It's not good, the laptop I use has this GPU and it's not powerful enough to run games at a consistent 60fps without lowering the settings to Medium or less. I think more recent Integrated Graphics would run about the same, which is very bad, to say the least.

I had my laptop for three years and this card was amazing for the price. I could even play Arma 3 at acceptable frames. Beast of a card back in the day.

Best budget card back then in 2016/2017. The 4gb version can still run any game until 2017, even the newer ones on medium graphics. Best price-performance card back in the day. I did never regret buying it.

Runs Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2 60 fps medium to high settings

Can run any game at 1080p medium/high with 60fps, more demanding titles will run at 40 or 50 fps if you don't lower the settings a bit. Great price performance.

it's slow, i have to play fallout 4 on low. i'm so glad i'm upgrading because this poop can barely run crap

Decent performance per watt while staying relatively cool. Unfortunately will struggle with certain games at 1080p at much higher than Medium settings (depending on the game) you will need to adjust your in-game settings down to achieve a balance between a steady 60fps and eye candy.
