Call of Juarez posts better results than we had anticipated from the AMD A75 platform... 56FPS at 1024 is playable. The frames drop pretty significantly at 1600x1200 however... the AMD Radeon HD 6550D demonstrates most certainly that is essentially a mainstream videocard integrated on a quad core processor.

What was true for Call of Juarez is true for Crysis. The AMD Fusion platforms' AMD Radeon HD 6550D integrated graphics are able to squeeze out 20.35FPS at 1024x768 - hardly anything to get excited about, but more than twice as quick as the Intel solution can muster. Bumping up the resolution to 1600x1200 clearly reminds us that integrated graphics can only accomplish so much, at some point it's time to upgrade to a discrete videocard.

FEAR is a DX9 title that really demonstrates just how far IGPs have come in the last couple years. What used to be nearly impossible for any IGP to render at 1600x1200 can now be tackled with ease. The AMD A75 based Biostar TA75M+ system wins with a score of 56FPS.

Let's wrap up this review with some quick power draw figures and sum up everything we've seen from Biostar's TA75M+ AMD A75-based motherboard, right after the jump.
