Team Fortress 2 - Notebook and Desktop Benchmarks

A 10-year old strategy shooter Despite its advanced age, TF2 remains to be one of the most popular games on Steam. This is probably due to the fair free-to-play model and the moderate system requirements. The fast-paced 3D shooter is nevertheless quite a challenge, especially for cheap entry-level laptops and Windows tablets. More often than not, it is the processor and not the graphics card that leads to a jerky reproduction and unplayable frame rates. We tested the performance on various laptops, tablets, and desktops in the following benchmark check.

Technology

For the original German review, see here.

Team Fortress 2 uses the relatively old Source engine. Although the game was launched on the market in 2007, Valve still provides patches and updates for the shooter. It still finds a place among the Top 10 in Steam's most played games in 2017.

Benchmark

We used the time demo benchmark on openbenchmarking.org that is also used in the Phoronix Test Suite. The demo file called pts4.dem in version 1.2 displays an appealing game scene and is rendered in time demo mode. 3 short multiplayer rounds also prove that the performance in time demo is relevant for practice. The average frame rates recorded with Fraps were always comparable with the benchmark outcomes in all three rounds (tested on the 940MX in 1920x1080 Ultra, i.e. approx. 45 FPS.

As to settings, we tested the absolute minimum of 1280x720 pixels up to 4K, maximum details and 8x SMAA. This is not a great challenge for modern gaming graphics cards due to the advanced age of TF2. The selected "high" shadows are no longer available on all test systems. We had to use "medium" on the integrated Intel GPUs (e.g. HD 530) and Radeon Pro 555.

Results

Players crave for high frame rates in fast-paced multiplayer 3D shooters. Thus, we recommend at least 50 FPS for Team Fortress 2. An entry-level graphics card in a laptop, such as the GeForce GTX 1050, is already enough for UHD/4K and maximum details.

Slower models can be selected for Full HD. The Radeon M280X or 940MX with a DDR3 video memory is the bottom limit here. It is pleasing that Team Fortress 2 can also be played smoothly on slower graphics cards. However, the processor should not be too weak in order to prevent stutters. The integrated Intel HD Graphics or the Radeon R7 integrated in Kaveri APUs was even enough for high details without antialiasing in the test. However, it was very close to the limits with Intel's passively cooled processors.

The Core Y series was still enough for a smooth gameplay in minimum settings. The GPUs integrated into the Apollo Lake and Cherry Trail/Braswell CPUs did not achieve playable frame rates. However, this could be due to the processors' slower cores. The actually weaker Intel HD Graphics 4000 in a still fast quad-core accomplished a smooth 48 FPS in minimum settings. The HD Graphics 4000 also defeated the actually much faster GeForce GT 640M/720M due to the slower dual-core processor.

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.
