Nexuiz would only run on the more powerful Ironlake/Arrandale system, but its frame-rate performance was not affected by enabling the Sandy Bridge New Acceleration architecture.

For both the Gen3 and Arrandale systems, the SNA performance was not affected when running the Warsow game.

When running the OpenArena game, the Core i3 330M system was 14% faster when SNA enabled and just about 10% (or 1 FPS) for the Gen3 system.

The World of Padman performance was also promising with the Arrnnadale system boasting a 14% improvement for the Ironlake SNA back-end and 43% for the i945 Gen3 backend.
