    Ran TGC for the first time last night thanks to aeroburner, looked amazing and ran effortlessly. Was worried because I had an older graphics card, but it looks phenomenal. Needs a few tweaks, but overall I'm impressed with how smooth it ran.

      What fps and settings are you using/getting?

      Adding basic objective info like that helps make the thread useful to others. Especially when someone is exploring the boundaries of the minimum requirements that can be made to run half decent.

      So I ordered the Cybertron PC but when it arrived the video card was flopping around inside the tower. So I took it back to Best Buy and after a long conversation with Geek Squad and an inconvenience discount and came home with this computer and it is working great.

      Anybody on the forum have experience (or knowledge) if GeForce NOW ( can be used to run TGC, JNPG and even latest TruGolf E6 demo using any laptop or computer (including Macs)? Or ProTee United might know the answer regarding use on TGC? Thanks.

        Hi folks my laptop is MSI I7 processor SSD with graphics card GEFORCE GTX1060 running TGC which is impressive graphics ,not cheap but I have this only for my golf simulator
        I would recommended this laptop to anyone

          Would it run on Surface Pro 4 with Iris 540 graphics card? It's obviously better than an integrated HD card (some games are actually playable so to say) but I am still wondering if I would need GTX cards.

          I mean I have a desktop too (GTX680 which I think should be plenty for 1080p) but I wanted to run on my laptop too should I need to take it outside (i.e. indoor ranges, backyard etc.)

            We have it running on a Surface Pro 4. You will need to tweak the quality/performance a bit. Iris cards are no high performance gaming cards.

            That's good to hear. I am thinking of upgrading mine to the new 2017 Surface Pro with Iris Pro. I heard it's like twice as better than SP4's Iris, almost equivalent to Surface Book's 940M 2015 dedicated GPU model.

          I've read throughout these threads and am close to pulling the trigger on TGC + new laptop. Does a 1060 3 GB suffice or is a 6 gb strongly recommended? I don't know much about computers, eyeing up this one. Thanks in advance for your help.


          • #38
            I’d get the 6GB. I can attest to it being great for TGC

                The graphics card is not good enough. Look for a GTX1060/6GB card or better. It will run on the GTX950M but not in high resolution.

              I don't have the budget for a laptop with a GTX1060 GC. Is it possible somewhere down the line to have it upgraded? I'm not techy myself so would probably take to someone to do.

              I take it the rest of the spec could handle this GC?

                Laptops can not be upgraded. The GTX950M card with run TGC, but at a very low resolution. Not really recommended.

                OK thanks. Might be something I just need to put up with until I can afford to get a more expensive laptop

              Hi all, new here and looking for some advice.

              I currently own an Optishot2 (purchased about 18 months ago) but I've never been happy with it as it just doesn't reflect my own swing patterns out on the real course at all, no matter hwat adjustments I make and I'm not really prepared to put any more effort into it.

              However, I've been looking closely at the R-Motion and I like what I see. Ideally, I would like a Skytrak but that's beyond my budget at present and I really want something I can practice in the garage with over the winter months that is fairly close to accurate with the data it provides and R-Motion seems a good fit, particularly as I think The Gold Club is a pretty neat game.

              Now, I have a PC with an i5-2500k processor, 8GB RAM and a Geforce GTX 960 GPU which is more than adequate to run the sim version of The Golf Club. I would rather avoid lugging it backwards and forwards from my office to the garage though so I would like to use my laptop for the R-Motion/Golf Club.

              Now here's where I need some advice. Laptop specs are below:
              - Intel® Core™i7 Quad Core Mobile Processor i7-4700MQ (2.40GHz)
              - 8GB SAMSUNG 1333MHz SODIMM DDR3 MEMORY
              - NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 760M - 2.0GB DDR5 Video RAM - DirectX® 11

              So, by my reckoning, that GPU is either close to minimum or quite possibly below spec. It runs the Steam version of The Golf Club 1 absolutely no problem at all and at good frame rates but I'm really not sure how it'll fare with the version bundled with R-Motion. Like I said, I could use my main PC if needed so I could just try the laptop and see what happens, it's not as if the product would be wasted but it makes me hesitate to buy right now.

              Any thoughts or experience with a setup like that folks?

              Great forum btw, thanks for having me!

                thegreatradish welcome to the forum!

                The GTX760M is a lot slower then the minimum recommended card (GTX670). Comparison here:

                You can of course give it a try and see how it works. For the "better" experience you might have to buy a trolly to move your "better" PC to and from the garage

                  Yeah, pretty stark numbers there. I think it [might] run it but not to a decent level and would probably burn the damn thing out very quickly in any case. I'll have to go away and do some thinking. Such a pity my office ceilings are so low otherwise I could keep it all in the same room and just get my main PC to do the donkey work (btw, the 4GB GTX 960 might seem a bit meh but it handles everything I can throw at it with ease including TGC2 @ 1920x1080 >50 FPS consistently at high settings so I know I can rely on it).

                  The garage is only 15-20 yards away, but I'm so lazy

                  Thanks for your advice.
