Intel HD 5500 ‘Broadwell’ Gaming – Project Cars


Testing Project Cars running on Intel HD 5500 graphics on an Intel Core i3-5010U processor, in an Intel NUC5i3RYH.

This test was run at 1280×720 with minimum graphics settings, with frame rates typically in the 25-35fps range during gameplay – the video was captured in spectator mode as my recording on my separate capture system wasn’t possible as the preview is too choppy during recording.

Whilst the game is just about playable at these settings it really isn’t getting the best out of the Project Cars experience. Additionally playing in wet weather conditions will likely render the game unplayable due to their impact on performance.
