Hello
so, when I got my new computer built, I also learned that my GPU died
Since then, I run on my iGPU, one of the best available, an Intel UHD 750
However, I'm just unable to run games with it, they always crash while loading the game
Games like Horizon Zero Dawn, that are heavily demanding, are finely loading at first, I get to the main menu, but when I start the game, it crashes DURING the initial loading screen

First, I saw a video saying that the UHD 750 is the best to have if you don't want to pay a scalper price for a gpu while waiting for the end of the gpu shortage
Secondly, I saw footages of someone playing HZD on a UHD 630 (about 18fps iirc)

My CPU is a Intel I7-11700k

If someone can help me run heavily demanding games on it, can you share advices please?

Thanks

My computer and gpu are 10 times less powerful than yours and i can run horizon zero dawn. There is definitely a problem with your system. What is your power supply?

I didn't choose it, it was the geek squad who simply recomended me to buy a new one and they installed this one, meaning they checked it was compatible with the rest

That UHD750 isn't really suited for low demanding games or very low settings, you need a better video card.

I checked both games list of them, the two games I'd like to play right now aren't on them :(

PlayStation has a streaming service as well (PS Now) if it's PlayStation games you are looking for. Can't speak to the quality of that service as I have never used it. There's Google Stadia and GeForce Now as well.

Anyway, I don't think anything good is going to come out of trying to force a modern AAA title onto an integrated GPU. It'll just be frustrating for you.

Might wanna have a look at the recently released RTX 3050, it's the most reasonably priced GPU you can get right now. Or the slightly more powerful RTX 3060/RX 6600 XT (whichever one you can find cheaper)
But I would steer clear of the RX 6500 XT.

Even if you could get every game running on the iGPU, a lot of them are going to be too slow to be playable. Sub 20 FPS is not really playable.

Maybe because the iGPU shares RAM with the CPU, it's running out of either VRAM or RAM during the loading screen and crashes. How much RAM do you have and is there anywhere to adjust how much is allocated to the iGPU (in BIOS for example)?

You can reduce VRAM usage by lowering the resolution (and lowering the graphics detail on stuff like textures and shadows), you will likely have to settle for 720p to get some games running decently or running at all on an iGPU.
