Intel HD Pentium G840 Game Requirement Analysis

Intel HD Pentium G840 is a specific version of the Intel HD Graphics that comes embedded on the CPU 'Pentium G840 2.8GHz'.
It's based on the Sandy Bridge architecture, meaning it features 6 SPUs. The GPU's clock is initially set at 850MHz and can go to up to 1150MHz. The max memory type supported is DDR3 1333MHz - therefore, the GPU's max memory clock is 667MHz.
Intel HD Pentium G840's gaming performance is very limited and so most games will have to be played at very reduced settings while extremely demanding games are probably out of the question.
