(TEXT: Masayoshi Serizawa) Video cards have run out due to multiple factors, including the explosive mining boom caused by the soaring Bitcoin, the global shortage of semiconductors, and the stagnation of logistics due to corona, resulting in a significant increase in prices. As you know. There are many gamers who want to wait for the volume of video cards to increase and the price to settle down, but also want to play games. This time I would like to check how much you can enjoy the game with the GPU with built-in CPU. The entries from Intel CPUs are Core i7-11700K and Core i5-11400. From the 11th generation Core, the built-in GPU has been changed to the Xe architecture, and the performance has been greatly improved. If so, I would like to expect that the game can be played as it is. From AMD, choose Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G and Ryzen 3 3200G. The built-in GPU is famous for its higher performance than Intel because it uses Radeon technology. The 3200G will be released in 2019, and the architecture is as old as Zen +. If you can play the game to some extent with this, it can be said that it is a pretty good CPU because the price is cheap. ■ CPUs that participated in the war ■ Video card for comparison ■ Can you play light games in full HD? Let’s start with a light and popular game. Attention is paid to whether it can produce an average of 60 fps, which can be said to be a guideline for comfortable play with full HD resolution. First of all, from “Rainbow Six Siege”, a real FPS that was released in 2015 but is still popular. As a result of verification, AMD CPU can play in full HD. Comfortable play is a tough result for Intel. Next is the FPS “VALORANT”, which is popular with students because it can be enjoyed on low-spec PCs. There is only a representative of light FPS, and any CPU achieves an average of 60 fps up to medium image quality. If you lower the image quality to the lowest level, you can get a frame rate that can take advantage of high refresh rate LCDs such as 144Hz. However, if the image quality is the lowest, the graphics are omitted considerably, and the appearance is a little poor. The popular fighting game “STREET FIGHTER V” released in 2016 has a basic frame rate limit of 60fps. The point is how to keep it, but I’m glad that any CPU can be used if the image quality is set to “low”. □ Rainbow Six Siege □ VALORANT □ STREET FIGHTER V ■ Is it cool depending on the setting of middleweight games? Is it possible to play the popular battle royale games “Apex Legends” and “Fort Knight” in full HD? Both are “middleweight” games that require reasonably high specs. Apex Legends does not include the CPU’s built-in GPU in the required operating environment. Therefore, even if all the image quality settings are set to the bottom, it can be said that the Ryzen 7 PRO 4750G finally reaches an average of 60 fps, which is a rather heavy game. If you want to play with a certain level of image quality, you still want a video card. Fortnite includes Intel HD Graphics 4000 with built-in GPU in the required operating environment, and also has a performance mode that is still in the testing stage but simplifies drawing and reduces the load. If you use this, even if you set full HD and 3D resolution to 100%, you can get a frame rate that you can play comfortably with Core i5-11400 at about 67 fps. It can be said that “Fortnite can be enjoyed with the built-in GPU”. □ Apex Legend □ Fortnite ■ Will performance increase with high clock memory? The CPU’s built-in GPU does not have a dedicated video memory, and it is common to use part of the main memory for drawing graphics. Therefore, the operating clock of the main memory affects the drawing performance. For example, DDR4-2666 has a bandwidth of 21.3GB / s, but DDR4-3200 can increase to 25.6GB / s. Since 3D games exchange a large amount of drawing data, if the memory bandwidth is narrow, that may become a bottleneck and the frame rate may not increase. In fact, as you can see from the benchmark results, the higher the clock memory, the better the results. With Rainbow Six Siege, a frame rate improvement of around 15% was seen at all settings. If you want to get the most out of the built-in GPU, you should choose high clock memory. However, how high the clock memory works depends on the combination of CPU and motherboard. Check the manufacturer’s website for a list of the memory supported by the motherboard in advance. Also, when using OC memory, it will not work at the maximum clock unless “XMP” is enabled in the UEFI menu.

In the summer issue of DOS / V POWER REPORT 2021, a special feature entitled “Latest CPU 7th Game” is posted. doing. We delve into the latest CPUs from various perspectives, such as benchmark comparisons of the main current lineups of Intel and AMD, compatible motherboards, OC resistance, etc. In addition, a thorough comparison of 750W & 1,000W power supplies, verification of the ATX case that emphasizes cooling, etc. are completed in one book that clearly shows the parts to buy this summer.
