ATI Radeon 9100 IGP 'RS300' Chipset Preview

ATI Radeon 9100 IGP 'RS300' Chipset Preview  - PCSTATS
Abstract: While its first generation was somewhat uninspiring, the new 'RS300' Radeon 9100 IGP promises to offer something more - at least to prospective Pentium 4 owners.

Benchmarks: PCMark2002, 3DMark2001

PCMark can be used on desktop PC's, Laptops and even Workstations and tests everyday from home to office usage. PCMark specifically stresses the CPU, memory subsystem, graphics subsystem, hard drives, WindowsXP GUI (if WinXP is used), video performance and even laptop batteries.

PCMark2002 Benchmark Results
Processor PCMarks Ranking
1. Intel 865G (DDR333) 7443
2. ATI RADEON 9100 IGP (DDR333) 7396
3. ATI RADEON 9100 IGP (DDR400) 7482


1. Intel 865G (DDR333) 6516
2. ATI RADEON 9100 IGP (DDR333) 5497
3. ATI RADEON 9100 IGP (DDR400) 6325

Both ATI and Intel platforms achieve comparable scores in the CPU benchmark - to be expected considering they are both utilizing 3.06GHz processors. There is a discrepancy in the memory test, though. But as mentioned, ATI claims to be working on the RADEON's DDR memory controller, so there is a chance that performance could improve between now and when 9100 IGP products start shipping.

By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001 SE has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using Ipion real-time physics. Higher 3DMark scores denote better performance.

3. ATI RADEON 9100 IGP (DDR400) 5623

ATI self-reportedly hasn't finished optimizing the RADEON 9100 IGP's memory controller yet, but the 3D core itself should be in its final trim. 3D Mark 2001 SE is an older synthetic metric, which used to stress graphics performance more than any other application. However, it has recently been overshadowed by Futuremark's latest creation 3D Mark 2003. Even still, 3D Mark 2001 SE illustrates two points: first, the RADEON 9100 IGP is vastly superior to Intel's Extreme Graphics 2 solution, stable as it may be and second, augmenting memory bandwidth with DDR400 yields an 18 percent improvement as compared to DDR333 running synchronously to the Pentium 4 front side bus.
