Notebook for X3AP

Post by NEMESIS165 » Sat, 25. May 19, 19:46

Hi . Iam looking to buy new notebook for playing only X3AP . At the moment i have two options :
1. Ryzen 2200U , 4 Gb ram , 128 SSD , integrated vega 3
2. Pentium N4200 , 4 Gb ram , 1 TB HDD , dedicated 2 Gb Radeon 530

Which one will be better for X3AP ? Someone played it on vega 3 ? Because iam not sure if I will be able to run it on integrated graphics

You would more need the Ryzen's core base clockspeed for X3 games but its integrated graphics with no dedicated VRAM is not normally a good idea. The Pentium is just rather slow and low end since X3 games are almost single-core/thread and always cpu-bound rather than gpu-bound.

I wouldn't really advise either as being optimal for X gaming, but the Ryzen is probably your better bet of the two although it does carry risks over the graphics performance. Hopefully someone who has tried X3 on vega 3 can advise you. Good luck.

The real question is, what is your actual budget?

But that then would become a discussion for the Off Topic forum. I think this thread has died anyway so i'll lock it here.
