Anyone try running UT2004 on an Intel GMA x4500 integrated graphics? I'm thinking about getting a Lenovo x200 but it's only available with an x4500 (1280*800 screen).

The only game that I'd probably want to run on it would be UT2004; so I wanted to know if performance was acceptable with medium or higher quality settings. Unfortunately, I can't find any reviews that use UT2004 as a benchmark for this 'card'.

I can install the game on my X200 tonight if you would like. I'll post the result later in the evening.

It should be plenty for UT2K4. I remember that it played fairly well on an old Compaq with ATI x200 graphics and the X4500 is faster than that.

It will probably be playable at medium settings and your native LCD resolution.

The X4500 is 30-50% faster than the GMA X3100 and I can play UT2004 at 1024x768 on my laptop.

Just tried the demo on the highest settings it would allow me (I think character and world detail were set to normal while the rest high) and it ran very well at 1280x800. Was a bot match with 10 people on an onslaught map.

Were frame rates reasonably smooth and consistent? I've read somewhere that the x3100 had some issues with inconsistent frame rates (probably due to drivers).
