    Anybody tried out F1 2012 on a Macbook Pro 2011 with Intel HD3000?
    The games requires a HD4000 as a minimum, but on youtube there several video's claiming this game running on older Macbook Pro's
    I would expect lessor video performance, but not working at all seems a bit strange to me.

    Does it work? Anybody any experience with this?

    I don't see the point of running the game even if HD3000 is capable of running the game, because it won't do very well.


    Well, this might answer your question. Even runs on OS X as well.

    You will get severe slowdown in areas of high detail even when running on the lowest settings. The HD4000 is a lot more powerful and can support the game however the HD3000 slowdown means we decided it did not make our quality standards and would not be supported.

    You can if you *really* want complete the game on an HD3000 (we did in testing) but in many sections the experience is not good enough for official support.
