[FPS Benchmarks] Apex Legends on NVIDIA GeForce MX450 (GDDR6/25W) and MX350 (25W) – MX450 is over two times faster

Apex Legends is one of the well-known battle royale titles. The goal is simple – one huge map full of weapons and ammo, and of course, you have to survive. The picture quality of the game is good and the title is based on the Source engine. It’s not the newest engine out there but for sure the game looks good.

Compared to some other Source-based games like CS:GO, Team Fortress 2, or Left 4 Dead 2, Apex Legends is definitely heavier when it comes to system requirements. Especially if you want to see a lot of FPS while playing – that’s an online shooter so the higher the FPS the better.

For this article, we’ll show you two decent inexpensive dGPUs – the NVIDIA GeForce MX450 (GDDR6/25W) and MX350 (25W).

Don’t forget to take a look at our Top 100 Best Laptops for Apex Legends list.
