Graphics built-in to the CPU

Intel HD Graphics is next-generation graphics technology in 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors. Intel HD Graphics integrates high-performance graphics and media processing right on the processor, putting the two key gaming components – CPU processing and graphics – together on a single chip. Two versions of Intel HD Graphics are available: Intel® HD Graphics 3000 and Intel® HD Graphics 2000.


How it Works

Intel HD Graphics take advantage of graphics being integrated into the processor, thus significantly boosting performance, while eliminating the need for separate hardware and the design and performance challenges that accompany them. The graphics engine includes more, redesigned execution units (EUs) and enhanced 3D functionality.

Intel HD Graphics includes these innovative features and benefits:

  • Accelerated graphics processing takes advantage of shared last-level cache between the processor and graphics.
  • Intel® 32nm process technology throughout, delivers higher performance and better energy efficiency.
  • Faster 3D rendering and more complex shading create more responsive and realistic 3D gaming.
  • Intel HD Graphics 3000 delivers immersive and casual mainstream gaming capabilities with entry-level discrete graphics card performance without an additional graphics card or chip.
  • Intel HD Graphics 2000 delivers casual mainstream gaming capabilities without an additional graphics card or chip.
