Are you telling me that my i5 2500 can run BFBC2? I couldn't even think about...

 

Indeed, percentages don't mean much. I'd like some framerates, resolutions etc, too. My GTX560Ti can run BFBC2 maxed out at 1920x1080 with constant 60 FPS... Can GMA catch at least 20? Not to mention StarCraft II... Full everything with ease.

 

Anyway, I'm talking mostly to "Slurpy" who commented about those who look for perfomance and buying dedicated card. I still think it's one way to do so. This does not negate the fact that none gonna benefit from that increased perfomance.

I think Intel forgot that 37% of zero is still zero.

Too bad the people who are concerned about performance increase are the ones who opt for a dedicated graphics card.

I'd like to see frame rates.  Percentage improvement alone doesn't mean anything.  A 37% improvement in Starcraft 2 doesn't mean anything if the original frame rate was something abysmal like 10 fps ;)

 

Also, Resident Evil 5?  Is that really what PC benchmarks have come to?
