Games working at 1280x720 resolution LOW/HIGH and I can say that the quality is very good and the game we do not stack.
Textures: HIGH, Terrain: MEDIUM/HIGH, Water: HIGH, and everything else on LOW (integrated graphics) Picture is great!

High settings for 30 FPS ? It's like you run this game with your Intel HD Graphics 4600.


You'll be able to run this game at Ultra settings with 60 average FPS, without AA and Vsync. And this one has a good optimisation.
