      Search up fortnite or any game actually optimize commands

    • Verly.MusicUuu

      So true! My laptop specs around 3 years ago when I started playing was an I7-6600u, 16GB DDR4 ram, 512GB ssd and it could run 1080p 100% res on medium settings with 40-60 FPS average. Now the laptop doesn’t even run 60fps on 720 100% res. They really f*cked up their game:(

      @INCREDIBLE SAM that could be bro but also is that Fortnite depends more of FPS


      maybe its because of wear and tear time gave? try giving it a modification and a servicing at a good place will make it more than usable

    I played years ago with a 7700K and a 1070, with a solid 32 gigs of ram. thing that really brings it down is the 2TB HDD. Acer Predator G3-710 so fairly old but specd up.

  • nixk

    Back when the game didn't have Kratos default dancing😥

  • ømř.

    Its funny how after 2 years u can finally run this game on the 200$ laptop and have a playable fps

    • ToastViktor

      true and thats kinda nice to be honest now i can finally play fortnite lol

    The oddest thing with my Windows 7 (64-bit) computer. I was able to play fortnite up until the most recent season release. Suddenly, fortnite demanded that I update my video driver. I tried that, and began a series of unfortunate performance events such that I gave up and decided to buy a new computer. Yes, that's drastic. Still, running a self-test on my unfortunate computer revealed two error codes for hard drive, one for memory fan, and one for network. That salved my conscience, as it revealed to me that my old Windows 7 pc is on it's last leg anyway.

  • 𝔏

    I usually have 100-200 fps in season 3 chapter 2 it is infact pretty smooth

    I play on Celeron G1610 2.6GHz, 4GB RAM DDR3 1333MHz, AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series 2GB VRAM and 230GB HDD, 30FPS low settings 64% 3D resolution at 720p. It's actually better than it sounds.

  • vGamer

    I run it on a £400 laptop that can only run the game up to 30 fps and it does lag a fair bit and I can't make the graphics super high but it gets the job done

  • Piepopipo

    Lol i had a laptop from 2012 and i used to play fortnite with it. The experience was very similar to the 200 laptop one

      @Pedro What the fuck? Who spends 100 bucks on a mouse, and then plays with a fucking controller? My laptop only costs about 5-600 bucks, doesn't really run fortnite that well but that's fine, and I also bought an $9-11 mouse, along with like 7-9 bucks on my headset, and they work perfect. 100 bucks for a mouse is too much

    Just to see how far I could take it, I tried a Dell T7400 series workstation from 2009. It has dual quad core Xeon 5405 CPUs @ 2 ghz. It has 16 gigs of DDR2, along with an ATI Radeon 5450. The game actually plays very smoothly at the 3rd res all the way up to 1440x900 (the resolution of my monitor). It runs at 60 fps without any lagging or dropped frames. Overall, I am very impressed!

    • Flying Banana
      Flying Banana

      @Not Vix You can buy the Acer aspire 5 with a Ryzen 3 CPU, with built in vega 3 graphics, and 4 gb of ram. But I recommend adding another stick of ram to it. The aspire 5 is right now $350 and if you get it turn off Windows 10 S mode. You should be able o play Fortnite at low settings and get about 60 fps with no lag. Also turn off shadows and play at 720p. You can also play GTA, PUBG, and many more games.
