Integrated video performance

We ran some quick benchmarks in order to compare the performance of the integrated video present on the A8-9600 to the Pentium G4600, and the Core i3-7100 from Intel. We removed the video card and ran three 3DMark benchmarks: Fire Strike, Sky Diver, and Cloud Gate.

AMD A8-9600

On Fire Strike, the A8-9600 was 58% faster than the Pentium G4600.

On the Cloud Gate, the A8-9600 was 9% slower than the Pentium G4600.

We also ran, using the integrated video, the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (A.K.A. CS: GO), which is a very popular game, launched in August 2012, using Source engine, which is DirectX 9. We benchmarked it playing in “Inferno” map, against bots, in Full HD, and image quality as “medium”.

The results below are expressed in frames per second and represent the arithmetical mean of the three collected results.
