I was wondering if anyone who received the prototypes or the early birds tried gaming with EVE, I would like to know your experience with Overwatch, CS GO, BF 1 or WoW or any other graphic demanding game out there :).
Please share your reviews or recorded stream if possible.
Unfortunately there is hardly any gaming reviews or recorded streams from the prototype testers, but I hope that the below information sheds some light on the gaming performance.
Notebookcheck.net has game performance figures for Intel HD Graphics 615 and for lots of games, Overwatch isn’t included but the others that you mentioned are.
Summa summarum: Intel HD Graphics 615 is pretty poor for gaming.
But V has a USB Type C port with Thunderbolt 3, so you can connect an external graphics accelerator, which improves on these figures. Remember though that the processor has only two cores/four threads and therefore the gaming performance even with an external graphics accelerator is limited.
Well, I only played through the beginning of the tutorial, but from what I can tell it’s not really playable. It’s not a turn-based game, so timing is difficult when it lags. It really gets in the way… As for campaign map, I don’t think I reached that part, lol…
Thanks guys for your feedbacks, really informative. Now we need someone who tested it with an external GPU to give us his feedback ^^ tried asking Dave2D on YouTube but it’s seems like he over look my question
I believe he was only lent the prototype briefly for his hands-on video, so I don’t think he has it anymore. And yeah, since even a year ago, his channel has expanded so much it gets hard to keep up with all of the discussion. It’s somewhat sad (I miss the days when anyone could jump in and get a reply), though I am happy for him for the success (have watched since his reviews of the Moto X Pure/Style).
The V2 has a dedicated TB3 connection for the extras, in addition the Razer core V2 will allow you to use the eGPU and charge your Eve using 1 port. Where as In my case I use the TB3 for the eGPU and charge my Eve using the USB - C.
what are you guys thinking about emulator gaming? I mean older emulators for SNES, Playstation 1 oder SEGA systems. I always loved those old games and wanted to play them while on the go. The solution with an external graphic core doesn’t fit in my use case. I can’t build up my whole setup in a train. xD
Is it possible to play these games on the EVE? Since some emulators can be quite demanding like the dolphin one for gamecube games, I’m a bit worried to be honest how far “light” demanding games go.
How necessary would it be for me to need an eGPU for a game recommending these specs:
OS: Windows 7 64-bit or newer
Processor: 5th Generation Intel i5 CPU or equivalent
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: Geforce 750 Ti or equivalent with 4GB of video RAM
Storage: 6 GB available space
