Biostar TH67XE Intel H67 Express Motherboard Review

Biostar TH67XE Intel H67 Express Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The level of integration present here, makes the Biostar TH67XE naturally very quiet too - without a videocard, the only fans in the system need be a CPU heatsink and power supply.

FEAR is a DX9 title that demonstrates just how far IGPs have come. The Biostar TH67XE test system scores 36 FPS here, compared to AMD's A8-3850 Fusion APU which wins hands down with a 57FPS result.

In the final round of IGP benchmarks we have Call of Juarez and Crysis....

Call of Juarez is a tough DX10 title for IGPs. The Biostar TH67XE motherboard's cores 27.3 FPS @ 1024x768, 6.1FPS @ 1600x1200. Moral of this story, buy a mainstream discreet graphics card if you're a serious gamer.

Now for Crysis, on IGP!

In Crysis the Biostar TH67XE motherboard and its HD 3000 Sandy Bridge integrated graphics achieve 7.2 FPS. The AMD A8-3850 APU platform on the other hand nets 14.9FPS at best. Both results are too slow to actually play this game, at these resolutions.

In PCMark Vantage we can see how the CPU-based IGP impacts (or doesn't impact) office application performance. That's up next, then the conclusions.
