This chart means little to nothing for nearly all who know the business because we know the intel IGP is a joke and Intel stuck it on models that obviously didn't need it to trump up their stats for crap like this really. I see little to no reason a 2500K needs an Intel HD3000, and the ones with HD2000 are even worse. They barely are good enough for the average Joe, which is the only people who would look at this chart and be like "Wow, Intel must be stepping up their game" lol. But then again, the Average Joe wouldn't know what an "IGP" is even... so he wouldn't know what the chart means...
Meaningless chart is meaningless.
Llano is not that attractive to many users, since a SB i3 + a GT 525M (or 540M) comes at a same price (as a Llano A6 or A8), and offers better performance in both ways. To I agree that my prediction remains to be verified, since Llano came out.
Also, Intel is stepping up their game, but they have a long way to go. Just compare the SB IGPU to the previous generation and there is a lot of improvement. The card is definitely enough in every facet for an average Joe, casual gamer, and business users, but it is not definitely for gamers.
You need to understand that. Intel has never marketed its iGPU as an option for gamers, yes it can run a lot of games - but not very well... but is it enough for the average computer user; yes. Most gamers use consoles in any case. And this is coming from a PC gamer who owns no consoles.
