HD i5 4200M Game Requirement Analysis
Intel HD i5 4200M is the Specific Version of Intel HD Graphics 4600 Mobile that is integrated in the Core i5-4200M Processor.
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2 which offers 20 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 400MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode.
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from laptop to laptop. Typically, the GPU reserves 1GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on the at which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 800MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with a dedicated GeForce GT 540M.
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a System with Intel HD i5 4200M.
