Windows 7+Vista+XP=WIN COMBO! ’02 laptop gaming

Dell Latitude C640 Laptop

A long  ago i had some fun with this laptop from 2002. It came with Windows 2000 OS.

I did some testing under Windows 7 OS to see if system made before XP debut could run games made in ’04/’05/’06… ON Windows 7!

System:
– Intel Pentium 4 M 1.8 Ghz 512 KB Cache Northwood S478
– 2×256 DDR RAM 266 Mhz
– ATI Radeon Mobility 7500 32 MB DX7
– LCD Resolution 1400×1050 🙂
– Windows 7 Professional x86-32-bit

Videos below proove that even old Windows 2000 era laptop can play Windows XP games with Windows Vista drivers on Windows 7.

Isn’t that just awesome! WINDOWS COMBO FTW! 😀

BENCHMARKS:

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Game runs smooth enough and is playable on lowest settings / 640×480. Video card is unsupported by Windows 7. I had to use Vista generic drivers and games work.

*

Need For Speed: Most Wanted

Game runs fine and is playable on lowest settings – smooth enough.

*

Need For Speed: Underground 2

Game runs good and is playable on lowest settings but hard to say it’s smooth (60 fps) because of occasionally lags.

*

TOCA Race Driver 3

Game runs with awesome framerates because it’s so smooth while playing. No stuttering, no lags on this old video card.

*

Colin McRae Rally 04

Game runs awesome. It is so smooth while playing. No stuttering, no lag.

*

Ford Racing 3

Gameplay is smooth. No stuttering, no lag.

*

TrackMania Nations Forever

Game runs very smooth. No lag at all. Fluid gameplay.
