Hi! :hello: 

Ok I don't mean to sound like a total noob, but my question is regarding a news article I read on a local IT magazine(I'm from South Sri Lanka).
According to it,
"......Sandy Bridge Processors due to be released in 2011,....... contain high Quality Integrated Graphics which can provide Mainstream Graphical performance......" :heink:  (I think this is not Possible! Then ATI & nVidia will be out of business!!)

My question is:

Is this True??? Will Sandy Bridge really out perform or at least measure up to the Mainstream Gaming VGAs developed by nVidia and ATI/AMD??? A detailed answer would be appreciated :)

sandy bridge will be competing against integrated graphic chips from ATI & Nvidia. It will not be competing against modern dedicated video cards. what you read was a fluff peace about Intel with marketing talk. mainstream is another word for "the people who want to purchase the cheapest PC/laptop". in order to compete in that market, graphics are the first thing that get cut.
