Blackberry 10 Dev Alpha Simulator smooth with Intel HD Graphics 4000?

Hi everyone!

I'm willing to develop apps for Bb 10 with the BB10 Dev Alpha Simulator. A friend is going to give me his computer, which has an Intel HD Graphics 4000 graphics card (CPU intel i7 at 2.3GHz, 4GB Memory), but the requirements for the simulator is asking NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT or higher. From what I understand, the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT is clearly better than the HD Graphics 4000...The question is...¿how much am I going to be affected (slow performance, etc) by using this graphics card instead of NVIDIA GeForce 8800 while running the virtual machine for the BB10? Is it going to be possible to develop apps with this computer smoothly?


Thanks in advance Smiley Happy
