Hi, I have an IdeaPad Y710 - Intel Core2Duo T8100 (Centrino NOT Centrino2), 2.1 GHz, 512 MB ATI Radeon HD2600 Graphics card, 2 GB DDR2 RAM, 17" 1920 × 1200 display.
When I try playing a 1080p resolution movie, it does not run smoothly and misses frames, especially when there is scene with many details (like a top-view shot, or a big setup). I tried changing the processor speed to TURBO as well, but it does not work. 720p movie runs nicely. I use VLC player to play the files.
Is it because I have low (2 GB DDR2) RAM? or is it may be due to Centrino and not Centrino2? or any other reason?
