TS3 relies very heavily on the CPU and having a multi-core processor makes a huge difference in performance, but that does not mean just any graphics card out there will work. What it DOES mean, is that if you have a really strong dual or quad core CPU, you may be able to get better performance out of the <span style="background:#f6ecc3; color:black;">Maybe</span> cards. If you have an older single core CPU, even the <span style="background:#b0dca2; color:black;" font color="#ACDEA1">Yes</span> cards may not give perfect performance.

'''Please note:''' It is not recommended that you attempt to play TS2 or TS3 on an integrated video chipset. If you have a computer with integrated video, it is recommended you view [[Game Help:Onboard Graphics|this guide]].

'''Please note:''' It is not recommended that you attempt to play TS2 or TS3 on a motherboard video chipset. If you have a computer with integrated video, it is recommended you view [[Game Help:Onboard Graphics|this guide]]. Newer, on-die graphics (built into the CPU) are fine for running TS3. If you have a laptop, see [[Game Help:Laptop Gaming|this article]].

'''Poor performance even with a good graphics card?''' You may have to change the way TS3 detect graphics cards. See [[Game help:Getting new graphics cards recognized by the game|this guide]] for details.

Laptop versions of these chipsets may work, but may run comparatively slower. This is especially true for the Max-Q series Nvidia cards. However, Max-Q graphics cards are based on the high-end GTX 1060-1080 series cards and should run well. If you have a laptop with Optimus, it is recommended to set TS3 to run on the Nvidia graphics card.

[edit] Desktop Graphics Card Compatibility and Recommendations

This chart is for desktop graphics ONLY and does not take into account the rest of your computer. If you have an awesome graphics card but crappy everything else, your performance will suck. If you have a newer computer with a strong CPU and lots of RAM, but install a crappy graphics card, you will still likely have performance problems.

TS3 relies very heavily on the CPU and having a multi-core processor makes a huge difference in performance, but that does not mean just any graphics card out there will work. What it DOES mean, is that if you have a really strong dual or quad core CPU, you may be able to get better performance out of the Maybe cards. If you have an older single core CPU, even the Yes cards may not give perfect performance.

Please note: It is not recommended that you attempt to play TS2 or TS3 on a motherboard video chipset. If you have a computer with integrated video, it is recommended you view this guide. Newer, on-die graphics (built into the CPU) are fine for running TS3. If you have a laptop, see this article.

Poor performance even with a good graphics card? You may have to change the way TS3 detect graphics cards. See this guide for details.


KEY
Yes Known to give good game play, little or no lagging is expected
Maybe Performance is uncertain/unknown, or may still be mostly playable with expected lagging/reduced performance
No Not recommended/known problems/poor performance

**Regardless of the performance potential of these cards the Radeon 3850x2 is unsupported by TS3 and is known to have compatibility problems with TS2. Therefore the card is not recommended

! At least some if not all of Nvidia's cards with G86 and G84 cores are defective. They they do not handle heat like they should. This includes all GeForce 8400/8500/8600/8700 cards and their laptop variants.

^ Some of these cards are dual-GPU cards and are known to micro-stutter. Therefore performance on those cards are reduced. The same applies for graphics cards in SLI or CrossFire mode.

[edit] The Sims 3 System Requirements

A note on these requirements: The requirements listed below are taken directly from the official TS3 site. These are the absolute bare minimums you need to get the game up and running. These are NOT the minimum requirements for a playable game experience! If you have just the bare minimum and a low-end graphics card, you will NOT be able to play the game! It will run... but it will not look good, run well, or run consistently without crashing.

In order to find the specs on your system, see: Game Help:System Specs. If you are looking to upgrade your system, please see Help: Computer & Software Help for lots of advice, recommendations, and a place you can ask questions on specific hardware.

[edit] Sims 3 Base Game PC Requirements - No Patches

From: http://www.thesims3.com/game/systemreq (with some slight changes based on advanced graphics card knowledge)

Items marked in green are those which are also recommended by MTS for playing The Sims 3.

FOR WINDOWS XP

  • 2.0 GHz P4 processor or equivalent (2.0ghz Core 2 Duo, or AMD Athlon II, or higher is recommended; 2.4 Ghz for later patches (~1.19 onwards))
  • 1 GB RAM (2GB of RAM is recommended)
  • A 128 MB Video Card with support for Pixel Shader 2.0 (256 MB dedicated mid-range video card or higher is recommended)
  • The latest version of DirectX 9.0c
  • Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (Windows XP unsupported as of April 2014)
  • At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of additional space for custom content and saved games


FOR WINDOWS VISTA/WINDOWS 7/WINDOWS 8/WINDOWS 10

  • 2.4 GHz P4 processor or equivalent (2.4ghz Core 2 Duo, or AMD Phenom II, or higher is recommended for early patches; Core i5, or AMD FX, or higher is recommended for later patches (~1.27 onwards))
  • 1.5 GB RAM (at least 4GB of RAM is recommended)
  • 128 MB Video Card with support for Pixel Shader 2.0 (256 MB dedicated mid-range video card or higher is recommended; 1 GB dedicated mid-range video card or higher for 1080 resolution) A newer, better one (higher MIDDLE numbers = better. For example a Nvidia GTX 960 would be faster than the newer GT 1030. Newer does not necessarily equal better. Generally speaking, expect the previous series mid-range cards to perform similar to the current series low-end, and so forth.)
  • Microsoft Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (Windows Vista unsupported as of April 2017; Windows 7 ending support in January 2020)
  • At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of additional space for custom content and saved games


For computers using built-in graphics chipsets, the game requires at least:

  • Intel Integrated Chipset, GMA 3-Series or above (Intel Iris series or higher or AMD APU is recommended) Note: Performance will be reduced at FHD (1080) resolution even for the strongest APUs.
  • 2.6 GHz Pentium D CPU, or 1.8 GHz Core 2 Duo, or equivalent (5th gen Intel Core i-series or AMD A8 recommended)
  • 0.5 GB additional RAM


SUPPORTED VIDEO CARDS:

See table above.

For laptops, see here. Laptop versions of these chipsets may work, but may run comparatively slower. This is especially true for the Max-Q series Nvidia cards. However, Max-Q graphics cards are based on the high-end GTX 1060-1080 series cards and should run well. If you have a laptop with Optimus, it is recommended to set TS3 to run on the Nvidia graphics card.

Standalone cards that are installed in vanilla PCI slots (not PCIe or PCIx), such as some GeForce FX variants, will perform poorly. Most AGP, if not all, won't work at all

Regardless of the performance potential of these cards all NVIDIA Quadro and AMD Firepro workstation graphics cards are unsupported in TS4 and TS3 as they are not made for gaming.

Intel's legacy GMA (Non-HD) integrated chipsets featuring underclocked parts will not perform adequately. Intel's Celeron n-series, Pentium n-series and Intel Core M graphic processors are ultra low wattage that also feature underclocked graphics processors. Integrated chipsets such as the ATI Xpress and the NVIDIA TurboCache variants may default to settings that are higher than what would be optimal for them. Graphics settings can be lowered to improve performance.

Please note that attempting to play the game using video hardware that isn't listed above may result in reduced performance, graphical issues or cause the game to not run at all.

The NVIDIA GeForce FX series is unsupported under Vista.
