    Default Can I run RIFT?

    Wondering if my MacBook Pro will run RIFT. Just bought it a month ago. Going to install Windows 7 through Bootcamp. This is what its got.

    2.4GHz Intel Core i5 processor
    4GB of 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM
    320GB 5400 rpm hard drive
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M graphics processor with 256 MB of GDDR3 memory


    Someone let me know please. Especially if you're running the same thing, tell me how the game looks.

    You'll probably have to run the low quality renderer, or at least pretty low graphics settings to get any kind of decent frame rate, but I think you should at least be able to get it going on that rig.
    accept everything, believe nothing

    IIRC the 330M is an OEM version of the 230 which is a slightly tweaked 9600(GSO?) which is a "tweaked" (ie rebadged) 8800GS which is based upon the G80 launched in 2006.. ie look for 8800GS benchmarks against other cards..

    Mem: 32GB GSkill 1.5V 9-9-9

    rejoice!
    I have played Rift on my Mac Book Pro which has a slightly slower CPU, and a lesser graphics card. I did have to scale graphics down a lot (not all the way down) but it was totally playable!

    Just a word of warning, That site said I couldn't play GTA4, Bioshock 2, and many other games which my laptop runs perfectly <3
    Says I can play Rift ''Super Fast'' though so I'm in a good mood with the site
