et2002 aoe

OK, I’m not really a hardcore gamer. The newest game I’ve got on my shelf is Age of Mythology, a real-time strategy game from 2002. So that’s the game I used to test gaming and graphics performance on the Acer Aspire 1410 and Asus Eee Eee PC 1101HA laptops recently. And I pulled it out again yesterday to try it with the Asus Eee Top ET2002.

The ET2002 is an all-in-one desktop PC with a 20 inch, 1600 x 900 pixel display. It has a dual core Atom 330 processor. But what really sets it apart from most of the systems I’ve used is that it has NVIDIA ION graphics. So while most Atom processors struggle with video games at high resolutions, the ET2002 does a respectable job of tackling Age of Mythology. Of course, the game is a few years old and doesn’t feature a 1600 x 900 pixel mode, so it adjusts the screen resolution to 1024 x 768. But playback is nice and smooth in full screen mode, which is more than I can say for gameplay on the Asus Eee PC 1101HA.

You can check out a video of the Eee Top ET2002 playing Age of Mythology after the break. And just so you can find everything in one place, I’ve embedded the videos of the Acer Aspire 1410 and Asus Eee PC 1101HA playing the same game as well.

  1. To play AoM in widescreen mode, right-click the game shortcut and enter ” -xres=1600 -yres=900″ (without quotes) after the text in the ‘target’ box. It still stretches the interface, but the rest of the game is will run at the given resolution.

    1. It plays just fine. I, on the other hand, stink at first person shooters and
      I could barely get through the first few steps in the tutorial. But gameplay
      appears to be very smooth. 🙂
