Intel Haswell GT3 runs Skyrim at 1920 x 1080

Posted on Thursday, September 13 2012 @ 13:52:18 CEST by

It's amazing how far integrated graphics have come over the years. Half a decade ago you couldn't even play contemporary games at decent settings with a low-end graphics card, and now Intel is demonstrating at its IDF in San Francisco how well Haswell's integrated graphics can handle The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

DailyTech was there and saw two systems running Skyrim; an Ivy Bridge based chip with GT2 integrated graphics and a Haswell based chip with GT3 graphics. The new GT3 graphics of Haswell promise twice the graphics performance of Ivy Bridge, at a power consumption similar to the Intel HD 4000.

The Haswell's GT3, which will only be available for mobile processors, was able to render Skyrim at 1920 x 1080 pixels with High setting, while the Ivy Bridge's HD 4000 GPU had to stick to medium settings and a 1366 x 768 resolution.

Unfortunately, Intel did not provide details about the framerate but according to other media reports the demonstration ran smooth.
