Pentium Dual Core 2030M 2.5GHz Game Requirement Analysis

Pentium Dual Core 2030M 2.5GHz is a Dual-Core processor for budget oriented - entry - level laptops, based on the 22nm, Ivy Bridge micro-architecture.
Though based on the Ivy Bridge architecture, important features such as Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading are deactivated. It offers 2MB of L3 Cache and integrated graphics called Intel HD 2500, clocked at 650 MHz (up to 1100 MHz in Turbo Mode). The Memory Controller supports DDR3-1333 and DDR3-1600 memory types. It should consume no more than 35 Watt.
Its performance is quite average and behind entry-level i7 laptop processors and so it's best paired with entry and middle class level GPUs.
