but they did say there were third party options for upgrading to higher cards.
E6540 here. AMD Radeon HD 8970M Graphics 2GB GDDR5, seems to chug along in UE4 OK. Of course I will be building a real PC, this is just from work. I am surprised to hear that you actually brought your E6530 around with the DK1, that lists NVIDIA®NVS™5200M (GDDR5 1GB), did that run fast framerates for the demos like rift coaster? Or was it a slideshow.
I am thinking that if you had success with the NVIDIA®NVS™5200M (GDDR5 1GB) then I might be able to get away with this AMD Radeon HD 8970M Graphics 2GB GDDR5 for DK2 (for demoing it out cause I wont be lugging a huge PC to my friends')
Thanks eepoole4 that is an interesting idea, I'll look at the build you listed.
