More about does intel graphics 4000 graphic card
  1. It means it has integrated graphics. It uses system RAM instead of it's own graphics memory and is vastly inferior to all modern graphics cards.
  2. The HD 4000 is Intels current video chipset.

  3. It is integrated gpu means onboard.it has 128mb memory.if you want to play games then get pc.
  4. Integrated graphics is graphics chip that is integrated with either motherboard or CPU. They also use system memory for their needs.

    They are decent for basic tasks but don't expect great 3D performance from them.
  5. If you want to game on it you should check this out and see the specs.

  6. The Intel HD 4000 is integrated graphics inside the Intel Sandy Bridge generation CPUs. I believe it has 128MB of dedicated RAM and is capable of using up to around 1.5GB of system RAM (normal RAM).

    Below is a link to a sample of games that Intel states is "playable". Of course whether or not it delivers the performance you are looking for is a different story.

    I would add Fallout 3 and Mass Effect 3 to the list since I have played those games with the older Intel HD 3000 graphics core. Fallout: New Vegas should be playable, and Mass Effect 1 and 2 should be playable as well.

    You need to download a file to play Fallout 3 though. Simply Google for "Odblivion" to find the DLL file that you need to download. Since the DLL file was original developed for Oblivion, that game should also be playable with the HD 4000.
