HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC + playing Steam games

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

I started using my HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC again a few months ago. I bought The Witcher 3 through Steam and I’m having some lagging issues. I want to be able to play the game on my PC without seeing Geralt move as slow as a snail. I also don’t want to set my game’s graphics too low. Should I adjust the graphics + post processing in the game or just adjust the settings on my notebook pc?

 

Here are my specs:

 

HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC

 

Graphic card (GPU): AMD Radeon

HD 8400 / R3 Series

Processor: AMD A6-5200 APU with Radeon(TM) HD Graphics  2.00 GHz

RAM: 8.00 GB

System: 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor

Edition: Windows 10 Home

Resolution: 1366 x 768

The specs of your machine is

             https://support.hp.com/hk-en/document/c04027679

 

Definitely it is not a games machine and not suitable for online game. Its iGPU is weak, its CPU and its HDD are slow. Your network/internet may be ok but your machine is not.

 

I would only play LOWER end games offline using this machine

 

Regards.
