As a GPU, it looks like your 750m is just an underclocked 750. So it's low end but not horrible. Similar to a 460se.

The problem is you want to play at 4k. If you set your games to 1080p resolution many games will play better.

Lower the res, game away. Play with settings to get smooth framerates.

Maybe Tetris? Seriously, that was a low end mobile gpu and is now a few generations old. For sure you will have lower the resolution to 1080p, and even 720 for even mildly demanding games. If you like rpgs, kotor is a great game.Right now I am playing Divinity Original Sin which is not demanding and is a great game.

MineSweeper. Only this game can be played up to 16K

Going seriously. NO games are available at 4K with that card. At best you can play in HD resolution.

My laptop has a 720m and that can play old stuff like Splinter Cell Chaos Theory smoothly at 1080p. Sins of a Solar empire is no problem at that resolution either although it's not particularly graphically taxing.

Unfortunately, it's not. It only has 384 shaders, where the 750 has 512. It's like an 840M.

I doubt there's really anything that you can run at 4K.

What kind of system do you have with a 750m and a 4K display? Are you sure the display is 4K?

I dont think there even was such a thing as a 4K display when the 750M came out. Are you outputting from an old laptop to a 4K display? If so, maybe you should try to find a lower res display, 1080p, or even a 768p TV to hook up.

Set your game resolution to 1920x1080, things may look a tiny bit blurry, but should scale very well, and you should be able to run a whole lot more games at 1/4 the resolution.

The Dell XPS 15 9530 was available with the 750M and 4k screen.

Speaking for myself, I would still want a more powerful GPU if I was using a 4K display.

Divinity Origin Sin ran at 30fps at 4k with a GTX 980 @ 1500MHz (the game uses some kind of double buffering, so anything below 45fps gets capped at 30). The only way to get 60fps with my old rig was to run the game at medium settings. I wouldnt call it an undemanding game. You really need at least a 980Ti to run that game properly at 4K. A 750m would be a slide show.
