i recently bought a new comp and it has an INTEL PROSET II graphics card.. now i play Battlefield 1942 on the highest settings, and it works fine.. my question is, will it work for planetside

I'm pretty sure that intel proset 2 is a NIC interface utility.

Please do this
click start, then run and type in: dxdiag

click on the display tab and look at where it says name.

please type inn the full name in a reply =)

Intel makes graphics cards? I wasn't aware of that, thought they just made good processors:confused:

2003-02-16, 05:25 PM
oops wrong thing... any way. will PS work on an intel 82845 GL
graphics card?

It meets the required specs of running a dx8.1 game but the memory bandwith on it is really low

expect poor performance once you get more people on the screen.

2003-02-16, 05:35 PM
it has 64 mb so isnt it supposed to run good..?? if i run it on really low settings will it run? i could run battlefield 1942 on high but i just do it on low.. the graphics look the same to me

2003-02-16, 05:40 PM
It's not the onboard MB of the card, i looked at the spec sheet of it and the bandwith between the card and the cpu wasn't all that big. I imagen it will run PS alright whitout to manny fancy options but once things get heavy on the screen (alott off things on it) the poor bandwith will slow things down.


can you play whit it? yes

can you expect a good performance in heavy (20 people+ i guess) battle? i doubt it.

well if it doesnt work good, then i am going to buy an ATI radeon 9500 AGP 128 mb.. are those any good?

2003-02-16, 05:43 PM
You can get that yeah

but be sure to get a 9500 PRO version... if you can't get a pro version then get a GF4ti 4200 128MB DDR ram and overclock it.. the ti4200 are really great for overcloking.

2003-02-16, 05:46 PM
doesnt that void the warrenty?

2003-02-16, 05:48 PM
yup it does.

the ti4200 will work fine whitout overclocking it. but it's pretty safe to overclock it, havn't heard of annyone getting theirs ruined whit mild overclocking.

2003-02-16, 05:49 PM
yeah but i have never bought a graphics card before

2003-02-16, 05:53 PM
More than happy to answer anny questions =)

2003-02-16, 06:00 PM
ok here is something.. i just benchmarked my system, and the whole time it stayed from 25 to 35 fps, it had alot of action in the demo too.. so do you think ill still have a problem?

2003-02-16, 06:02 PM
What benchmark did you use?

2003-02-16, 06:04 PM

2003-02-16, 06:08 PM
did you run the 3dmark01 or 3dmark03? i really doubt you ran the 03 cause only the radeon 9700 pro's get 30 FPS in it

2003-02-16, 06:09 PM
it was 01.. but is the framerate still good for me?

2003-02-16, 06:13 PM
30 fps in 01? sorry to say but thats fairly bad

edit: do you have a link to some more details? can you upload your test and post the link to the results?
