Intel HD 4000

The HD 4000 is a GPU from Intel. This chip has a bad gaming score at 1% in our GPU benchmark.

In terms of clock speed, the HD 4000 GPU core runs at a frequency of 650 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1000 MHz. The core clock is directly related to the performance of a GPU, the higher the clock, the more processing can be done per second. A higher clock does not guarantee better performance by itself, this also depends on the number of shading units and other elements of the pipeline.

As for rendering API support, the HD 4000 supports up to DirectX 11.1. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.

Power and thermals for the Intel HD 4000 are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 45 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
