Reboot of the Tomb Raider series has arrived on PCs. Rise Of The Tomb Raider has its own requirements, so the question arises whether holders of integrated graphics will also be able to play it – even on the lowest settings.

We have the gameplay videos of the game tested with both the integrated graphics, Intel Skylake (Intel HD 530) and AMD Radeon R7 (model A10-7870K).

The comparison of the results does not make any sense because of the differences between the two processors (especially price). Intel processor is based on very powerful CPU cores and the average layout, and cheap APU from AMD features average CPU cores and very strong (for integrated graphics) format.

We start from Core i7 6700K + DDR4 2666 MHz RAM and from the below gameplay video you can see that smooth gameplay is impossible. At the lowest setting and a resolution of 1360 x 768 manages to get about 20 frames per second, and at 1920 x 1080 only a few frames per second.

Although the Radeon R7 (AMD A10-7870K + DDR3 2400 MHz RAM) is much stronger than the HD 530, here also there is no revelations. For stubborn resolution of 1360 x 768 and the lowest settings we get about 30 frames per second in full HD resolution of about 20 frames per second.

The situation should improve somewhat with dedicated drivers for the game, but do not expect any miracles as in order to run Rise Of The Tomb Raider you need a stronger external graphics card.
