Thinkpad T440p gaming

I played the Witcher 3 at 720p low detail with the gt 730m and an i7-4700MQ, 16gb ram. I was playing on the laptop’s screen although I did upgrade it to a 1080p screen.

It wasnt perfect but it felt playable for the half hour or so I played it.

Also played the Tomb Raider (2013) reboot last night also at 720p and it was pretty good as well.

I’m surprised at how capable this machine is for 720p gaming.

Anyone else gaming on a t440p?

Trying to game on my T440p. i need to find a reasonably priced 730 motherboard though. prices here are going for 100 usd or more. very werid

it’s tough. I mean, for that price I’d start looking at newer models with a gpu.

exactly. currently im finding ones that are less than 100. sadly buying newer thinkpads isnt really an option. T480’s go for around 500 easily here.

tbh if you want a cheap but decent gaming pc look away from thinkpads. Even an ideapad with a ryzen apu can do a decent job. Better than the gt730m if you give it 16gb ram.

ah no worries, im not really looking to do gaming on my T440p. at the end of the day i just want to upgrade and max it out. its quite fun doing so. just like making your car faster with modifications. if i do really want to game then i have my desktop for that.
