Gamers today spoil with the higher graphic details and high performance, to fulfill the needs of gamers enthusiasm specially the mobile gamers. Apparently, this mobile gamers market segment has become important for the computer’s manufacturer, just like this Acer Acer Aspire 5943G Notebook which dedicated for gamers.
Beneath the grey and silver exterior a raging heart beats, because the 5943G calls on an Intel Core i7-740QM chip for its processing muscle (a model with an i5 chip is also available for around £1,215). The i7 sits towards the higher end of Intel’s quad-core line up. It requires more cooling than most of Intel’s other quad-core processors, which is why it’s only usually found in larger entertainment laptops like this model. Twinned with 8GB of RAM, however, it certainly shows what it’s capable of here. In the PCMark05 benchmark test it rocketed along to a score of 7,533, so there’s more than enough power on tap for serious
number-crunching tasks such as HD video editing and gaming.
In fact, it turns out gaming is one of the areas where this model really excels. The i7 processor obviously plays its part, but it’s the ATI Radeon 5850 HD dedicated graphics chip that gives this laptop its skill in the graphics department. This is a hefty machine that
weights in at 3.3kg, and it’s wide too, measuring 382mm from side to side. Suffice to say, if you’re constantly on the move it’s not going to appeal something that’s reinforced by its so-so battery life. In the Battery Eater test it managed to keep chugging along for 1 hour 26
minutes, which isn’t bad for a 15-incher, but not great compared to thin and light alternatives.
Acer Aspire specs are Intel Core i7 – 740QM 1.73GHz, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650, and supported 4 GB of DDR3 memory. Graphics driver version we use is the ATI Catalyst 8.713.3 and operating system Windows 7 (64-bit).

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty
This is the most popular real-time Strategy game that gamers enthusiasm has been waited. On default settings with 1280 × 720 resolutions, Texture Medium, medium Quality Graphics, Shaders Medium, and Medium Shadows. The results were very good and you still enjoy this game with a nice view. The fighting involves a lot of units can be run with a frame rate of about 80 to 30 fps.
Then, we improve the quality of texture and graphics to High and the resolution to 1360 × 768. The results also can still be tolerated and can be played with either. Battle of mass produces about 22 fps frame rate. However, when the battle involves more than 200 units on one
screen, the frame rate dropped dramatically to below 10 fps and difficult to play well. Our suggestion, drop down to medium or low to do battle with a very large number of units.
The latest open world game with the theme of organized crime in the United States in the 40s is more processing power needed to run games smoothly. At first, we tried this game using the default settings at 1280 × 720 resolution, AA level off, Anisotropic Filtering 1x, Shadow
Low, Ambient Occlusion off, Geometry Detail Off, and the APEX PhysX off. The result, games can run very well and still looks fairly good.
Game runs at a frame rate of 50 to 45 fps. We increased this game settings to medium and find the game still runs fine. Frame rate setting that we found in the medium ranged from 40 to 30 fps. Then, we tried setting the high and get a game that is still running well. In this setting, we get the frame rate between 35 to 28 fps.
Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days
On this game we use 366 × 768 resolution, high resolution textures, levels of AA at 0, Disable Anisotropic Filtering, Shadow Detail High, Ambient Occlusion On, and High Level of Detail. The result, this game runs fine and there is no significant reduction in frame rate when the number of heavy fighting in the area of blast effects. The frame rate ranges at 30 to 50 fps. You can raise Anisotropic filtering without degrading the performance too much.
Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
There is not much reduction in graphics quality and performance when compared to its console version. To run this game, we tried to use a resolution of 1366 × 768, level AA turned off, High quality graphics, High Resolution Texture On, and Vsync Off. The result is very good,
all the movements are quick and agile prince can be run without any loss in performance and frame rate is also maintained at high levels.
This game runs on a range of frame rates of 60 to 35 fps.
Battlefield Bad Company 2
When tried to use the high setting with 1366 × 768 resolutions, apparently the results comes out very disappointing with the game almost unplayable (frame rate 10 fps). Then, we lowered it to the medium setting and performance increased significantly at about 30 to 40 fps frame rate. After that, we tried to play the advance settings and lower the AA to 1x. The result comes out very good, we were able to play all settings on High with a range of frame rates of 25 to 40 fps.
This highly capable notebook can run all the games that we try with both. Games run smoothly and almost no performance decrease drastically. Level the frame rate is also relatively stable. All conditions that can occur when the temperature of the processor this notebook is maintained relatively low. Unfortunately, at room temperature is not very cold, it’s almost impossible to be achieved.
Temperature heat processor when the notebook is playing the game can reach about 65 to 75 degrees centigrade! The more severe, notebook processors are located just below the WASD keys, which incidentally is the magic button when playing almost any game action! When hot, this notebook’s performance declined quite dramatically in the games that require the performance of processors, such as the Mafia II and all the themed open-world games.
