HD i7 2617M Game Requirement Analysis
HD i7 2617M is a specific version of the Intel HD 3000 Graphics that comes with the CPU 'Core i7-2617M 2-Core 1.5GHz'. It uses the CPU's Level 3 Cache (up to 4 MB, in this case) + part of the RAM installed on the system up to a maximum of approximately 1.7GB for Vista/7 and 1 GB for XP. The Memory controller supports DDR3-1066 and DDR3-1333 and the Turbo Boost technology of the processor can over-clock the graphics card clock from 350MHz to 950MHz.
Nevertheless it's still an integrated GPU with shared memory so its performance is very limited. Still, demanding games like Crysis 2 should still run on the lowest settings.
