When it comes to gaming on PC, there are lots of people who still rely on their built-in Intel graphics to play games. Running high-end games on built-in graphics often result in low fps, heating up of the system, and in some cases, the game won’t even start. However, there are still some games that run fine on Intel graphics drivers when the system settings have been tweaked to improve quality and performance.
