Intel HD Graphics, what is what

Intel HD Graphics, what is what

I heard that this thing can improve graphics and performance in gaming world.
So, yes I want to know if I can run new games smoothly.
Funny thing is that I searched everything about Intel HD Graphics and I couldn't found anything significant. I found that i3-2100 uses Intel HD Graphics 2000, or that isn't totally true?

I have Intel's i3-2100 3.10GHz, 4 Gigs of RAM, H61M-P23 (B3) mobo, and nVidia GeForce 9500GT graphic card.
9500GT is very low card for games, you know, so I was wondering if Intel HD Graphics can do something on this issue.

Should I install something, set up something or what.

Thanks in advance!

My current understanding is that Intel HD Graphics is mainly optimized for HD video decoding, not for games at all. Even latest HD4000. For games is better to use external graphics card.
