The x3100 may be comparable in performance to a radeon 7500 or geforce 2 gts once the drivers mature. However, it is capable of handling more features. Comparing it to a 9700 is not valid. Integrated graphics are designed for low cost, low power usage, and decent features for output and video acceleration. Gamers are not the target audience.
