Intel Core i5 3470S 

Released June, 2012
  • 2.9 GHz
  • Quad core
7.5 Out of 10

With upgrades in DirectX support and OpenGL support though this iteration should be more compatible, and at least modestly better at gaming, with the architectural changes made to the GPU portion.

At 21.5 fps performance is marginal at best, and when you crank up the resolution to 1680 x 1050 the HD 2500 simply falls apart.
