So I'm buying a laptop this summer and I've been looking around. I found this one laptop that's right for me, but the one thing that's concerning me is the Intel HD Graphics. I know in the past, Intel had garbage graphic card. But I want to know if it's right for me.

I'm not a gamer or anything, but sometimes I'll play some light games (Counter Strike and maybe TF2 in the future). I may do some very little photoshop, but other than that, I don't really care. I read that it can do HD videos (720p), but I want your opinions if it is an ok graphics card.

i have played on css,Fallout new,bulletstorm vegas and TF2 it runs smooth on all of them! i got intel® HD Graphic to. It's jut that in bulletstorm and fallout new vegas it can sometimes lag in open areas in other case it runs smooth! so if you buy intel i think that you will have fun playing thoose games and maby more i really do! ;D

My new Dell Inspiron 15R has an Intel HD Graphics chip. I think it's one of the new ones that are built into the processors themselves. I can play Portal 2 very well on it, with a few other games on Med-High settings (don't have a lot of games installed yet).

intel hd graphics nowadays makes a big difference...it can compete with nvidia and ati fairly enough...i can play dao2 and the witcher 2 without problems with medium settings...so for those who are anti-intel go check for yourself and maybe you will ask yourself why in hell you spend your hard earned money on just a very little difference in quality if you can have it cheap?

I just had to post here when I saw how blind people are. I have Intel HD Graphics 3000 on my laptop and I can play The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, Dragon Age 1/2, Mass Effect 1/2 and I'm sure many other games without ANY problems. All settings are either maxed out or ALMOST maxed out. Recently I got The Sims 3 and three expansion packs for it. I run it on the highest possible settings and it doesn't lag at all.

Let alone all those older games like AOE. Or online games like LoL. Go figure.

I bought a laptop a while back that has an Intel HD Integrated Graphics card... My laptop can run 1080p videos, it plays TF2 just fine, I play WoW fine, hell I even installed Portal and ran it fine. The system specs for Skyrim are out now, and as far as I can see, I would have no issue running it either. (all it says for Skyrim is "Direct X 9 compliant video card with 512 MB of RAM"

As a side note its a Toshiba Satellite C655. And all the above mentioned games run on "Fair, Good, or medium" graphics with about 20-30 frames. Aside from Skyrim which isn't out obviously.

The only games that havn't been able to run are like first person shooters and such.

I just bought the ASUS U46E RAL5 laptop and was wondering if I should buy Skyrim to play on it or on the 360?

It's specs are very impressive all around except for the graphics card.
8GB Ram
750GB Hard Drive
Core i5 Processor @ 2.3ghz
Intel HD Graphics Card

One of my friends told me that I should probably get it on the 360 because of the integrated graphics card. Thing is, my last laptop that had 3GBs of RAM and a significantly slower processor ran games like WoW full screen fine with no lag. With Intel's new graphics cards does it really make that much of a difference to not have a discrete card if you have a good processor and a lot of RAM?

Yeah your other specs other then the IGP is fine to run Skyrim, but because of the IGP you probably wont even be able to launch into the menu... Intel HD Graphics is just not for gaming.


Sorry.

i run tf2 and portal 1 and 2 on medium settings just fine, no problems at all. However, anything above that will probably run slow.

At 150-300 FPS? IMPOSSIBLE.

Even my stepbrother with i7 - 16 Gig ram - XFX 7950 (3 GB, PCI-E 3) can't run over 150 FPS..

Lol this thread always keeps getting revived by someone.

Anyways, the newer Intel graphic cards are actually much better than 3-4 years ago and some small gaming CAN be done on them. I don't think AutoCad is even that cpu intensive as it's only 2D, not 3D. And apparently the Intel HD Graphics 4000 is going to be much, much better than the 3000, not just slightly better.

But in all, if you want to game, get a dedicated graphics card.

Intel® Core™ i3 processor 2350M (2.3GHz - 3MB L3 cache)

If anyone still reads this i'd be really happy if they can tell me if this notebook is any good.

Is the graphics card good for watching 1080p films? I don't play any PC games.
