how about gaming? i wanna install COD Black Op.
I bought the version with the 1007U and added 4GB ram to get dual channel. The GPU when plugged in is running constant at 1000 Mhz and my memory is at 1600Mhz. With that being said this is the weakest IB gpu and it is far from a gaming gpu.
So while I highly doubt that COD Black Ops will work, lighter games and games where having fluid 30+ fps all the times is not important do work. I have tried WoW, Torchlight 1/2, Warhammer 40K DoW and even XCOM EU / EW and FIFA run pretty decent.
I get the following benchmark results:
3DMark 06 - 3490 | 3DMark 11 - P374 | 3DMark Vantage - 1579 | 3DMark Ice - 20664
3DMark Fire 245 | 3DMark Could - 1877 | CB11.5 OpenGL 9.88fps | CB11.5 CPU 1.23
PCMark 7 - 1611 | PCMark Vantage - 4085 |
So it's far from gaming machine but for the price is decent and it's much faster than my old Atom netbook. I can run MatLab and light CAD models in Inventor / Catia for university and with light load get 6+ hours of battery life so I am pretty happy with it
