None of the integrated motherboards passed a single instance of 3DMark Vantage on the default Performance scale, hence all the zero's for the IGP tests.

Sierra FEAR 1.08

Source: Sierra

FEAR is Sierra's latest first person shooter which relies heavily on DirectX 9 features. With its "Soft Shadows" feature enabled, even the fastest videocards run at a crawl, FEAR is definitely the new benchmark for future FPS games to follow.

The integrated Radeon HD 3300 graphics card performs relatively well in FEAR with a score of 13FPS, although it's not actually playable. The Intel G45 IGP manages only 9 to 11 FPS by comparison... clearly IGPs have long way to go before they replace videocards.
