I want to buy a laptop with great resolution and with the latest Intel Core i5 and with 8GB internal storage. What I don't know is if the graphics card that comes with the processor (Intel HD graphics 4400) is good enough for games like GTA V. Is it?

Thanks for the answers!

Probably not.
Minimum requirements look like GTX 670M or HD 6800M.

For your reference here is a list of some videos of games that played with the Intel HD 4400.

The following is a video for GTA 4 on a laptop with a Core i3-3110m CPU and Intel HD 4000 graphics core. The current generation Intel HD 4400 is a little more powerful, but keep in mind that the Intel HD 4400 is still considered weak compared to modern dedicated graphics chips. You can use it to help you determine if it performs / looks good enough for you to play GTA 4 with a HD 4400 graphics core.

Yes, it will run between 30-40 FPS. It lags a little but is playable

Extremely unlikely. The developers recommend a GPU with 512mb of memory. Generally, this means we'll be looking at desktop 500 series, like the 550 or 560. Intel 4600 would be barely playable, but I doubt 4400 would play on 1366x766. Maybe save up for a more powerful model, or give us your budget so we can find a better fit for you.

I wouldn't count on it. Only 8 GB of internal storage. Or are you confusing that with RAM? Because I think the game is going to require more then 8 GB storage alone. Heck, your operating system should take up more than that. What is the RAM? And what kind of I5 (what mhz) is it? But honestly, no matter what you say I don't think that graphics card is going to cut it. I don't know if you could even run GTA IV. Possibly on low settings.

Actually, I would suspect it could. Not at any high settings. But play with the setting, especially the resolutions. If you can stand lower resolutions, modern games are good at improving performance at lower resolutions. I doubt you will be able to get higher than 2x AA and low textures. But, totally doable.

G'day mate.

All I can say is don't... DON"T... get your hopes up. It is not a graphics card. It is and integrated graphics chip built into the CPU. I would guess that while it might just barely run some games on certain reduced settings. It will not be a happy experience. If your last computer was a commodore 64 then you might notice a slight improvement. lol.

I'm saying this so you you don't take some of the "maybe" and "possibly" tones in the previous posts as a yes. Its a maybe which lives next door to a guy called NO!

I also forgot that it is a laptop that your looking at. I've seen GTA V played on laptop with dedicated 650m graphics and, from my perspective it still looked as appealing as a projector on a sink full of dirty dish water. (exaggerated but still not good)

Don't do it Luke! You do not want to be up poop creek without a paddle. If anything you want overkill.
In this case you need serious info.

Yes. It will support. I have a Dell Vostro 15 3546 with i3 4005u 1.7GHz and Intel HD 4400 2gb. I can play BF4 and AC Black Flag with resolution 1280x600 with medium settings and Min FPS of 30 which is playable.

You're better off getting laptop with dedicated GPU....Even a laptop with entry level GPU such as GT 720m or Radeon 8670m will blow HD 4400 out of the water and cost difference will probably be just around $40-$50......Only Intel GPU's that can run modern Games at playable FPS are HD 5100 and HD 5200 but you'll have to buy high end i7's to get those GPU's and it'll be cheaper to get I5 with dedicated a gpu...

I have a laptop with an i3-4010U with Intel graphics 4400. I was curious to find if it would play Battlefield 4, since it's extremely below minimum system specifications. Imagine my surprise when it not only played, but was quite playable in Multiplayer mode as well. Sure it was on low graphics settings, but it did work. Oddly enough, it almost seemed to give a performance advantage on the hit markers and kills per round fired. I don't know how GTA stacks up against BF4, but there's some data for you.

Integrated graphics may not be good for gaming, but modern integrated graphics are at least capable of playing most modern games. Integrated graphics aren't so weak as they used to be. I went from a crappy old NVIDIA video card to a laptop w/ integrated graphics and it is so much better. Games actually run decently at native resolution without glitches.
