  experience....

Definitely a budget!! I i did my research on this point and the SSD will only be used for WoT so 128gb will be enough for that purpose.

Thanks. It helps to have these things explained. I've not really gamed much online (except XBox) before WoT so all these terms and their importance/relevance are new to me.

Thanks for the advice/confirmation of what I had researched. It's good to know someone else is already doing what I was going to do and that it works.

 

 

Thanks again to everyone for the feedback. Much appreciated.

8gb of RAM is fine, you should specify the model..is the Intel i5 2410M ? 

 

If that is the processor model it is nothing special and is most likely causing a huge bottlenecks to your GPU , you should try overclocking and try to get at least 2.8Ghz to have an increase in performance but remember that this also increases the temperatures.

 

The 1050ti is nothing special as GPU if you want play the game in FHD with ultra settings with HD client but it should also go well with the SD client with ultra settings, you would save so much space on the SSD and you would still have a great 1080p resolution with excellent details and stable FPS.

 

Edit :

My CPU is older than your i5 but still faster than 30% and mine its also overclocked to 3,8 Ghz for daily use

https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-2410M-vs-AMD-Phenom-II-X4-965/2769vs606

 

 

Edit 2:

also with a good overclock of 2.7Ghz your i5 is terrible in single and multi core speed and this decreases the overall performance and does not take full advantage of the multithreading of the graphic engine and obviously causes a slowdown to your GPU

it must also be said that a laptop tends to suffer from cooling problems and this often causes the activation of thermal throttling which decreases the CPU frequency/voltage to let it cool down first and this causes incredible losses of FPS for several seconds.

I advise you to buy this device, my girlfriend uses it on her laptop when she plays wot and her i7 never exceeds 70 degrees, the thermal throttlin is no longer active and can have 60 fixed FPS.

I have a 1050 ti on the old rig. It's on a rig with 12 GB ram and an AMD FX 8150 cpu and a early gen SSD. It runs the game at 60 to 50 FPS depending on map at1080p. As it can run everything on max or high settings. Expect antialiasing and lighting quality. Those need to be off or the 1st notch to keep 60. Lighting quality at max sets the FPS under 20, even if everything else is at low.

As others have mentioned above that system shouldn't have any issues with running WoT, however one thing I'd also like to touch on is "max settings" since there are quite a few things you can turn on in the settings that you most likely won't notice any difference from in terms of looks but you will notice the heat and fan spin from the laptop. The systems I play on are built for my work so for WoT they are quite over the top, however I still turn stuff down or off completely both to get rid of stuff I don't need that just grants me unwanted heat and fan noise but also since there are actually some settings in the game that affects gameplay here are a video about it:
