And who's says they are quitting the desktop market?
Michael, what memory did you use? As the igpu uses main memory the speed of ddr3 has hefty impact for gaming benchmark results.
EDIT -- my bad... the sticker on the RAM said 4GB but when I looked up the part number it was actually a set of 2 2GB sticks, so the table is correct. Post below updated.
The pic of the motherboard suggested 2 x 2GB sticks at 1600 :
It would be nice if Phoronix could include an Ivy Bridge system in the next graphics comparison, since this is an APU.
I'd be interested to see how they stack up against each other in linux, not just how it compares to discrete cards.
I realize it means the CPUs will have different speeds, but you can pick some i3 ivy bridge cpu to stay close - or just pick any ivy bridge you have and list the prices for each so we can compare them.
toms review you could get bit more fps by using ddr3 1866MHz rams. Could you Micheal do the quick memory comparing test with i.e. 1060,1333,1600 and 1866 MHz rams?
Hmm 2133MHz...Chipset maximum should be 1866MHz, is there some way to circumvent it or is that some artificial test. Quite impressive performance increase nonetheless.
Still, I'd rather PRIME with the features of Lucid Virtu MVP as opposed to crossfire, ultimately.
