  • Intel Inf driver version: 5.00.1012
  • ATI video driver version: 7.88 (6.14.10.6343)

Benchmarking software used

We adopted a 3% error margin. So, performance differences below 3% cannot be considered meaningful. In other words, products where the performance difference is below 3% must be considered as having similar performance.
