Unreal Engine 3 games make the bit memory bus on the M G and GS cry bloody murder, and Crysis barely runs playably. The run definitely dipped and chopped a little in parts, but was for the most part very smooth. I had to drop all the settings down to High and from there, the game ran fine. Here, mercifully, that performance is again playable. Far Cry ran fine maxed out in indoor areas, but the instant I went outdoors the game crawled badly. A little bit of tweaking can probably bring that 29 up over 30, but I found it plenty playable at these settings. Gameplay is plenty smooth and viable in this game, a game that just a few short years ago was being used to punish hardware just like Crysis is today.

So consider this a heads-up: As traditional, I used the built sg stress test that comes with Half-Life 2: With the increased video memory should come a small but respectable boost in performance.

Something that promised us improved performance instead strangles even high end hardware, leaving it as a checkbox feature on lower class parts. While the GeForce M GS is a pretty respectable performer, especially given its commonality, it does suffer from one major problem: Unreal Engine 3 games xell the bit memory bus on the M G and GS cry bloody murder, and Crysis barely runs playably.
It comes to ts in a custom-built HP dvt.
nVidia 8400M GS Graphics Review
Features that were exposed in XP are also absent here, at least in the driver my notebook came with — the same driver most users will stick with dlel than going through the hassle of using a laptopvideo2go driver.
Here, mercifully, that performance is again playable. Far Cry is a pretty old game at this point, materializing around the same time Doom 3 did, and with the delo of shader power modern graphics leverage sixteen unified shaders is still pretty healthy it should be a non-issue.
Far Cry ran fine maxed out in indoor areas, but the gd I went outdoors the game crawled badly. Still, the M GS is a fantastic choice for older games, and a pretty reasonable one for modern and future games.
nVidia M GS Graphics Review
Hardware wise, the M GS boasts a minimal bit memory bus and 16 unified shaders, offering the bare minimum for basic gaming performance.
Here, the M GS acquits itself admirably as nVidia hardware traditionally does in these games. It is the go-to mass dedicated graphics part for both Dell and HP, the two biggest notebook retailers in North America.
The run definitely dipped and chopped a little in parts, but was for the most part very smooth. I had to drop all the settings down to High and from there, the game ran fine. Crysis is unquestionably the most demanding game available, and bears inclusion as a representative of what games in the future probably at least six months into the future may require of hardware.

Generally regarded as still a fairly punishing the game, my experience with it has found it to be remarkably forgiving of even integrated graphics hardware.
As a sidenote, a friend of mine played through the vast majority of Portal on this system at these 8400m and it was definitely smooth enough there. The M GS is more or less the bottom of the barrel for mobile dedicated graphics, yet it offers very reasonable performance and runs modern games at better-than-minimum settings.
It remains comparable to its desktop counterpart. Lost Coast, which I think is an excellent indicator of how the card will handle Source engine games.
UT3 is definitely playable here, but Unreal Engine 3 in general seems to really throttle memory bandwidth, as I was met with similarly poor performance in Rainbow Six: But all other games should have few problems with the M GS.

I have, however, added Crysis. This was actually kind of a struggle.
Of course, the big question is:
