EPIC FAIL.

What’s Intel aiming for? According to the slide, their IGP will be targeted at games such as World of Warcraft, Battlefield Heroes, The Sims 2, Peggle, Bejeweled, and Diner Dash. Each level targeted constitutes either “a broad user community” or the “fastest growing PC games segment”. Roughly translated: the places where numbers favor Intel’s venture being successful

Sure they can match performance of a GT 210 but that's nothing.

Circumstances forced me to go inactive back in 2014. I guess I'm back for 2016, but won't be active much! Cheers!

We all know very well how much the Intel IGPs suck... there's no need to read yet another article on the matter.

Intel "great PC gaming experience" for mainstream games = 800x600, lowest setting.... assuming there are no driver issues.

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers

Anybody else seen the numbers of the H55 platform versus discrete entry level cards from AMD/nVidia? The H55 and accompanying processor really do well.

My sister enjoys her Sims game at desktop resolution on a HD3300 with 128 sideport memory, so I think Intel is on to something (finally)

Well, on a 8400GS I was able to run WoW at 25 FPS - everything at low, and at 1680x1050, so it's not as bad as you say, though still nothing to brag about.

When asking for help: state the goal, not the step.

Anything can be a success if the bar is set low enough. Congrats Intel!

Casual Games - Farmville

Imagine all the power they must put in those chips to run those demanding facebook games.

Ask yourself: If someone broke into your house and upgraded your computer with it,
how long would it be before you noticed the difference?

WoW can run on a GeForce 2 (now 9 years old?), I'd hope you could run it well on any 8 series. Although I guess you couldn't run through any of the expansions on the original minimum spec machine Blizzard specified for WoW.
