PCMark is a multipurpose benchmark, suited for benchmarking all kinds of PCs, from laptops to workstations, as well as across multiple Windows operating systems. This easy-to-use benchmark makes professional strength benchmarking software available even to novice users. PCMark consists of a series of tests that represent common tasks in home and office programs. PCMark also covers many additional areas outside the scope of other MadOnion.com benchmarks.

 

 

 

Again with the onboard graphics enabled, we see a memory performance hit as well as a huge decrease in overall graphics performance. This due to the lower power of the integrated graphics core compared to the external Radeon solution. With the Radeon plugged in, both boards perform identical. It should be noted that this is Intel's first chipset to fully support DX9 functions for Vista.
