ATI Radeon 9100 IGP "RS300" Pentium 4 Chipset Review - Benchmarks - Comanche 4, Jedi Knight II and Aquamark 3

Today we've got ATI's very first mainstream desktop Intel Pentium 4 based chipset on the test bed to go under the grinder in the form of the FIC P4M-RS300 motherboard. The ATI Radeon 9100 IGP is designed to compete against Intel's Springdale chipset. Read on and find out just how well it does!

Comanche 4


Comanche 4 is a helicopter simulation using the DirectX 8.1 graphics interface. It is used to test the memory and 3D subsystems of a motherboard and video processor. Any weaknesses will show up through this intensive benchmark.



Under the intensive Comanche 4 benchmark the onboard is able to produce a playable average FSP. Intel just has the lead over ATI.


Jedi Knight II


Jedi Knight II, Jedi Outcast is an OpenGL game that many have been playing of late. It has greatly improved graphics over its predecessor and it fully supports advanced shaders, as well as very high texture resolutions and effects. There is one demo included in the multi-player section that is good for benchmarking use.



In Jedi Knight using the intensive VIA Arena Outpost map at 1024x768 all the results even up. For the first time the Radeon 9100 IGP has the lead over the Intel 865PE chipset which is a great sign for competition in the industry.


Aquamark 3


Aquamark 3 is Massive Development's latest creation. Aquamark 3 is designed to run on the new DirectX 9 API's.



In the new Aquamark 3 DX9 benchmark we can see the onboard video and 9200 SE finding it hard to keep pace with the new technologies. The difference between the Intel and ATI chipsets is only around 1 FPS.
