The Gaming Performance Showdown
In our gaming tests the 790GX is the clear winner, which is not a surprise given its clock speed advantage over the 780G. The GeForce 8200/8300 hold their own in Enemy Territory: Quake Wars due to a better OpenGL implementation in their drivers. Race Driver GRID heavily favors the AMD solutions. We have also noticed this pattern in discrete GPU card testing. Age of Conan responds well to the 790GX mGPU core clock speeds and Sideport memory running at 1333MHz. Without SP enabled, the Gigabyte board scores 17.9 FPS in this game. The AMD solutions also hold an advantage in the Cyrsis test where GPU speed and shader throughput are important. Finally, in Spore, we see Intel providing something close to a decent score compared to the other solutions.
