In this article are these first Intel benchmarks for the Clarkdale graphics processor as we see how its open-source Intel driver stack compares to that of AMD with their open-source Radeon stack up through the Radeon R series. The game loses much of its visual appeal at the settings you need to run at in order to be playable on integrated graphics, especially on a larger screen. CPU clock rate 2. Benchmarking was done through the Phoronix Test Suite. Our GX platform had MB of on-board memory to drive performance even higher.

Our GX platform had MB of on-board memory to drive performance even higher.
All integrated GPUs regardless of vendor, pretty much suck. If Intel can manage a win here, it’ll be a convincing one. The Core i3s will be appreciably slower, most likely at or below the performance of the GX.
The Clarkdale Review: Intel’s Core i5 661, i3 540 & i3 530
The hardware used for this testing was the Intel Core i3 clocked at 2. The Xeon Lx line has a lower clock frequency and thermal design power, and supports unbuffered ECC memory in addition to the features of the Core ixx, but has support for the integrated graphics disabled. Last week we delivered our first Linux benchmarks of Intel’s Core i3 Clarkdale processor with a variety of computational tests through the Phoronix Test Suite. Retrieved from ” https: However, we are running at the “Good” setting as opposed to bare minimum detail settings:.
Supported Operating Systems for Intel® Graphics Products
In this case I ran Batman at x with all quality options set to low.
If you’re building something with integrated graphics, you want it to be a Clarkdale. Tim Sweeney once told me that a good looking game is half engine, half art.
Intel® HD Graphics and Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator Drivers
We compared the performance of the Intel Clarkdale graphics using the inteo system to the following ATI graphics cards with their open-source stack: When watching a movie the AMD system is indistinguishable from our Clarkdale test bed.
This is a huge improvement over G45, but definitely not what I would consider playable.
To test power consumption under load I fired up a p x video using Media Player Classic Home Cinema and measured total system power consumption:. Intel integrated graphics is now just called Intel HD Graphics. Intel took a big step forward to the point where it is no longer the laughing stock of the graphics industry.
Discontinued BCD oriented 4-bit Intel has taken a significant grxphics forward with its integrated graphics. It’s still much more power efficient ggaphics the equivalent from AMD. To test power consumption under load I fired up a p x video using Media Player Classic Home Cinema and measured total system power consumption: Performance is respectable from the new Intel HD graphics. While the Core i3 packs a nice performance punch, that is not all it has to offer.
Averaging 15 fps on grwphics fastest Clarkdale, the minimum frame rates dropped as low as 3. This support is not perfect as it was clarkdals to run into GPU crashes as mentioned in the aforementioned postingbut we have found out this issue is not specific to Clarkdale but is also occurring for some others using an updated Intel Linux driver stack.
Views Read Edit View history. AMD is going to be shipping its 8-series chipsets later in the year and perhaps that will change things. The game loses much of its visual appeal at the settings you need to run at in order to be playable on integrated graphics, especially on a larger screen.
