Specifications of the our test system

Considering that a lot of people play games like these on their laptops, we decided to test the game on a mid-end gaming laptop. Here are the specifications:

  • CPU : Intel Core i5 9300H
  • GPU : GTX 1650 ti 4GB
  • RAM : 8GB DDR4 2666mhz
  • OS : Windows 10 Home Edition
  • SSD : 512 GB
  • Screen Resolution : 1920×1080
  • Driver : GeForce Game Ready Driver v452.06

In order to find out the best combination of graphics settings for a game, it is always recommended to run the game on a medium end gaming rig. And there is no point in running a game like CK III on gaming rigs with high or enthusiast level graphics cards.

Because lets be honest, we all know that it will run smoothly without any issues on a RTX 2070 Super or a RX 5700 XT.
