A new low for toasters

In this thread about upcoming changes to League of Legends, which includes a graphics upgrade, some people are worried that they will no longer be able to run the game. One person posted that they currently run the game at the lowest settings and get 15-25FPS.

What kind of prehistoric calculator are you running LoL on to get 15-25FPS at the lowest settings? How is that even possible? Are we talking on-board graphics here? Under-clocked 486? IMAX screen resolution?

Mind. Blown.

    The problem is that most big box stores sell computers to people with shockingly bad video hardware, and these people have no clue of how to upgrade and that there are, in fact, very good low cost options to get reasonably good gaming performance for just a couple bucks.

    They don’t advertise what display adapter is installed, and the average consumer doesn’t even know how to ask. They just know “Oh, I bought a top of the line computer from Future Shop! It should run everything!” Then complain how, after a year, it’s totally outdated and can’t do anything.

    I’ve seen it happen, over and over. Saddens me.

    My guess is it’s a Laptop.

    Nowadays the default computer choice for most people is a laptop chosen for the colour of its plastic lid rather than its 3D graphics ability and as Derrick said never underestimate the capability of High street computer stores to push a flashy looking box that has less capability than a ten year old gaming rig.

    When I visit my parents, I like to play an odd game of LoL in the evening, and since they only have onboard Intel Gfx accelerator, I do get about 20 fps on the lowest settings possible. Nothing wrong with that, just like there is nothing wrong running it at 80 fps, when I am at home.
