How do Intel graphics chipsets compare to dedicated graphics cards for 3D performance

Does the Intel graphics chipset handle 3D well, or does it let the processor do the 3D job instead?

On-board graphics acceleration is always going to be outperformed by dedicated hardware. The main reason is that the dedicated GPU will have its own memory and not have to share main memory with the CPU. The GPU will generally be faster as well.
