  3. Quite impressed with Intel HD 4000

Having purchased a new Lenovo Yoga to replace my last archaic laptop, I thought I would finally join the Steam bandwagon... at least to play some of those very old titles that an ultrabook could theoretically run.

I naturally tried some more graphics-heavy titles, including Deux Ex: Human Revolution, Trine 2, Aliens: Colonial Marines, and a number of others, able to play on high settings, albeit with lesser or no anti-aliasing on some (not a big deal for me anyway).

Anyone else sporting an HD 4000 have any other title recommendations that surprised you at their ability to run well?

I play some games on my MS Surface Pro with an Intel HD 4000, unfortunately space is limited so I haven't installed very many games, but a great deal of games work great.

Elven Legacy runs really well on Intel HD 4000

I was able to play World of Warcraft on High at about 25 FPS (turned off shadows and stuff like light shafts).

Diablo 3 was more of a medium-low settings.

Still, not too bad for integrated. Makes me wonder how HD 4600/5000 fare

Do you have minecraft? People ask how it runs on that gpu on that board all the time and someone ends up recommending a laptop with an APU that magically somehow runs the game better than my 3570k/670 when I know that's not possible because my 2.9ghz phenom II x4 bottlenecks that game at 40 fps and I don't see how they're getting 100-200 fps on a 1.8ghz APU with everything maxed.

I have an optimus laptop so I can choose to run HD 4000. I've noticed the HD 4000 runs the console ports really well on decent settings. Grid 2 looks quite good and gets 30-45fps on med-high. Tera runs well, Devil may Cry, and Bioshock infinite runs well on med.

Does it play Dark Souls? I'm interested in getting a new macbook air and just wiping it clean of osx and installing windows 8 on it. That or I'll get a decent windows alternative. I would like to know if the intel hd 5000 can play DS at 720p on that chipset.
Still has a glimmer of hope for Shenmue III

why, it runs everything I throw at it smooth.

Anyways games that work smoothly on the latest drivers from Intel for HD4000:

Batman Arkham Asylum
Batman Arkham City
Skyrim(medium-high) looks and runs better than console versions
COD4-Black Ops2
Crysis medium settings
Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition
Far Cry 3
Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon
DmC Devil May Cry
Sonic Generations
Jet Set Radio HD
Dead Island
Gears of War
TF2
Pretty much any F2P mmofps/mmorpgs
NBA2k13
Sleeping Dogs
Just Cause 2
Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed
Minecraft of course
and much more.

Basically a crap load of modern games except a few.
Also remember almost any modern game with low to medium settings basically looks better than the console versions except a few.

If you haven't updated your intel hd 4000 drivers then make sure you head to intel page right away as they give a dramatic improvement

After you apply DSfix, it's great.

They're not getting 100-200 FPS.

I have an A6 3400m with a 6520g....6520g being slightly below the HD 4000, or close to equal. I get like 30-40 FPS on "fast" graphics.
