NOVA3 is a good looking game as is Dead Trigger and such, but they are very small, limited games. They have such a small area to draw and such a small LOD fade. NOVA doesn't need to render the sea in the background, for example, NVOA isn't a huge, sprawling landscape.
Dude, come on.

Both you and Kand are entirely twisting the entire point of what I was saying. So listen, and stop detracting from what I originally said.
I said a short while ago that the iPad 4 has the most powerful graphics. Deeldo replied and said that the Surface Pro did. I replied and I said that despite that the iPad will still have better graphics for some games, because developers don't optimise for the HD 4000 because it's on the low end of the spectrum in regard to graphics, whereas the SGX543MP2/SGX554MP4 and SGX543MP3 are on the other hand, the most powerful on iOS and thus games are optimised for it.
The Intel HD 4000 graphics aren't capable of playing Crysis: Warhead on anything but the lowest settings at 1920x1080, if it can even handle that... which is why I'm comparing the lowest end graphics in Crysis: Warhead, to what N.O.V.A 3 has.
How is that difficult to understand? Stop going on about Crysis having more depth and such, of course it does. That was never my argument.

No. This thread is derailed because several members here, yourself included, are twisting what I originally said into an argument I never made.

Somehow you two have twisted his words into something else. Pot calling the kettle black with all your straw man BS.
Here's some screenshots of both N.O.V.A 3 and Crysis: Warhead (on lowest settings) reaffirming my point, that despite HD 4000 graphics being more powerful, games optimised for the SGX543MP2 can

And that's just on the SGX543MP2 on an iPad mini. If you look at the SGX543MP3 in the iPhone 5 it has even more grunt to work with. Real Racing 3 and Infinity Blade: Dungeons should really show off what they can do.
