Sorry I don't think you can. Even on the lowest possible setting, it'll not be enough. Besides, these integrated intel HD graphics are not meant for gaming anyways. lol

These requriments are false and you you cant go high settings,you should stick with low settings with 1080p res for like 25+ fps but however in youtube there are some videos about performance increase in the game :)

Got a new server up and running with annunaki mod amongst others. Search the unofficial servers for FM45 Annunaki Genesis, we have fast taming lvl cap at 152 for character. Friendly admin with no abuse on at all. Dragons are tameable as are alphas. Server is always up to date.

Yes, AS he told you you cant, minimum you need a dedicated grafic card. And i suppose you cant becasuse your cpu too, a 1.4 Ghz cpu is a quite slow one.

Sorry m8, I do not think your rig would run it at even the lowest settings. The game not optimized at all since it is in early access. My rig only runs it at around 30-40 fps on medium settings, its a quite demanding game.

Probably at a blend of mostly low and some medium settings, but I can't tell you for sure since my monitor is only 1600 x 900. I run it at around 40 fps with my rig on medium but again its with a lower res.

Also another thing to note. depending on what area you are on the map and what you are looking at your fps may increase or decrease. When I look at a large base with a good amount of dinos it gets choppy and my fps lowers a lot.

mmm , i think you can in medium-high settings. You would get around 30-40 fps more less. I have a laptop with a gtx 960m , that is supposed to be worse than yours and i get 25 on those settings.

Probably a mix of low-high, would get you 45 frames, but low-medium should get you at least 50

What res? If its like 1080p for 60+ fps you will need low-medium settings but probably low.But however there are some videos of how to improve performance in ark,go watch and you should do higher settings with 60 fps.

Game has ****ty optimization so unfortunately not.. Medium would be best,just untick all the settings on the bottom in the options menu (motion blur,film grain,SSAO etc. etc.) and you should get decent fps :)

Medium settings on 1080p and 720p you can put view distance and textures on high,and you can also check some of the settings at the bottom (film gran,ambient occlusion etc.) you should get a solid 40fps,it will still sometimes drop and stutter but nothing we can really do about that :P

To Give you an idea, I get about 10-15 Fps on Nvidia 630... (the PC I'm using until i get my new rig) All on Low settings. (Have done the opt. thing aswell, Makes nights unbearable!). Still have over 1250 hours on this game. A lot of fun, despite the frames.
