In these tests, we used a 690gtx that we had in the lab for the graphics tests. The Intel 4771 does perform very well for this entry-level platform.

 

These tests do put a huge load on the system, and take about eight hours to run on this system. This was the first time that an application spun the fans up to 100% on the 690gtx in the lab, which shows SPECwpc puts a heavy load on the GPU.
