ic, but I don't exactly know how SB GPU compare with which level of discreet GPU la. 5 times sounds a lot but if the game running on SB GPU only do 1 fps @ high details, then...
Actually I think SB GPU's direct competitor is AMD's APUs, not discrete GPUs. So Ivy Bridge will be fighting Trinity, while Haswell will be up against Kaveri.
Funny enough, either my Google-fu sucks or nobody is interested in making a direct comparison of HD 3000 vs 6520G. This is the first result on Google:
AMD Radeon HD 6520G vs Intel HD Graphics 3000 | Compare Processors
Intel Core-i7 2600K
ASRock Z68 Extreme 4
Sapphire Radeon 7850
8GB G-Skill Sniper SE + 8GB Kingston Value RAM
Corsair F120 SSD
Pioneer 24x DVD±RW
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
