Intel i5 3570K HD Graphics 4000 Question?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know what the HD graphics 4000 that comes with the i5 3570K compare to? I don't have the money to buy my processor and GPU at the same time but i was thinking i could buy my cpu now and use the HD Graphics 4000 til i get a GPU for christmas. Would it be better than a 4850 1GB? I don't do any hardcore gaming like BF3 or anything. Possibly The Sims 3 or DayZ. Would i be ok til christmas time?

I believe it's slightly underpowered for DayZ, but it can run sims fine.

I did the same thing as you, I could run Bioshock 2 at medium settings and 1600x900 resolution.

I don't think it would be better than a 4850. It depends on the game though, the dedicated vram is a huge help for most games.

According to Tom's, even the 4650 beats HD 4000. Also, it says it beats mobility hd 6400 series. I have a 6470M in my laptop, and I'd say it's slightly better than the HD 4000. Not a huge difference though.

It's faster than a GT520 and 5450. It's around the same as a GT440. It's slower than a 6550, 5570, and the 4850 you mentioned.. Don't expect to play any game well, especially DayZ.

Hope that helps.

I cant really comment much on this, as i'm using linux right now, but for all the opengl games i have(which is a somewhat limited library) it works great. HD 4000 is a massive improvement from the Phenom II 1090t with a 880g motherboard i used to have. Of course, it wont be up to par with modern discrete GPUs. But it doesnt cost so much either. The integrated gpu should let you play most games now(with reduced settings). but passmark says it has about a third of the power of the 4850.

I'd say wait it out a few months! The HD4000 is vastly superior to the HD3000, you can run games by lowering resolution and/or detail settings. Should last you fine until then thumb.gif

By then... I'd say wait for 8xxx series since a card might be out by then, otherwise get a 78xx or a 79xx. Right now 7850's are $180 and 7950's can be found for sub-$300. Much better than the same price bracket with 6xx series.

Everything will be cheaper in a few months as well. I'm holding out for Q1 2013 for 8xxx series redface.gif
