How well can the Iris i5 6260U run games
The Iris i5 6260U is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

This low performing GPU is unable to play any of the most demanding games available today.

How many years will the Iris i5 6260U graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Iris i5 6260U in your PC? You should definitely consider replacing this Iris i5 6260U graphics card, if it is still in your gaming PC.

Iris i5 6260U Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Intel Iris i5 6260U is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 540 Mobile that is integrated in the Core i5-6260U Processor..


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 GT3-E offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 2 ROPs.


GPU
The Central Unit Initially Runs at 350MHz and goes up to 950MHz, 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.
An addition to the Iris Graphics is the access to a L4 Cache of 64MB eDRAM which further increases the Memory Performance.


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 830M.


System Suggestions
Iris i5 6260U is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
