3DMark06 Professional

3DMark06 measures Shader 3.0 (i.e., DirectX 9.0c) performance. We ran this software under its default configuration. For this test we included the result achieved by a 64-bit Sapphire HD 3450 card installed in the motherboard PCI Express x16 slot while disabling the motherboard’s on-board video, so we can observe the performance of a very low-end video card compared to the on-board video of the reviewed motherboard.

The integrated video provided by the GeForce 7025 chipset is disapointing, as you can see. The performance of the AMD 880G chipset is 388% higher, for example. A very low-end 64-bit Radeon HD 3450 achieved a performance 400% higher.
