Blows Integrated Graphics Away
on February 11, 2013
I recently built a computer with an i7 processor with HD4000 integrated graphics. Let me start by saying integrated graphics has come a long way. HD4000 will play most current games on medium settings with decent frame rates in most spots. I am currently playing Skyrim on Steam. Initially, the game scanned my system and automatically set the game to low settings. I was disappionted so I changed the settings to medium. Any higher than medium resulted in low frame rates. When I installed the GTX 660Ti, the game scanned my system and automatically set the game at ultra max setting. What is impressive about the GTX 660Ti is the buttery smooth frame rate on ultra max setting even when a lot of characters are on the screen. I don't think Skyrim can really tax this graphics card, so if your goal is to play Skyrim buy it now.
I have not tweaked any of the card settings, and I would not consider myself knowledgable enough to do so safely at this time. I will have to research some before making any changes. However, it seems I will not need to for a couple of years anyway. I am very pleased with the performance of this graphics card and would definitely recommend to anyone interested in PC gaming.
