On outdoor maps frame rates can fall into the 40s during heavy fighting, but there is no lag. Odd that you felt the need to drop down to 1024x768. I own an S560 with a single 512MB DIMM -I'm expecting my performance to go up when I get more than one DIMM in the box...
Very interesting. I've spent some time today playing UT2004 on the S560P I bought, and you seem to be getting better performance than I am. At High/Medium details @ 1024x768, framerate averages at 60-70 and drops to no more than 40 during my experimentations on outdoor maps. Is this with an overclock on the GPU possibly? I've considered trying. People with desktop 6200TC's have been able to get up to 500mhz, so 450mhz might be possible on this one.
I've got mine going with an extra 1GB stick, Kingston brand. Cpu-z reports dual channel mode is active, at PC4200 CAS4 speeds.
If TES:Oblivion will be able to run on the S560 like UT2004 will then it will be even better! I got an excellent deal on the machine. It just so happened that CompUSA had a $200 Instant rebate going on top of the Sony $100 one yesterday when I was in there to return a BFG 7800GT that had been artifacting out of the box. It felt kind of eerie to be walking out of the store with a high end sony after only paying $1330..
