Intel HD Graphics 2500 technical specs and benchmarks

Intel HD Graphics 2500

Summary

Intel started HD Graphics 2500 sales 1 April 2012. This is a Ivy Bridge architecture notebook card based on 22 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 1.26 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro P6000.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
