If you’re like me, you got super hyped about the release of Fallout 4 by Bethesda. My problem is that my laptop was released about 6 years ago so I was wondering if my machine could run the game at a smooth fps rate.

Well I’ve got great news for you.

Beginning with the introductions, my laptop is an HP Pavilion with an intel core i7 3610QM (2th generation) at 2.3GHz, 8 GB of ram, A nVidia GPU G630M with 2GB dedicated memory.

According to system requirement labs, this machine should not be able to run, even at a low definition. But I decided to give it a try with a help of a friend that bought the game.

We install the game, set it to the lowest definition possible and run it at full screen.

The game behaves nicely, some lag, but quite enjoyable. That was until I went to an area crowded with enemies. The lag became so high that the game was unplayable. I was ready to quit trying but then remembered that a few months ago I tried to run The Witcher 3 on this same machine and couldn’t do it in an enjoyable fashion. Until I change the graphic settings to window mode with border. So I decided to try it out with Fallout 4 and magic happened.

The game behaves magnificently, steady fps, smooth gameplay. The details are not as excellent as on a high-end machine, but if you’re in a hype to try this game and have a machine as old as mine, with similar specs, you can give it a try.

Cheers and happy gaming!
