Unfortunately, I just discovered my old PC is not compatible with UE4. I can’t upgrade hardware because of lack of compatibility.
Can I use UE4 on a notebook, or is the engine too huge?
What kind of notebook can I buy, respecting the UE4 system requirements (ram, cpu, graphic card)… without spending a lot…
What do you think about these?
I think they are too expensive… please give me a hint
You will be abel to run the UE4 on those laptops -> in my lenovo laptop I just have a nvidia gtx 660M
Here you can find some good specs: https://forums.unrealengine/showthread.php?20643-Official-Hardware-Performance-Survey
Im using this one: ://www.amazon/Lenovo-Y580-15-6-Inch-Laptop-Dawn/dp/B009AEPQDI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1410976681&sr=8-1&keywords=Lenovo+IdeaPad+Y580 (but I dont get a high fps rate ^^)
Those are both fine, they use a GTX 860M GPU which is around the middle in terms of performance.
If you really want/need a laptop then pretty much everything with GeForce 6M-8M is gonna be enough, just don’t expect something fancy from it.
I myself use Acer A3-772G with GeForce GTX 740M and it’s enough for my current needs. Although, if I’m gonna start some big project or add oculus rift support (what is unlikely) it will hit performance cap very quickly.
