IGP Motherboard Benchmarks: DX 11 titles go bust!

While considering the Sandy Bridge/Intel H67 integrated graphics performance charts below, it's wise to remember that PCSTATS is testing with a Core i5 2500KCPU and thus the Intel HD 3000 IGP. This IGP is only DX10.1 compliant, so 3DMark11 and the other DX11 benchmarks will not run. AMD's Radeon HD 6550D graphics core in the socket FM1 A8-3850 APU is DX11 compliant.

The big question for many users is this; "if you have to rely on integrated graphics, is it better to buy the AMD A8-3850 APU + A75 motherboard, or will the Intel Sandy Bridge HD 3000 IGP + H67 chipset do the trick?"

And now onto some IGP benchmarks the Intel HD 3000 can run.

In 3DMark Vantage, the ECS H67H2-M motherboard achieves a score of 1707. Compared to AMD's powerful A8-3850 APU-based GA-A75-UD4H motherboard, ths is about half the speed as AMD's IGP. In the GPU test the H67H2-M gets 1313 vs. 3206 to the Radeon HD 6550D IGP.

Next 3DMark 06.

3DMark06 says pretty much the same thing; the Intel HD 3000 / H67 platform boosts Intel IGP graphics but is comparatively weak compared to AMD APU. ECS' H67H2-M scores 4265 while AMDs A75 platform averages ~6300!

FEAR is next.
