Graphics: Intel HD 4000 mobile w/ 1.6 GB VRAM
- The 1.6GB VRAM is a lie unto itself, disregarding that the Intel HD4000 can barely run Far Cry 1, let alone anything modern.
There's not many benchmarks for HD4000 around for Far Cry 3 as I really think it's common knowledge -within the PC community- that it wouldn't be playable even if it did actually run (or rather, "eventually load" to what more looks like a slideshow).It would be slower in Far Cry 3 than in Metro 2033 that much is for certain

The Intel HD4000 is significantly
slower performing than the AMD/ATI Radeon 7770 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX470 which barely run Far Cry 3 at 1280x1024 (which is a similar resolution to 1366x768).
- 1280 x 1024 = 1,310,720
- 1366 x 768 = 1,049,088 (sure it's less pixels, but rendering a scene in 16:9 widescreen is much harder than at 4:3 or 5:4).Don't get duped into a GeForce GT440 either, especially a mobile variant --- they're just relabeled older tech!
