DX10 Motherboard IGP Benchmarks: Call of Juarez, Crysis

Call of Juarez

Source: Techland

While Call of Juarez pulls off all the classic FPS mechanisms with aplomb, it also features interesting variations that give it the air and feel of a true Western movie. The player has the genuine impression of being a pistol-packing hero in an age when armed confrontation was the daily grind for many adventurers. The Developers have incorporated a classic shooting system as well as two extra game modes.

The DX10 game Call of Juarez isn't playable on any of the integrated graphics, and the Intel G45 Express chipset fairs particularly slow against the HD3300-based AMD 790GX which is equipped with onboard memory. It's not a fair fight by any means. Intel points this out about AMD's 790GX at every opportunity.

Crysis 1.2

Source: Electronic Arts

Crysis is a science fiction first-person shooter developed by Crytek. Crysis uses Microsoft's new API, DirectX 10 for graphics rendering, and includes the new engine—the CryEngine 2—that is the successor to Far Cry's CryEngine. CryEngine 2 is among the first engines to use the DirectX 10 framework of Windows Vista, but can also run using DirectX 9, both on Vista and Windows XP.

Crysis also remains unplayable on the Asus P5Q-EM's integrated X4500HD graphics. There is a huge performance decrease at 1024 X 768 resolution when the P5Q-EM is compared to the Intel DG45ID motherboard, which is based on the same chipset. Most likely this is due to driver issues, rather than a lack of speed.
