AGP Card and Integrated Video Comparison

And for a comparison of the integrated video and an upper mid-range state of the art video card – also using a the i815E based Soyo 7ISA and a Celeron 600 but with 64MB of SDRAM running at 100MHz.

I know a lot of readers have no use for integrated video – but that’s not the point of the testing. There are a number of applications where it works just fine, 3D and gaming performance is acceptable, and integrated video is the best cost effective solution – expect to see more and more chipsets supporting it. SiS has a couple of integrated video chipsets – one of the first was the SiS 5598 Socket 7, the SiS 530 Super 7 has been used by a number of manufactures, and now we are seeing the 540, the SiS 630 series for Intel Slot 1 / Socket 370 and soon the SiS 730 for AMD Slot or Socket A. VIA has had the Super 7 MVP4, now the PM133 for Intel Slot 1 or Socket 370 and will soon have a Socket A solution – the KM133.
