I have big graphic issues with HD 4000 and 3D software which use Open GL 2.0 : display is very awful, very very low fps.
I think the problem is specific with Open GL 2.0, not 3.x or 4.x.
There are same problems on several 3D professionnal software. 3D software still use Open GL 2.0 today !
HD 4000 support Open GL 3.x and more but does this chipset and driver support Open GL 2.0 ?
Tested platforms : laptop with integrated chipset, Windows 7 64bits, last graphic driver 3257, Core i7, 8 Go RAM and more.
Same test done with nVidia card and it works.
Should I discard all laptop with Intel card ?
Pleased to read answers_
The Intel® HD Graphics Controller 4000 supports OpenGL 4. You can confirm this information at the following link:
I recommend you contacting the computer manufacturer to confirm with them if the chipset in your computer supports or not the required OpenGL version. It is important to say that the Graphics Controller in the processor is a different component than the Chipset in the board.
Another good step is to update the3D software with a patch or contacting the software developer.
