onboard graphics in those Core-I* things is in the CPU chip, *not* the 
chipset.   the chipset provides the graphics output path only.  The 
graphics is in the CPU chip because the memory controller is also in the 
CPU chip.

I believe it uses the IGDNG driver, not i810 or whatever.   I have no 
idea how well CentOS supports this, you might have better luck on that 
laptop with Fedora Latest.
