Intel GMA 3000 Q965 Graphics Performance
Written by Michael Larabel in Graphics Cards on 21 October 2006. Page 5 of 5. Add A Comment

The ATI Radeon X300SE was the clear winner in Enemy Territory, while in Unreal Tournament 2003 the Intel GMA 3000 seemed to take the lead. Coming into this article we weren't too sure how the GMA 3000 series would perform, but after finishing this article we certainly have a better understanding for the position of Intel. Due to the limited tests conducted today as well as the Intel Linux display drivers being in their infancy we will refrain from posting any decisive conclusions. We will certainly continue to monitor the performance of the Intel Linux display drivers as well as delivering additional benchmarks with the GMA X3000. While the performance with these drivers are presently limited they are open-source and work great for desktop usage and boast support for desktop eye-candy. We are certainly looking forward to see how the Intel Linux display drivers evolve in the future.
