Lightbulb Sandy Beach vs. Sandy Bridge

Sandy Beach makes more sense to me than Sandy Bridge.

Who has one and how does its integrated GPU perform under 3D gaming?

Still low-end, but HD Graphics 3000 is an improvement for Intel.

But based on Intel's history of increasing 3D performance, they may catch up with NVIDIA in, uhh, let's say, about 25 years or so.

Very interested in 3D graphics performance vs. AMD/ATI's Fusion though.

I'll report back Sunday.

Not going H67 though...so yeah I guess I really can't report on the GPU performance.
