This game might not run that smoothly on such an asymmetric multi GPU set up… But that set up's performance can match some versions of the GT 740M so high settings or even tweaked max with MSAA disabled should not be a problem… Would advise sticking to high though…

Medium or even tweaked high at 1280x720… GT 620 is comparable to my HD 4000 and I run on tweaked high at 1280x720…

My old rig with i3-3220 + HD 6670 1 GB DDRR3 could max this game easily even with MSAA enabled at 53-60 fps most of the time… Usually it stayed at 58-60…

High settings at 1280x720 or even 1366x768 without MSAA and 40-60 fps… Even my HD 4000 manages somewhat smooth frame rates on tweaked high at 1280x720 and your 8670M is 40-50% stronger…

High to max settings without MSAA… GT 440/630 manage those settings at 50-60 fps at 1600x900 resolution and they are slightly weaker than HD 6570…
