3DMark and Games

Laptops aren’t always used for work, so we’re going to test how well the Asus W5F performs in various games from the past and present. The Compaq V2410 was configured to use 128MB of memory. More details on game settings appear at the end of this page.

It really goes without saying that playing games on the Asus W5F is not really a viable option. Older games like Age of Mythology have problems and in most cases the lowest possible graphics setting wasn’t enough to get playable frame rates. The integrated Intel GMA 950 graphics is not enough to play most games well.

There’s really no need to show you the next few results since the above games already paint an accurate picture, but for the sake of completeness here are the 3DMark results.
