Can my Intel HD 4000 play Far Cry 3?

It's something I have been curious about for a few days now. I think I have a Far Cry 3 download code lying around somewhere. Should I even bother opening it? :o

  1. Far cry 3 on hd 4000.it is imposible to play on it.you some good graphic card.
  2. lol, that's far cry 1.
    It's impossible with a intel hd 4000 to get decent fps, not even at 720p, it will not give more than ~20-25 fps(with the lowest settings).
  3. you might be able to run...but it hugely depends on your other system specs.

    what do you plan to do with that code or else?
  4. Just lower your resolution to something like 1280x768 put all settings to low and I bet you'd be able to play it. Enable gpu scaling and check off maintain centered aspect ratio so that the screen doesn't seemed stretched. I can play planetside 2 with my i5 2500k/HD3000 with that resolution on low settings/low rendering with avg 35 fps.
  5. phew.. Even with my 4850 in 1366x768 res, pair up with i5-3470, i can't get good frame rate (30-35fps average for my standard) in far cry 3.
  6. yes at 320x240 ultra (low) details you'll get 30 fps. :P
  7. I'm using an i7 3770K with 8GB memory... So you guys think I'll be all set for FC3 @ lowest settings 720p? :-)
  8. I hope you're trolling, for what you have on your signature, 100% sure that you're trolling.
    I mean for that specs, i can't believe you don't have money for a gfx card(and a good one).

    lol :lol: . Or maybe he is saving to buy graphic card, but not patient enough to test his rig to play games.
  10. I'd say no. HD 6670 is three times more powerful than HD 4000, and it's barely able to play at minimum:

  11. Good news. I installed it, and it's playable.

    All setting low, 1280x720, DX9. Not sure what kind of framerates I am getting... I would say 30ish. Not really sure how to tell what my FPS is. Anyone able to enlighten me?
  12. You can measure that with MSI afterburner.

  13. you can see your FPS while playing using FRAPS.

    Why would I buy a new graphics card when the next generation cards from AMD and NVIDIA are right around the corner? :non:
  15. Well, MSI Afterburner looks good... I think. :o

    New Technologies and newer generations of computer products will always be 'around the corner' if you follow that logic you'll never buy anything because 6-8 months after its release a newer & better product will be introduced and the cycle will go on and on and on..

    If you want a better framerate, I would suggest installing the ultra-low mod.

    There are:
    Multiple tweaks to draw distances and LODs.
    Tweaks to PostFX, including totally disabled SSAO and Depth of Field.
    Tweaks to shadows.
    Tweaks to reflections.

    It makes the game very easy to run.

  18. I have an I7 3770 with 8 GB Kingston 1600 on an AsRock Pro4. Playing Far Cry 3 on intel HD 4000 at 1280x768 with 25 FPS having details set to med-high w/o shadows.

    I'm not going to lie, I was using only the HD 4000 on my i7-3770K before. It was so that I could save up for my GTX 660 at the time. I only had to wait 2-3 weeks.
  20. It can.......
    I have run with intel hd 3000
  21. Sure you can play Far Cry 3 on HD3000 or HD4000 with HiAlgoBoost :)
