3DMark05 is very heavy on videocards and that's why the overall score with the onboard Radeon Xpress 200 is so low. Still it's impressive that the integrated videocard can run the benchmark at all. With a stand alone PCI Express Radeon X800 XT the numbers are respectable enough. The MSI RS480M2-IL should be a good gaming platform when teamed up with the right video card.

Comanche 4 Source: Novalogic

The Comanche 4 benchmark demo is a unique test as it represents a real-world gaming experience. It contains the single player "Eagle's Talon" mission from the game as well as a detailed cinematic. This DirectX 8.1 benchmark demo will measure your system's performance in the standard frames per second format. The benchmark was run with audio disabled.

MSI RS480M2-IL (RS480 200/400 X800 XT) 77.92

Comanche 4 numbers are on the low side, but close enough to the other platforms that a gamer would not notice. The integrated video does quite well here relatively speaking.
