I’m not talking newer, relatively expensive chipsets like the mobile versions of the 960, 1060 and up. I want to buy a used laptop on ebay, and I want to look at the cheaper ones that will still run certain old games.
I would like to play some older games, in the Source engine. Left 4 Dead 2, Portal 2. Maybe the game, “Insurgency”, but that’s not a Source engine game. I don’t know which CPU/GPU combos would run those 2 or 3 games at about 50+ FPS at 1080p, with most of the eye candy turned on.
AMD has some new CPUS that have gpus built in. Generally, those sort of things aren’t good gpus, but these are said to be pretty good, and I suspect they might be able to handle an older game like the ones I mentioned above. Would they? Probably not a lot of laptops with those on the used market yet, but you never know, so I thought I’d ask.
I’m not limiting it to those AMD chips, just mentioning them in particular. I’d like to know of ANY older, potentially inexpensive laptop cpu/GPU combo that would run the above games fairly well.
