Testing:

The z68 chipset does support an Integrated Graphics Processor on the boards and three out of the four boards in this roundup had IGPs on them that will allow to run a display without a discrete graphics card installed in the system. The benchmark that we chose to run to see how well the IGP was able to perform is Sid Meier's Civilization V. Each motherboard is going to have its own chart to show the difference between what the IGP was able to give, as well as what the discrete graphics card was able to give with Virtu Enabled.

 

Settings

  • MSAA Off
  • Global Settings = Minimum/Low
  • DirectX 11
  • High Detail Strategic View Enabled

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

Higher = Better

 

Here you can see that once Virtu is enabled on each of the boards, there is a massive increase in the FPS in Civilization V. While yes the overall settings are low, this was to simulate how the game would most likely need to be played while using an IGP instead of a discrete graphics card.
