3DMark05 is now the second latest version in the popular 3DMark "Gamers Benchmark" series. It includes a complete set of DX9 benchmarks which tests Shader Model 2.0 and above.

It is totally clear that the onboard graphics is not going to be a gamers delight - however, when running Windows and playing DVD's this surely will be more than enough power with the onboard, if you prefer a bit more spice, you can see the discrete graphics system works great.

 

The good news is that the GeForce 6150 Northbridge supports DX9 with Shader Model 3.0 and that means that you'll be able to use the onboard graphics of the ASUS M2NPV-VM to run the fancy Windows Vista Aero interface.
