My laptop has an NVidia GeForce GTX 870M 6GB edition so by today's standards its nowhere near what you'd call a fast card but I can run Elite with most things set on high or Ultra settings and still have a framerate that exceeds 70fps... On the surface of planets though that drops to around 35fps
even then, the game is quite playable. The latest 10 series GFX cards are quite capable of running in Ultra without breaking a sweat.
That being said, event with my what is now lowly 870M, you can still get some awesome screenshots.
Over the last month or so I toddled off exploring the galaxy and took a less travelled path to the centre of the galaxy then swung around and headed to Colonia, the first major human inhabited part of the galaxy outside of "the bubble" of the main human inhabited area of the galaxy. One thing about Elite Dangerous that you cannot deny is that it looks beautiful.
I know a lot of people leave the game for months on end because of "the grind" but I still find pleasure in the really small things... Using a tobii eye/headtracker, one of my favourite things to do is simply fuel scoop the local star then turn my head to watch it out of the left or right window as I leave orbit. The sense of immersion in the game even with simple eye/head tracking is quite incredible.
