HD M5-6Y57 Game Requirement Analysis
Intel HD M5-6Y57 is the specific version of Intel HD Graphics 515 Mobile that is integrated in the Core M5-6Y57 Processor.
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-Y offers 24 Shader Processing Units, 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs.
The Central Unit Initially Runs at 300MHz and goes up to 900MHz, in Turbo Mode.
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.
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.
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 GT 525M.
Intel HD M5-6Y57 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1366x768. We recommend 4GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
