Intel Caught Cheating In 3DMark Benchmark


Recommended Posts

EconolineCrush writes "3DMark Vantage developer Futuremark has clear guidelines for what sort of driver optimizations are permitted with its graphics benchmark. Intel's current Windows 7 drivers appear to be in direct violation, offloading the graphics workload onto the CPU to artificially inflate scores for the company's integrated graphics chipsets. The Tech Report lays out the evidence, along with Intel's response, and illustrates that 3DMark scores don't necessarily track with game performance, anyway."

define " most of the present game"

maybe your definition is different from ours

well capable of running doesn't mean running the game good

it just mean that games will just work

but setting the game on high display effects

that will not work

but is it capable of running games like

NFS Shift ?

Assain creed ??

it would be hard but it may run them
