MSI 915G Combo

3. Performance

03 - Performance

For testing this motherboard we used 3 benchmarks. One concerning overall performance (PCMark04) and two for checking out the integrated graphics processor (Aquamark03, 3DMark01). The later two are known for their dependence on the CPU processor so there's no fear of us concentrating solely on the GPU.

PCMark04

PCMark04 is an application-based benchmark and a premium tool for measuring overall PC performance. It uses portions of real applications instead of including very large applications or using specifically created code. This allows PCMark04 to be a smaller installation as well as to report very accurate results.

3DMark01

The 915G's performance was a little better that the performance we got from the ATI IGP9100 and not so far away from the X300 which is quite interesting.

Aquamark03

Aquamark03 is a much more serious benchmark than Futuremark's outdated 3DMark01. That's why the difference between the Intel 915G and a "real" VGA card is more obvious. In addition to that, Intel's chipset couldn't keep up with the IGP9100 and yielded the very low score of 8727.
