Hell no. In all the years Intel has been making cpus and gfx processors, they still cannot manage to put together basic hardware that makes games possible. They basically make it so you can have basic operation of your pc without the need for a gfx card. If you want the good stuff you need a radeon or geforce card. I will give them credit, their newer IGP are not nearly as bad as the old stuff, but they lack power harshly. The avrg gfx card should have like, 600+ processing units I think? My buddy has series 4 in his laptop and it has, 8. YES, 8. Not to mention its clock is down right slow. Not having dedicated ram makes it even slower. Its sad, because they can make a freaking amazing CPU, but not a basic GPU? And I know people will rage me saying the focus on CPUs, but seriously, with the tech they have a basic hardware GPU should not be hard to do. I mean even Nvidia and ATI graphics chips are decent. Sure most are not good because of a lack of dedicated memory on the motherboard, but they still have basic shading hardware and a good GPU.

will not help in any way as it is not physical memory but virtualized memory (sort of like a pagefile for video),

The "notebookcheck" chronicle is pretty interresting to read...that's mean Intel have locked to 533Mzh instead of the 1066Mhz on Ram...I've got DDR3 supposed being 1066Mhz but they clock at 533Mhz...I was suprised first and I thought changing the pair of 2 x 2gigs ram dual channel to see if there was a way to make it faster, but looks pointless now! The only thing is to change to 2 x 4 gigs ram now...but that another story!

Ram runs double. I do not think intel locks it.

Here a screenshot:
Looks mine are the DDR3, PC3-8500F locked max at 533MHz both of them...I really thought changing as i'm unsure what's really means this. Got the Intel chipset GS45 and sometimes it named GM45.

Well, i don't think changing these Cas Latency 7 Ram sticks 204 pins will help me much those days....
