Not everyone can boast the best gaming rig available on the market, equipped with a dedicated GPU.

Best Games for Intel HD Graphics - LIST

Intel HD 4000 vs. Intel HD 3000 - what's the difference?

Before we move to games available for Intel HD Graphics 4000 & 3000, let's take a closer look at these two representatives of the HD family. While at first glance they might seem similar, their performance capabilities differ significantly.

The 4000 model, codenamed Ivy Bridge, compares well to dedicated GPUs, like GeForce and AMD. The HD family GPU offers clocks at 350 MHz and 1350 in Boost mode, offering the fast performance necessary to play more recent video games. Another feature of Intel HD 4000 is the support of DirectX 11, a significant improvement over the 3000 model we will discuss later in the text. Last but not least, Ivy Bridge offers a new feature of up to three independent displays. This option should satisfy gamers who want to immerse themselves in the play or streamers who need to keep a look at what's going on in their chat, for example.

Intel HD Graphics 3000, or Sandy Bridge, delivers performance on par with various dedicated GPUs, including older versions of Nvidia and AMD. Like Ivy Bridge, Intel HD Graphics 3000 clocks at the frequency of 350 MHz (1350 in Boost). Sandy Bridge supports DirectX 10, providing only a slightly decreased visual experience than Ivy Bridge. A neat feature is the video decoding and encoding option. Thanks to Sandy Bridge's features, the user can enjoy a decent performance with plenty of games, albeit on minimum system requirements.

Thanks to their manufacturing, both Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge are excellent choices for those who require lower power consumption, for example, when using the laptop with the power cable unplugged.
