How well can the Intel HD Graphics 520 Mobile run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

The Intel HD Graphics 520 Mobile is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

How many years will the Intel HD Graphics 520 Mobile graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Intel HD Graphics 520 Mobile in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this Intel HD Graphics 520 Mobile graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Intel HD Graphics 520 Mobile? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile. This PC hardware upgrade performs 1407% better and can run 982 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB, as it can run 615 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 838% increased graphics performance.

Intel HD Graphics 520 Mobile Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Intel HD Graphics 520 Mobile are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Skylake ULV Mobile Processors.


Architecture
The Skylake Architecture succeeds the Broadwell Architecture and aims for increased CPU and Graphics Performance, within the same Power Requirements. It includes support for DirectX 12.1, OpenCL 2.0 and OpenGL 4.4, as well as DDR4 Memory Support.
The GPU Codenamed GT2-U offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs.


GPU
The Central Unit Initially Runs at 300MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory: Speed
The Operating Memory Clock depends at which speed the System's RAM is running and which Memory Type is installed and is ultimately limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 933MHz for DDR3 and 1067MHz for DDR4.
Depending on whether or not the System's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit Memory Interface.


Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies according to the System. The GPU may reserve up to 1.7GB.


Performance
Because Performance depends heavily on the Memory Bandwidth, it may vary heavily from System to System.
Best Case Scenario, expect Performance Identical to a dedicated GeForce 630M.


System Suggestions
Intel HD Graphics 520 Mobile is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

Well, overall it's slightly worse than my HD5670 (to make a weird comparison); one might say my card is bad for games, but that depends: I can play most of the games I want flawlessly plus while enjoying good - beautiful graphics. That's because I'm mostly into 2D Platformer games, but also for example because I prefer Racing games from back in the years (like GRID: 2 and the Dirt series). Together with your other parts, which make your HD 520 the bottleneck, you can play nicely, but if you're into recent 3D games or games like GTA V, Mafia 3 etc., forget it with that integrated graphics, even on 1366 x 768 only ;-)


So it all depends, and mostly has to do with your game taste :D
