You're going to have problems, optimization or not. I would go 8 gig (I have 16) ram at a minimum and look at what options you have upgrading your card. I have always used desktops, so I may not be the best advisor. Generally, unless you have to have portability (which you will more than likely suffer from due to wifi latency issues anyway), it's better to go with a hard wired desktop with good internet (I have pretty good at 100 Mbps down and 12 up, though I pay for it!)..

I have the same concern. I'm about to leave for Brazil for a month. I'm taking my laptop with me. It has an i7, 16 gb ram and 735m card.

 

This more or less, but upgraded to 16 gb ram and has an SSD now:

I tried running it before and it was worse than a slideshow. Basically frozen solid. I'd really like to test a bit while I'm there. Gets super hot and seems to throttle itself.

 

Any advice appreciated.

You're both going to have to turn the resolution way down to get anything near a terrible framerate. Specifically try 800x600 or smaller if you can get it. For heat issues you'll need to get one of the coolers/fans you can put on the bottom of your laptop. Outside of that however, you're stuck waiting on ACE to optimize it.

Sorry but I don't think you'll be able to play at any reasonable pace (20fps maximum with super low resolution).

Check if you can upgrade the GPU of the laptop... that's usually the only solution.

You should be fine BCG even now without optimization you should be getting I'd guess around 30fps on medium settings assuming you have 8+ gigs ram. It may struggle a bit more during combat though.

Just look at the minimum specs for Alpha.

 

These specs will likely be increased as the game moves towards launch.

 

Can you run it?  Sure!  But that doesn't mean that you will be able to enjoy it.

New processor is good but it has small speed of communicating with the res of your computer. 1,6 GHz is a half of the testing requirements. And your memory card is small and old... Try it if you have it, but I doubt it will work.

Originally the game seemed pretty rough on gaming laptops (HD/SP Era) but the recent tests have been much better, by much better I don't mean it can't use some more optimization but it's definitely come a ways. I would say yes, I play on a 3 yr old MSI gaming lap top and don't have to many issues, I do plan on buying a new one closer to release. A new PC would be ideal but with conferences and hotels I prefer laptops for my needs.

I would upgrade a little man. Once the full-release game comes out your laptop will not even come close to running it. You can purchase really nice laptops with at least a gtx 960m for under a $1000 now.

I got a el-chep-o new laptop and it works.  either way 4 GB RAM will be an issue

Acer-Aspire-3

3.6 GHz

AMD Radeon R5 Graphics

8 GB DDR4 Ram

 

Crowfall runs fine on this
