Someone I know just got one as a gift, and wants to know if there are any decent games he can play.

Intel has a list in their site, but I don't trust them, haha.

I was researching this before I went with my current laptop, and most of the info I came across was that gaming options were very limited with this graphics card.

Yeah, that's what I thought. But look at this supposed list of supported games from Intel's site (super long warning):

Kinda weird that New Vegas would work, but Fallout 3 won't.

I'm sure he could play Bastion, at least.

I think any computer that can run Google Chrome can run Bastion.

Well, my Macbook has integrated intel hd graphics for day to day processes as it takes less power but also a nvidia card for more intensive tasks.

I just got an elitebook running intel hd 3000 off of 8 gigs of ram. So far, I'm really impressed. I don't think this is much of a benchmark, but running Serious Sam 3 on high without a hitch.

Aku says:
I imagine you could jack up the laptop with like 8 gigs of RAM and it'll play alright. Integrated graphics will borrow from that, right?

I'd be concerned about your system becoming a fireball, though.

Probably anything from like 2005 or earlier should run? And some stuff after that. It'll actually run Half Life 2 circa 2004.

It's definitely Intel's best stab at a GPU...which off course is saying nothing.

It pisses me off though as Intel's wasting 200 million transistors on the video and hardwired transcoding hardware on their CPUs...if you look at a picture of the chip, the space wasted on their garbage video could go towards a 5th core, or more cache, etc. Ivy bridge would be worse yet in that regard.

(I should say I've messed around with it because I was sucked in by the reality distortion field and bought a Macbook Air last year. Why? Ugh...reality distortion field. If I was going to buy a Mac, I should have at least gotten a Macbook Pro with an actual GPU and 4x CPU. My midrange notebook from 2008 stomps on it, and cost 1/2 the price *IN 2008* LOL)
