In this case you computer's RAM will begin to work in dual channel mode which means that it will become at least 15% faster.

Basically, if you’re currently in the market for a new graphics card, an Nvidia GPU gives you a better chance of taking advantage of these next-generation graphics technologies — or that’s what Nvidia wants you to believe, anyway.

For more on this topic, you should read our hardware analyst Joel Hruska’s treatise on how the Nvidia/AMD spat could result in Balkanized gaming.

To apply it click the Intel HD Graphics driver tray icon, select Graphics Properties, then click the 3D tab and move the slider to Performance.

In this way you sacrifice a bit of image quality for improved 3D performance, which should lead to a few more frames per second (FPS) in games.

Close any unnecessary background programs while using graphics-intense programs.

Background programs may be robbing your CPU of cycles it could be using to boost graphical performance.The company basically reiterated what we already knew: DX12 will be supported by all Maxwell, Kepler, and Fermi GPUs — or, in other words, about 65% of graphics cards currently in circulation.The diagrams (below) are a bit convoluted, but I think Nvidia’s general gist is that, by the time DX12 launches late next year, it will have a lot more hardware support than AMD’s Mantle.Of course, if you are not satisfied with the suggested options, you can go to each column to close the programs or services according to your own needs.These 5 tips will greatly improve your Intel HD Graphics performance thus letting you enjoy smooth game play.In this article I'm going to show you how to get the max out of the integrated graphics card in Intel processors - Intel HD Graphics. Update the graphics card driver The intel Graphics manufacturer update their drivers on a monthly basis to help improve performance.
