I have a 64MB GeForce FX Go5200 in this laptop which runs Doom 3 demo
nicely at 1024x768 fullscreen, with the nVidia binary drivers. Anti-
aliasing in Doom3 is turned off though, and video quality is set to
"medium". Even at that though, it is very playable.
And before the "open-source-drivers-only" brigade get started, it's a
laptop supplied by my employer so I have no control over which graphics
chipset I get to use.
