Hi all i just get a christmass preresent the cool game
Assassin's creed

but i'm little confused wiith my Intel Graphics card. i have new laptop is kind of powerfuel

HP G62-452SA Laptop, Intel® CoreTM i3-370M 2.40GHz, 3GB RAM, 320GB HDD, 15.6" HD, DVD±RW, HDMI, Webcam, Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
it's have 7200rpm HD

but when i put the Assassin's creed game to the Can i run it? page then the System Requirements Lab Analysis window tell me that my laptop will fail to play it because i don't have the minimum requirement to play
{Sorry, your computer does not meet the minimum specifications required to run this product. Please review the details below for more information.}

but when i review all this informaction i will find some contradictory info at video cardreference

the page say

Video Card

Minimum: 256 MB DirectX 10.0compliant video card or DirectX 9.0compliant card with Shader Model 3.0 or higher (NVIDIA GeForce 6800+ / ATI Radeon X1600+)

You Have: Intel(R) HD Graphics

Required Video RAM

256 MB

you Have
1.2 GB




Hardware T&L



Pixel Shader version

Required 3.0

you have 4.0

Vertex Shader version

looks like i have pretty everything but the game work ok {not slow} only on the low graphics and shadows settings..it's that because lot of games are support just for NVIDIA or / ATI Radeon cards???? somethime this page looks to me like made lob{work} for this card sellers because for example lot of easy games whats i play easy on my laptop the page

No it's because integrated graphics are bad in general. They have been improving but they haven't been acceptable except on the latest generation Intel HD 3000 integrated graphics which are only available on second generation Core i3/5/7 CPUs.

Also the only things your Intel HD graphics pass are the basic features which are required to just start up the game. The chip itself is still very bad performance wise.
