Can't use Hardware Acceleration on my laptop

Hello guys, can you please help me out?

 

My HP laptop cannot detect "Hardware Acceleration" and only "Vectorial Engine" option is available as 3D engine. Below is the screenshot of the same for your reference. The problem here is that the surface finishes are not accurate. Otherwise AC25 is running. Will Intel graphics on my laptop support AC25?

 

HP Envy Touchsmart 15 notebook specs:

Intel Core i5 3230M @2.60 GHz

8GB Ram

Intel HD Graphics 4000

1TB Internal Hardisk

Your CPU is very old, it was introduced in 2013, which was 9 Intel CPU generations ago. The problem is that it support OpenGL 4.0 only:

However, Archicad 25 requires a graphics card that support OpenGL 4.5:

This is why you do not have Hardware Acceleration available because it requires a higher OpenGL version than the one your CPU supports.

Apparently, Archicad 24 needs only a graphics card that support OpenGL 4.0, which your CPU is capable of:

So you should have Hardware Acceleration available in Archicad 24, but not in Archicad 25.
