Here it gets quite interesting especially with FarCry2. We were quite sure that the 128MB Sideport memory does have a huge impact on the results and even a 200MHz IGP overclock would not catch it. But the astonishing thing is, that the old DKA790GX which clocks the IGP the same as Elitegroup with 700MHz and doesn't feature any sideport memory does beat the newcomer. We have no explanation for that fact, maybe it has something to do with driver-optimizing. Of course we tested only the IGP boards, so 3DMark03 is running with 1024x768 setting.
