intel(R)82945G, can I run sl?

Question

  • 0

Those older Intel integrated chipsets are not designed for intense CPU/GPU applications such as Second Life and will struggle to even run it at Basic level. The chipset is mentioned as being acceptable in the System Requirements page  http://secondlife.com/support/system-requirements/ but the only way to really know for sure with your system is to try it. If you haven't already, a driver update could help using Intel's driver detect utility at http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect?redire​ctor_count=1&

You may be better off trying the older 1.23.5 viewer or Phoenix available here http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Old_versions and here http://www.phoenixviewer.com/ than the newer viewer 2.

With on-board graphics only, you may get the older viewers to work, but it will be a laggy and frustrating experience.  Even a very cheap GPU would make worlds of difference, and I suggest you look into that if you really want to use SL.  Nvidia cards seem to have less problems as SL is built on Nvidia.  Best of luck to you.
