HD Graphics Desktop (Sandy Bridge) compatibility review

Overall, the Intel HD Graphics Desktop (Sandy Bridge) has poor performance. This is not altogether surprising, as it is an integrated GPU. If a robust graphical system is desired, a dedicated graphics card upgrade is a must, though you can get away with an integrated GPU for less intensive applications and games. This integrated GPU is now over 9 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. This integrated GPU will be dwarfed in performance by its modern counterparts, and will likely have very little driver support from Intel.

With an effective SPU count of 8, the Intel HD Graphics Desktop (Sandy Bridge) processes shading and special graphical effects fairly poorly. The GPU is not too power-hungry at 65 Watts, however.
