I am experiencing an exchange of PC because my current notebook (one MBP), is not holding run Unreal 4, I decided to create a thread where people could post the settings of their machines and a summary of how the Unreal is running them with this, users who want to build a PC only to develop using Unreal, had a small hardware guide.
If you can post following the following model:
======= Username =========
Type: <Desktop/Laptop>(If you find interesting, add model name)
Processor: <Processor model>
Memory: <Ram amount>
Graphics: <Graphic Card Model>
Average fps: <Average fps you can reach the editor>
Settings: <Special settings you have made for a better performance in the editor>
Notes: <Comments you wish to make>
Hardware Feedback List
======= Weskey =========
OS: Mac OSx 10.9.2
Type: Laptop (Macbook Pro 8,1)
Processor: 2.3 Ghz Intel i5 Sandy Brigde
Graphics: Intel HD3000
Average fps: 4~5fps
Settings: I disabled Tonemapper in viewport’s Show->Post Processing menu.
Notes: At first I was running at 1~2fps, I disabled Tonemapper, and he went 4~5fps, then tried to disable all other post-processing effects, but the average fps, continued this value.
Try to edit the level is a pain, but it is possible to work quietly with blueprints.
