    I made a comment about this on another post but I figured it deserved it's own thread. Anyone have any idea how well this game might run on iris 540 integrated graphics? I'll be getting an XPS 13 in a few days and I wanna know if I can play it out and about?

    Furthermore, what are your experiences with performance in nightly and what hardware are you running? I haven't played nightly for a month or two but it runs really well on my FX 6300 and GTX 970 SSC build.

    I wouldn't entirely hold my breath on that. Intel has a notorious reputation for having, erm, substandard hardware specifications for their integrated graphics, and while it does run okay with a solid 60fps most of the while, even with my Geforce GTX 950, turning on the inspect mode in the nightly outpost, or using the Ore/Cave Detectors, causes the framerate to drop to around 30, so I cannot really see a not-so-great graphics card handling that well at all.

    My previous card, which was a much earlier GT model, just plain sobbed whenever I turned on inspect mode with more than a couple objects on screen. That was a complete disaster.

    Ah, that's a shame. :s Still, that's one less game to distract me from study/writing!
