so, i checked around the forums, and no one seems to say much about these for gaming. i see why, obviously they are just integrated piece of crap graphics compared to a desktop, however i want to know!
The Radeon HD4250 integrated laptop graphics, or intel 4500M integrated laptop graphics seem OK. (im looking at a cheap used compaq presario CQ56 of some sort, for work like internet browsing, and documens, and SOME games)
so when im away from my main PC, i want to be able to play some low end gaming, in which i want to know if these integrated graphics will handle. im looking at games spanning from 2000 to 2006. so i assume these graphic chips can run any 2000 game on max everything (medal of honor allied assault, for example) however, how well will EITHER of these chips run a game from 2005, or 2006 (like need for speed most wanted, or carbon from 2005, and 2006). call of duty 2 at max? need for speed underground 2 at max?
im looking at a 1366 x 768 resolution to help the gaming performance estimate. also, pretend both chips are being used in a laptop with like 2Gb of DDR3, and similar CPUs (like an AMD/Intel 2.2 or 2.3 Ghz laptop CPU
also, which chip is better? are they close? or is one significantly better than the other?
i don't deal with integrated graphics, so i have no idea how to judge on how well they perform.
At least it has a dual core CPU and a Radeon 7520G, which at least performs about like a 5550 Desktop GPU. You could at least play games on low res with it.
oh wow, that samsung has some decent specs for its price, i will deffinantly consider that one also. also i thank everyone for there input, but no one responded for how the gaming was for the games i asked about, remember, im honestly not looking to play modern games, i have a MAIN desktop rig for that, all i want is old 2000-2006 games to run decent with med-high settings. thats it, i dont want to play borderlands, or crysis, or supreme commander lol. just some old games. unreal tournament 2004, half life, and the other games i mentioned. how will the 4250/intel 4500m, play those games? also, the 7520 in the samsung you linked me, how will those play those games? i looked at passmark scores, and the 7520 beat the 4250 with a score like 3 times better lol!
