I have a desktop with a 3rd gen intel processor, no GPU. Ran D3 with just the intel graphics and on medium settings I get about 30fps, good enough to pay the game. It's much smoother on my gaming rig but intels new processors are making mediocre GPUs obsolete

i can play it on max settings with my intel hd 3000. seriously most people dont know **** about integrated graphics. everytime you ask them about it, theyll just tell you that all it can play is minecraft and get a gaming pc.


Max settings? At 2 FPS?


see? these kids are ignorant as hell.

Dude dual core 1.7 + 1.7 = 3.4GHz


the architect of a dual core makes it faster than just doubling the speed in a single core since it has two pipes to send operations through if one core is busy. it's much faster than a single core 3.4GHz

What the...


The OP put 2X1.7GHz

I quoted someones post that said he couldnt find a ivy bridge at 1.7GHz and that something smelt fishy
So i simplified it at by saying 1.7+1.7 = 3.4GHZ
I know its different from what it really is but you get the point right? I was trying to point out what the OP really meant to say was 3.4GHz. Not saying that both cores are running at 1.7 and figured that saying that he would understand that what he was looking for was a 3.4 on intels website.
If you didnt it has "2 CORES" and the i5 is running at 3.4GHz with some procs it has intel's Turbo boost that could go higher if needed.
Also some intels procs have hyper threading which makes your pc look like it has 4 cores. I worked on an i7 at work and its a quad core but with hyper threading it shows 8 cores

I run on middle setting on a i5 Hd3000 with no issues. Does run hot but I use a fan to keep it cool.

So i have this acer aspire s3 with intel core-i5 2x1.7GHz, 4GB RAM DDR3 and Intel HD 4000 graphics. I can hardly run D3 with all set to minimum on 1366x768 with like 15 fps average, so it's not playable. Others claim that they can run the game on high with 40 fps on this GPU, i wonder how it's possible. I have the latest drivers, any suggestions ?

I can run this game using a core i3-2310M and an Intel HD Graphics 3000. Granted the settings are not fabulous, but I can play it. Any kind of slowness I experience in game is from latency spikes. Maybe the reason I don't experience lagging is because I have hyper-threading with the processor (making my dual core run effectively as a quad core when needed), but I cannot say for sure.

it's just not the way it works.. Different cores can't work on the same threads, so it is NEVER like doubling the speed unless the specific application has multiple threads, and most don't.

seriously, by that logic my quad core i5 should be equivalent to a 12ghz single core and that just isn't happening, trust me.

also liked the guy who said one 7200rpm HDD isn't the same as another because quality of components are lesser is why you're getting such a bad framerate?

look, dedicated memory or shared? on-cpu graphics or seperate gpu? there are so many fricken variables.. like uh, what resolution are you running? You have a nice big screen with a high resolution? Bump your res down and you'll get a major increase in framerate.

and quad core i5 @ 3ghz and a 5770 didn't run well at full settings, because of my big 24'' monitor

I play at home with a Phenom II X6 1100T and a AMD HD 7970 and obviously runs fine with all the eyecandy turned up. but my laptop has an Intel core 2 duo @2 ghz with a AMD HD4670 discrete mobile gpu. And it runs D3 but on medium low settings with no AA. The game is worlds apart on each system. The game looks so bad on my laptop compared to my PC I refuse to play on the laptop.

I would love to see someone max out D3 on an Intel integrated gpu. I am guessing it would be chugging at 0-15 fps.

something doesnt pass the smell test here.

I see nothing on intel's site that shows an i5 ivybridge chip @ 1.7. What is your CPUs model #.

HD4000 should be more than fine for D3. what are the mahcines overall specs


Dude dual core 1.7 + 1.7 = 3.4GHz


Nope, doesn't work like that, sorry.

A program does not run on multiple processors at once, UNLESS it's running in multiple instances (Browsers using tabs)

D3 is multithreaded, generally you get twice the performance assuming two threads are accessing different cache line on a multicore cpu. Although they may idle a lot waiting for renderer to finish rendering due to its single threaded nature, but there are ways to counter that.

turn off shadows. you should be able to max it out.

I beleve that was one of the bugs with the intel chipset and there shadowing system in game. Disabling it fixes it. Not sure if it was ever patched.

lmao i played on a intel hd 3000 and I couldnt get above 30 fps SOLO

In groups I was @ like 15-20 fps max

and If i had casters in the party like wizards/wd I cudnt get over 10 fps

and this was w/ every tweak and optimization

Stop Bull!@#$ting lol

You need a Good GPU to play diablo 3

No you don't...

D3 is far from a demanding game.

Intel HD 4000 graphics


Is this "onboard video" IE part of the motherboard, not a separate video card? If so, this is usually the failing point for some systems (usually, laptops) to run games. Many will work fine with it, some will find it woefully underpowered, and others, like D3, will flat out refuse to run even though decent settings on D3 would work on a five-year old PC.

I had a 3.2 GHz dual with 4 gigs DDR2 and an ATI something and it ran fine.

Today, thanks to TAXIO REFUNDO I have a 4.0 GHz oct-core with 16 gigs DDR3 and an ATI something awesome. Now, it runs fine, and my shadows...

My shadows...

MY SHADOWS....

ARE SMOOOOVE.
