How does ZWIFT handle integrated graphics [March 27, 2024]

Hi all,

im planning to buy a new PC/Laptop. As i read ZWIFT doesnt have high requirements to hardware.

I read that ZWIFT automatically set gaphics on 720p BASIC Settings when using an integrated CPU graphics. In 2024 the Radeon 780M or Intel ARC GPU are quite strong. Almost as good as GTX 1660 or RTX 1050. So acutally nobody needs a dedicated GPU anymore for ultra settings.

But if ZWIFT still puts integrated graphics into Basic Settings it would be a shame. Anyone knows it?

Radeon 780M is Basic profile - Zwiftalizer 2.0

Intel Iris Xe - also Basic profile

A dedicated GPU is still needed to get Ultra.
