Intel HD graphics 4000 Overclock

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Before i start i'm hoping to avoid all the "garbage", "just buy a discrete graphics card" or anything along those lines.

For what i'm doing right now, the integrated graphics are more then enough until i see the next step of new cards in the comming weeks / months.

Keep in mind i'm a beginner and somewhat ignorant when it comes to these things so the more info the better.

I've read a few topics about this, tho most apply to the HD 3000 series... from what i've found so far for specs are:

Core Speed: 350 - 1350 Mhz
Shader Speed: 350 - 1350 Mhz
Shared Memory
Pipelines: 16 unified

I'm sure there are other specs, but i haven't be able to find them. If you know of any others please share them if possible tongue.gif

From what i understand you can overclock the graphics. Has anyone tried and if so what kind of numbers would we be talking about?

The next two may seem foolish but:

1) Shared memory: I'm guessing it shares with your motherboard RAM?
a) Assume i have 8GB of RAM, my graphics would then have a total of...? 8GB?
b) Would more RAM be beneficial to the integrated graphics?
c) Would overclocking the RAM from... 1600 to 2XXX be beneficial to the integrated graphics?

2) Pipelines: 16 unified: What in the foggy Thursday morning does that mean?


Any help in actual base statistics of the Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics and/or any advice on overclocking them would be most helpful.


Regards,


Zebb

Correct.

Most integrated chips can't use more then 512MB to 1GB.

Nope, unless the programs you use are going to use eat up all 7+GB, you're fine.

Yes. Your CPU and GPU are sharing a memory bus and at low speeds it will limit both. As with Llano, the faster the better. Crank it up.

Not a damn clue.
