It also has OC settings in the BIOS, but they don't really work (maybe they are n there b/c this is an ES version), but DRAm OC should be on every device. While it can't game like a dedicated desktop card or high-end mobile card, it does match some older generation mobile cards in many scenarios (R9 M270X) and others in some scenarios (GTX 640M). The older the game, the better it plays it. It can play games, but it's more like if you are somewhere and have an itch to game, this device will let you scratch that itch. It can play GTA:V, it wont be the prettiest, but it works and is "playable", I played on it for a few hours and let others try it out too to make sure they agreed. From what I see in synthetics, it's very strong CPU cores help balance out iGPU.
