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.

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.
