How well can the ION run games
Based on current gaming requirements the ION is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 10.

This low performing GPU is unable to play any of the most demanding games available today.

How many years will the ION graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the ION in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this ION graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

In fact, it is an integrated graphics solution itself. But this was a lot better than the Intel GMAs it competed with.

Part 2

Now with the rest of the post. I set everything on low. and turned shadows off. vsync off. and grass and tree detail to 10%. put the res at 800x600. Now the game is playable as of right now, BUT at around 20fps. For most people this is garbage. I get that but at the same time it really wasnt to bad of an experience. It did dip into some really bad single digits. As of right now it has reached 25-26 max. Now this is on a htpc and it has okay cooling as of right now. Also something to think about is the OC i have going on. Im going to mess with this a lot more. More OCing and more fans. I want to see if i can get it to reach 30fps and a min of no less than 20. This might be a tall order but i want to give the lowend gamers out there some hope for an awesome game.

Why is the ION given 1 star? It is actually quite good.
