Hi guys, looking for advice. I need a laptop that can run some old games, l4d2, anno 1404 and eq2. Eq2 needs a Nvidia GeForce 260/AMD Radeon HD 4870 or higher.

Does a Radeon R5 integrated suffice or what do I need to look for? Thanks for your answers!

The Intel HD 620 is about as powerful as a nVidia 920m; probably about 85 - 90% of the 920m's performance. But actual performance depends on the specific game.

Compared to a desktop GPU, it is likely a bit more powerful than the Radeon HD 5670.

No integrated GPU is as powerful as either one of those desktop GPUs. The integrated Radeon R5 GPU is especially weak; it is weaker than the Intel HD 4000 graphics core which came out back in 2012.

Best guess, those GPUs are somewhere in between a nVidia 940mx and nVidia GTX 950m. Likely a bit closer to the GTX 950m.

And the intel hd620? The laptop is just for browsing, open office, Netflix and those old games.

The eq2 engine depends more on the cpu I think.
