AMD vs Intel isn't really a huge issue. I have run AMD for years.
It's about the quality of whichever you are using, and sadly your system is lacking.
I would be amazed if you could run it on low at 15fps.
Simple. You're using a laptop. That processor isn't made for heavy processes. It's great for simple things like browsing the internet or things like maplestory. But using it in 3D games like GW2 is highly impossible. It also doesn't change that GW2 has a awful optimized engine, and the recommended specs will be changed into the minimum.
Want more proof? I run a i7 3770k 3.9Ghz (turbo), 2x Asus GTX660TI, 16gb ram and I run it on max settings not even above the 50fps.
Want even more proof? Those videos are atleast 2 years old.
And as I've been told and said. Mobile GPUs are lower spec'd than their desktop variants. For instance, a GTX 780M is more like a GTX 650 or so. AMD However has the better Mobile advantage in GPUs. For instance, a 7950 or so would be more like a 7500~7600 or so.
Okay..so I am still doing some searching and some people say that GW2 is pretty optimized when it comes to graphics. Well here is a link of someone asking basically the same thing I asked with intel HD graphics and they were told they would be able to play the game. Have I said I would mainly just be doing PVE? http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/...uild-wars.html
Also here is a video not too old like the others, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVz2RUS0UVI
So is it possible that my computer can indeed play the game..at low settings or medium but with some low settings like AA off Shadows low or off. I am not sure if they are some what the same in terms of graphics..but I played LOTRO on medium settings and I was able to play it just fine (just couldnt really get into it..bored me a little). Most F2P games I have played "Can you RUN it" has said fail..but I can play them fine on low or medium..though they only one that was still funny on low (which was the only settings it would let me run) was RIFT..but then again MAX settings for that game look a whole lot better then GW2..not saying GW2 doesn't look great because it does. But low settings on GW2 look better then low settings on RIFT.
No. It won't.
Also, the video you linked is an i7 laptop with a HD4400. It's going to have A LOT more processing power than you have.Operating System
Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit
Intel Core i3 4130 @ 3.40GHz 41 °C
Haswell 22nm Technology
8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (9-9-9-24)
Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. H81M-DS2 (SOCKET 0) 28 °C
Intel HD Graphics 4400 (Gigabyte)
2048MB ATI AMD Radeon R7 200 Series (Sapphire/PCPartner) 53 °C
Now if you'd like, what's the exact Intel HD GPU that you have?
I took what all of you said and decided not to get the game as I really don't want to spend 50 dollars on something I will not be able to play. So instead I got myself Castlevania lords of shadow 2 for my xbox. Really wish I had a computer with Xbox specs..then I can play games. Funny thing with that is..I spent the same on my computer as my freaking xbox go figure. What a waste. Next time I am not getting intergrated graphics. Is there a computer I can get around...I don't know..umm 700-800 that can play GW2 and other games? I wouldn't really want to spend 1000+on a computer. (though I don't have any source of steady income)
