    i3 HD Graphics and pixel shader 3.0?

    peccatus

      I'm trying to play a game called Magicka.

       

      They say it doesn't support integrated graphics.

       

      When I asked if a laptop with integrated graphics could ever run the game,

      someone said:

       

      "Magicka is using pixelshader 3.0, which means that it depends on running  programs on the GPU that your hardware simply can't support.

      Except for a rewrite of the rendering engine, I can pretty certainly say that the answer is no."

      So is this accurate? Does my i3-m350's integrated graphics not have pixel shader 3.0?

       

      Could I use this as a work around? http://transgaming.com/business/swiftshader/

       

      Do I have any hope of playing this game?

       

      Bless you!
