Review: How good are G33 graphics?

 

Gaming:

 

We already mentioned that MSI G33 is not quite a champ when it comes to graphics. Intel GMA 3100 is a low-end product, and we don’t recommend it for gaming. Office job and fun with some online games is all that the current generation of integrated graphics can bring.

We tested two games, FEAR and Company Of Heroes. In the next review we’ll pay more attention to games, when we get the results of MSI K9AGM2 that features ATI integrated graphics 690G and AMD processor.

We tried more settings in games, but we managed to make the games playable only in low settings, 1024x768 resolution and with all the effects off.

ATI HD 2400XT looks fantastic compared to Intel GMA 3100.
 

Futuremark tests:

The low GMA 3100 scores are partly due to bad drivers for Intel integrated graphics, but even the new version of drivers shouldn’t bring that much improvement.

Very bad total result in 3D Mark 06 is never going to be better as integrated graphics accelerator supports only Shader Model 2.0. The new G35 will feature Shader Model 4.0.

If we neglect the graphics, G33 chipset performance is good.
