You have a 2nd generation Core processor. Intel does not (and never did) support the use of the graphics engine in 2nd generation processors with Windows 10. Specifically, Intel did not provide Windows 10 graphics drivers drivers for 2nd generation and older processors (nor for chipset-based graphics solutions). You are running using Microsoft's compatibility driver. As you have seen, this driver has poor performance and the support for OpenGL, DirectX, etc. is very out of date.

If this is a desktop, you can add a graphics card that is supported with Windows 10 and use it instead. If this is a laptop, however, there really is no solution other than the purchase of a much newer system.

Sorry, reality bites,
