Integrated graphics performance — continued
We should point out that, unlike some of these games, one can play StarCraft II reasonably well on an Intel IGP, just not at these image quality settings.
Interestingly enough, when both systems are using the discrete Radeon HD 6670, the A8-3850's CPU performance becomes an issue. The Core i3-2100 cranks out higher average and minimum frame rates.
I take it you're getting the picture by now. The A8-3850's integrated graphics processor is two to three times faster than the Intel HD 3000 IGP. Meanwhile, the discrete Radeon HD 6670 is substantially quicker than any integrated solution.
