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: 3DMark03, UT2003

3DMark03 Source: FutureMark

This new accurate diagnostic tool, designed for DirectX9.0, provides you with all the information you need to make informed hardware assessments. Havok Total real-time physics library from Havok - these routines are used to accurately model the movements of objects due to forces, etc. FMOD sound library from Firelight Technologies - these are used for the various sound effects and routines used in the tests. Graphics adapter analysis software from Powerstrip of Entech Taiwan - this is used to correctly determine the speeds of the graphics processing and video memory chips, plus supply additional hardware information. Higher 3DMark03 scores denote better performance.

2. ATI RADEON 9100 IGP (DDR333) 691
3. ATI RADEON 9100 IGP (DDR400) 839

3DMark03 incorporates support for DirectX 9.0a in another synthetic benchmark from Futuremark. While its use has been wrought with controversy, 3DMark03 delivers a snapshot at the difference between Intel's Extreme Graphics 2 solution that lacks DX8 or DX9 support (and consequently won't run applications such as Comanche 4) and ATI's RADEON 9100 IGP. The IGP's integrated core is 86 percent faster than Intel's offering, in part because it is able to finish Game Tests Two and Three. And again, the 9100 picks up 18 percent by moving to DDR400 memory.

Unreal Tournament 2003

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to get the most out of the game.

3. ATI RADEON 9100 IGP (DDR400)


Unreal Tournament is a fairly demanding application, and its built-in benchmarking test provides a little insight as to the playability of the competing integrated graphics products. The Flyby demo is a good indicator of graphics performance, but it doesn't convey a realistic view of the gaming experience. So consider that Intel's Extreme Graphics 2 part, with 16MB of graphics memory (the most available) runs at 13.8 frames per second. The RADEON, equipped with 128MB (again, the maximum configurable), delivers 38 frames at 1024x768. Neither card is going to satiate a gaming enthusiast, but at the very least, ATI's RADEON 9100 IGP will deliver mainstream gaming performance to the Pentium 4 market.
