Graphics problams/specs


(Doug Cowperthwaite ODZ (C)) #1

I’m getting a lot of severe artifacts (green walls, etc.), so it looks like my graphics processor is not up to the task. Using a Dell Precision M4600 laptop: Core 17 vPro, 8 GB RAM, ATI FirePro M5950/M8900 Mobility graphics with 1 GB, which seems to meet the minimum specs. Driver is the latest. After experiencing a BSOD while exiting the game, I did update the BIOS, which improved performance some, but introduced more flickering. Just wondering whether anyone is running a similar configuration.

I may try using my wife’s laptop for comparison, but the specs on that one aren’t quite as good (at least on paper).

Did you try cleaning dust out of the fan exhaust? My desktop card was overheating and crashing Zwift at first but it was fine once I turned up the fan speed to ~80%. But my card is also a 670gtx with 3gb ram. Your laptop gpu probably has an auto adjusted fan, but I believe there is a ATI Tool utility that may give you manual control of the fan. Pump it up to 100%!
