FUD Zilla writes Intel's Sandy Bridge processors will have a graphics core clocked at 850MHz, and that some models have a Turbo Mode that take the graphcis to 1350MHz.
The interesting part is that monolithic graphics core, that is now a part of CPU and not on a separate die as with Westmere, now works at 850MHz.
This is 117MHz faster than the current Westmere 32nm core with 45nm graphics. This is not all as the graphics core can overclock with the help of Turbo 2 all the way to 1350MHz. Intel's so called HD graphics now promises to get some significant performance for immersive mainstream gaming on a broad range of mainstream titles, but we don’t know how much faster can it be from the current generation.
