If you disable shadows and MSAA, this thing will run on a toaster… No seriously, it runs on a Pentium D 3 GHz, 1 GB DDR2 RAM and GeForce 210 on low at 1024x768 and good fps…

Medium and 40-60 fps no problem… If you turn the resolution down to 1280x720 or 1280x800, you could even go tweaked high… Keep MSAA disabled…

This game runs on Pentium 4 and Geforce 210 with only 1 GB RAM on 1280x720 and low settings… HD 4000 can manage tweaked high at 40-60 fps and medium at 60 fps average… It is not really demanding to begin with and very well optimized…

I run it on my HD 4000 on tweaked high at 1280x720 and very playable fps… However, you have the ULV variant of the HD 4000 and it is up to 20% weaker… I recommend sticking to medium at 1280x720…

The R6 7300 has performance comparable to GT 620M or Radeon HD 7650M when paired with dual channel RAM… You should be able to manage tweaked high settings and no MSAA on 1366x768 with decent frame rates… But max is out of the question… This game is better optimized for Intel integrated GPUs…

This game is very well optimized for Intel iGPU but not for AMD APU… Try sticking to medium at 1366x768 and no MSAA for best fps results…
