Intel HD 4600

Postby coldandtired on Fri May 08, 2015 1:21 pm

It's PC upgrade time and I've decided to go small!

So small, in fact, that it's starting to get problematic.

The case I'm interested in is the H1.S, which imposes certain limits on what components can fit in it.

To start with I was after a Kaveri processor in a mini-ITX board but it seems that will push the case uncomfortably close to the limit so I've scaled it back a bit more.

Now I'm looking at an i3 (probably 4360t) in a thin mini-ITX board.

The issue is that AMD has always been far better for onboard graphics and the Intel HD 4600 on the i3 is pretty weak.

While work has sadly taken away all my time I would still like to be able to play TF2 at some point.

So, has anyone any experience with playing TF2 (or other games) using this graphics card?

I use to run it on a celeron a few years back mate (one of the low powered t models) if it's set to dx8 you should be fine, otherwise throw a low profile gfx card in

No room for a discrete card :)

I played with HD1650x (or similar) built in years ago and survived, so I hope at least the 4600 will be a step up from that!
