My friend recently bought a new notebook featuring a new Ivy Bridge processor. The new Ivy Bridge CPU's feature the Intel HD 4000 graphics. We decided to benchmark both the Intel HD 4000 graphics and the Intel 3000 graphics...
Test Rig 1: Test Rig 2:
GPU: Intel HD 3000 GPU: Intel HD 4000
CPU: i7 2630qm CPU: i7 3610qm
RAM: 8gb ddr3 1333mhz RAM: 8gb ddr3 1333mhz
Resolution: 1366x768 Resolution: 1366x768
We thought we would test a very demanding game, an average demanding game and a lesser demanding game. Our 3 choices were Battlefield 3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Call of Duty: Black ops. Let's start with the lesser Demanding game.
Call of Duty: Black Ops:
1024x768. Medium Settings No AA, No AF.
Intel HD 3000: An average of 28 fps.
Intel HD 4000: An average of 36 fps.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim:
1280x720, Low settings, No AA, No AF.
Intel HD 3000: An average of 26 fps
Intel HD 4000: An average of 37 fps.
1024x768, Medium AA, AF: 2x.
Intel HD 3000: An average of 18 fps.
Intel HD 4000: An average of 26 fps.
In conclusion, you can see that Intel 4000 Graphics outperform the Intel 3000 graphics by an estimated average of 10fps, in each game.
