Intel HD Graphics 3000 Desktop Game Requirement Analysis
Intel HD Graphics 3000 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Desktop Sandy Bridge Processors.
The Sandy Bridge GT2 Core includes support for DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.1. Additionally, it also offers better Video Encoding and Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessor.
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2 which offers 12 Shader Processing Units, 2 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 850MHz and goes up to 1350MHz, in Turbo Mode.
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from System to System. Typically, the GPU reserves 1.7GB. 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 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 667MHz.
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.
The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GT 610.
