Samsung N510: 3D graphics tested with Doom 3 [Video]

August 27, 2009 at 8:42 pm

Doom IIISamsung’s ION-powered N510 netbook should bring a new level of 3D graphics performance compared to current netbooks. For those wondering just how well it fares with games then it may be worth checking out the video below. It showcases how playable Doom 3 is on the N510.

The Doom3 timedemo was first played at a 640×480 resolution where a FPS of 18 was achieved. Cranking the resolution up to 1024×768 lowered the FPS to 16. Whilst this may seem disappointing, it is worth pointing out that Doom 3 was one of the most graphical intensive games back in 2004. Yes, it may be 5 years old but it can still be relatively demanding on low-end desktop PCs.

HD YouTube performance was also tested and played fine apart from in full-screen mode (hardly surprising). However, the content played fine when downloading the file and playing it through VLC. Check out the Doom 3 video after the jump.

    Those Doom 3 benchmarks were inaccurate due to the settings in the Nvidia control panel being incorrect. The reviewer has since reposted results with the graphics card configured properly and achieved frame rates of just under 30 at the same resolutions as tested before. Looks like the ION platform is capable after all.
