I have used this since beginning of 2017 with my i7 4710hq. Runs gta v on high at smooth 60fps. doom eternal 1080p low at 5-60fps. Doom 2016 on high at 70-100fps and team fortress 2 at 100-300 fps on max settings. GREAT Gpu

It's seems that it can play games with more ram demands, like wolfenstein the new collossus (which requires 4 gb ram, the card have only 3).

I have used this in my alienware 15 R1 for 6 years. Its been a good card. I have even multiboxed (4 accounts) in D3 and it ran it fairly well. However, in 2021 it is definitely showing its age.. If I can sqeeze another 6 months out of it I will be pleased.

Awesome card, even in 2021. I have it mounted in in my Clevo p651re, after 4 years of constant beating it still rocks the world. Warthunder in full window mode(best for Nvidia cards) Like a Movie settings 54 fps with 2560x1080 external monitor.

I have a 6GB variant on the laptop, performing pretty great even 6 years after purchase.

Still an option for budget laptops but other than that, it's a pretty useless card.

It WAS a ok mobile card.

Honestly, at the moment, if you're going budget for laptop gaming, it will do its job and it will do it very well. This graphics card will run most games that you want it to run, at mostly high settings, and other games will run at max. As for around three or four years ago, this graphics card was very powerful for all types of gaming and could perform most tasks with ease. It compares with a GTX 1050Ti which during the time of this card was pretty good.
