Overclocked HD 4000 and BF3 Impressions

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Was reading the trinity benchmark thread and the HD 4000 gets trashed everywhere so i figured i'd try it and see how bad it really was. Overclocked it to 1.5Ghz and fired up BF3. Lowered resolution to 1024X768.

Low details

2012-10-19 15:02:02 - bf3
Frames: 13671 - Time: 271629ms - Avg: 50.330 - Min: 31 - Max: 97

Same resolution but medium details

2012-10-19 15:09:59 - bf3
Frames: 24184 - Time: 500000ms - Avg: 48.368 - Min: 27 - Max: 105

High

2012-10-19 15:31:34 - bf3
Frames: 13053 - Time: 412888ms - Avg: 31.614 - Min: 19 - Max: 48

Custom Ultra with a few things disabled

2012-10-19 15:44:58 - bf3
Frames: 15687 - Time: 456661ms - Avg: 34.352 - Min: 12 - Max: 86

I'm actually surprised i averaged that much. gameplay was smooth, no hiccups, was actually playable even tho it made me miss 1920X1080 and ultra.

The HD3000/4000 IGP's are decent, they just arent as good as the discrete solutions available today. They are miles ahead of anything Intel has previously released in their older platforms.


I am quite suprised at the results you achieved, im sure overclocking heavily effected them however. I am curious though, how does your system perform in a 64 player server in multiplayer? I doubt it will be able to do as well, but I am curious none the less.

I recommend that you get a discrete GPU. You shouldn't put all that strain on your CPU and iGPU.

So basicly its perfect for an iPad mini?wait!iisnt this gona be in the high end surface.amd might suck as a CPU company (since they started Doing thing its way instead of listening to IBM (IBM gave them great tip)good thing ATI is there,but that is also gone ,they began cutting at ATI also .hopefully it isn't so.amd can close their CPU but I need their gpu

I wonder if we can get someone with an A10 5800k to do a comparison bench for us. Obviously if the setup is correct, ie fast ram, the APU will win out. I am just curious by how much the A10 would trump the HD4k.

The thread title clearly states "Overclocked HD4000 and BF3 impressions" , your suggestion and comment are not relevant to the thread topic. Had the OP been concerned with a comparison between a discrete solution vs. the HD4000, your comment would be relevant, however the fact still remains that this thread concerns the Ivy Bridge IGP.

@OP

Have you tried running your HD4000 in multiplayer yet? I am still curious to see the results you achieve. Most benchmarks on the internet are a loop of single player gameplay, as it is repeatable and gives repeatable results. I have noticed with other games, for instance BFBC2, single player is not as taxing as multiplayer gameplay.

I tried editing the title to BF3 multiplier impressions but was unable too. The results are from a 64 man bf3 multiplayer game. I've never even played the single player game. biggrin.gif

Also to the poster who said I should get discreet graphics. I already have a 690. This thread was just to test overclocked igp performance

Oh ok, well thats impressive then. Granted, you have to reduce the settings to low on everything, but for a more budget minded individual looking to play the game, and willing to overlook the eye candy for the sake of saving a couple hundred dollars, the IGP Intel has made for the Ivy series should do nicely. Thanks for posting this info +rep
