Fifa 11

Editorial Team (translated by Vinay Pradhan), 11/02/2011

The football games series, Fifa, has been popular with gamers for many years now. Thanks to the low hardware requirements, even low-end laptop owners can enjoy high detail levels.

How We Test

We used an Exhibition match (friendly game) from the free demo version of Fifa 11 for our benchmark. Our recording tool, Fraps, captured a few minutes of gameplay from the standard camera perspective as the frame rates dropped drastically when the camera shot up close (Playbacks, etc.). During the match, the ball was aimlessly kicked around and below you will see a few screenshots with their respective settings.

Analysis of the Benchmarks

Thanks to the low hardware requirements, Fifa 11 can be run well even on older and cheaper notebooks. In fact, even the integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 chip of the Sandy Bridge processor can run the game at high details and 1366x768 pixels. Gamers who want to run Fifa 11 fluidly with AA (Anti-Aliasing) and a Full HD resolution (1920x1080 pixels) will need a low-end graphic card such as the Nvidia GeForce GT 520M or Radeon HD 6490M.

The hardware requirements of this game are very similar to its successor, Fifa 12, which we tested here.

An overview of the games we have tested can be found here.

Legend
5Stutters – This game is very likely to stutter and have poor frame rates. Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, average frame rates are expected to fall below 25fps
May Stutter – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, stutters and poor frame rates are expected.
30Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 25fps
40Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 35fps
60Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 58fps
May Run Fluently – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, fluent frame rates are expected.
?Uncertain – This graphics card experienced unexpected performance issues during testing for this game. A slower card may be able to achieve better and more consistent frame rates than this particular GPU running the same benchmark scene.
Uncertain – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game and no reliable interpolation can be made based on the performances of surrounding cards of the same class or family.
The value in the fields displays the average frame rate of all values in the database. Move your cursor over the value to see individual results.
