Video: Gaming at 2560 x 1440 on the Toshiba Kirabook

Yesterday I outlined all the good and all the bad about Toshiba's premium Kirabook laptop, of which the standout feature is undoubtedly the 2560 x 1440 WQHD display. Now the machine isn't designed for gaming whatsoever - its eyes look towards the business end of the spectrum - but I wanted to see how good the Ultrabook is anyway at doing some heavy 3D work at native resolutions.

So, I fired up three games - Borderlands 2, Sleeping Dogs and Tomb Raider - at the Kirabook's native resolution on the lowest possible settings, to see how the Intel HD Graphics 4000 chip in the Intel 'Ivy Bridge' third-generation Core processor could handle it. Unsurprisingly the device is very slow; check the video above to see just how slow games run on a weak GPU having to do far too much work.
