Summary

Intel started HD Graphics sales 1 April 2012. This is Generation 7.0 architecture desktop card based on 22 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use.

Compatibility-wise, this is an integrated video card. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 35 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at

0.49%

of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.

  • Passmark
  • 3DMark Fire Strike Graphics

Passmark

This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.

Benchmark coverage: 26%

HD Graphics 143

3DMark Fire Strike Graphics

Fire Strike is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming PCs. It features two separate tests displaying a fight between a humanoid and a fiery creature seemingly made of lava. Using 1920x1080 resolution, Fire Strike shows off some realistic enough graphics and is quite taxing on hardware.

Benchmark coverage: 13%
