One of the surprises of Intel's Core i5, Arrandale-based HD graphics solution is the fact that it can play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and still achieve the 30 FPS performance mark.

However, we should point out that the resolution was not that great as the game was running at 640x480, but it still appeared to run smoothly with good quality. Naturally, most of the eye candy was disabled but it was still impressive to see one of the latest games running on Intel’s new 32nm dual-core with 45nm graphics sitting on the same socket.

Intel has claimed that the graphics in its Arrandale platform are roughly 2X better than they used to be with the previous generation and that top games should be running on Intel’s graphics. All in all, we would be more than happy to test this bold claim.
