HD Graphics


The first word that comes to mind when most enthusiasts hear the phrase "integrated graphics" usually isn't pleasant, and rightfully so. Simply put, this is not a gaming-grade solution; it wasn't designed to be. What Intel claims the GPU core can do, however, is provide the consumer with a seamless HD video experience (including dual Blu-ray streams), play "mainstream games" such as World of Warcraft and the Sims series and provide a high quality Windows 7 experience complete with Aero theme support.


So it's clear that we are dealing with a 100% mainstream processor. Let's see what Intel has done to make this dual core processor competitive in today's multi core market.
