a quick question about laptop graphics

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

im looking for a cheap laptop to play source games on like dota 2, garrys mod, and team fortress 2. I know mobile Intel integrated graphics 3000 can run these with 45+ fps but the question is can the integrated hd graphics that come with the first gen mobile core i5's run these? If anyone has any experience with this please share your findings, i would like to play dota 2 at 720p at max settings with at least 45 fps (the occasional dip is ok).

I don't know - I can run games like that at 720p decently (haven't checked fps) but I have Intel Integrated Graphics 4000 and a 3rd gen i5 in my laptop.

My pc :)

I would doubt it there was a big jump in performance between intell HD 2000 and 3000 and it happened again between 3000 and 4000. I would expect about 1/2 too 3/4 the performance on a HD 2000 part compaired to a HD 3000 part. it looks much worse for the original Intel HD mobile parts.

1st gen Intel integrated graphics SUCK. You won't be able to play Dota anywhere close to that well.

1st gen integrated graphics might as well be nonexistent.
