Nvidia response to Intel?s MCP79 claims

Written by Fuad Abazovic

Intel was not completely honest


Following Intel's anti-MCP79 (Geforce 9400M) presentation, we decided to ask Nvidia for an opinion and we got one. Nvidia mostly agrees with our comments in the story but at the same time, it underlines that the comparison that Intel did was quite misleading.

They are comparing GM45 with dual channel memory vs. MCP79MVL with single channel memory, and GM45, as Intel's top SKU, is compared to Nvidia's entry level MCP79 SKU. Furthermore Nvidia believes that Intel chose entry notebooks that were not optimised for power management in its presentation. How convenient and truthful.

According to Nvidia's test in 3Dmark 2006 1280x1024, GM45 scores around 1000 points, while the mainstream MCP79MVL scores approximately 1200 and MCP79MX scores over 2000.

In 3Dmark Vantage GM45 is at around 800 level, MCP79MVL scores 1700 while MCP79MX scores around 3200+.

In both PC marks Vantage and 2005 Nvidia clearly wins benchmarks and when it comes to battery life, Intel offers a bit better battery life but you can expect less than 10 percent better battery life where Intel can work approximately 3.20 minutes and Nvidia 3.10 minutes on the same CPU, monitor and configuration.

Now for the fun part, in the HQV HD video benchmark GM45 scores 20 points out of a possible 130, while MCP79MX scores 100 points and has CPU utilization of 30 percent. Intel takes more than 80 percent of CPU time to play this test on GM45.

If this is not enough for you the following games have issues or failing on GM45 even on low settings: World Of Warcraft, Age of Conan, WarhammerOnline, HL2 Titles (test EP2), Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Fallout 3, Call Of Duty, Crysis Warhead, Left 4 Dead, Bioshock, Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect, Knight’s of the Old Republic 2 and probably many more.
