Intel HD4000 you mean? I use my 2012 MBA 13" (128GB/4GB) for casual gaming, including War Z and Borderlands 2, which on reduced graphics settings and lower-than-native resolutions does the job. It's definitely not a "gaming machine" though.Hello,
I was wondering if the new intel 5000hd would be able to play DayZ/arma 2 smoothly?
How good would gaming in general be on the new MBA?
Only time will tell. There's not even leaked performance benchmarks out yet, so nothing's certain. With settings on "Medium/Low" rather than "High", it might be able to run 1080p at playable rates, but it remains an ultraportable so you definitely shouldn't expect it to be ultra-smooth.Yeah I meant the haswell one. Do you think it will run DayZ @ 1080p?
There is no technical reason why it wouldn't, besides DayZ being one of the most poorly coded games known to the industry. Even a desktop GTX 680 has trouble delivering 60 fps at 1080p, I don't think you will be happy at how an IGP will perform.Yeah I meant the haswell one. Do you think it will run DayZ @ 1080p?
