Gameplay is plenty smooth and viable in this game, a game that just a few short years ago was being used to punish hardware just like Crysis is today.
The run definitely dipped and chopped a little in parts, but was for the most part very smooth. Features that were exposed in XP are also absent here, at least in the driver my notebook came with — the same driver most users will stick with rather than going 84000m the hassle of using a laptopvideo2go driver.
With the increased video memory should come a small but respectable boost in performance. Hardware wise, the M GS boasts a minimal bit memory bus and 16 unified shaders, offering the bare minimum for basic gaming jvidia.
It is the go-to mass dedicated graphics part for both Dell and HP, the two biggest notebook retailers in North America. Far Cry ran fine maxed out in indoor areas, but the instant I went outdoors the game crawled badly. Of course, the big question is: But all other games should have few problems with the M GS. Something that promised us improved performance instead strangles even high end hardware, leaving it as a checkbox feature on lower class parts.

Generally regarded as still a fairly punishing the game, my experience with it has found it to be remarkably forgiving of even integrated graphics hardware. Unreal Engine 3 games make the bit memory bus on the M G and GS cry bloody murder, and Crysis barely runs playably. Still, the M GS is a fantastic choice for older games, and a pretty reasonable one for modern and future games. Crysis is unquestionably the most demanding game available, and bears inclusion as a representative of what games in the future probably at least six months into the future may require of hardware.
Lost Coast, which I think is an excellent indicator of how the card will handle Source engine games. It remains comparable to its desktop counterpart. The M GS is more or less the bottom of the barrel for mobile dedicated graphics, yet it offers very reasonable performance and runs modern games at better-than-minimum settings.
I have, however, added Crysis. A little bit of tweaking can probably bring that 29 up over 30, but I found it plenty playable at these settings.
It comes to me in a custom-built HP dvt. I had to drop all the settings down to High and 840m0 there, the game ran fine.
Far Cry is a pretty old game at this point, materializing around the same time Doom 3 did, and with the kind of shader power modern graphics leverage sixteen unified shaders is still pretty healthy it should be a non-issue.
UT3 is definitely playable here, but Unreal Engine 3 in general seems to really throttle memory bandwidth, as I was met with similarly poor performance in Rainbow Six: So consider this a heads-up: Here, mercifully, that performance is again playable.
The M GS has no problems with Source engine games.

This was actually kind of a struggle. Here, the M GS acquits itself admirably as nVidia hardware traditionally does in these games. While the GeForce M GS is a pretty respectable performer, especially given its commonality, it does suffer from one major problem: As traditional, I used the built in del test that comes with Half-Life 2: As a sidenote, a friend of gd played through the vast majority of Portal on this system at these settings and it was definitely smooth enough there.
