I just received a refurbished ThinkPad T410s with Intel HD Graphics (i5-520M), which I would like to use with Rhino.
However, I am worried about a March 02 2011 wiki entry by John Brock:
I manually process a lot of Rhino crash reports. These cards are total junk for OpenGL based applications like Rhino. AVOID THEM! Lots of crashes even with relatively simple commands like PictureFrame. Be aware that many laptop makers are using these. AVOID THEM!
What problems are to be expected with the Intel HD Graphics? Have drivers since improved? Are there any tests that I can run?
My current system is a ThinkPad T41 with ATI Mobility Radeon 9000. It’s not the fastest setup, but at least Rhino 3 and 5 run perfectly stable.
