ATI X1950 pro vs G630

Hi all,

I recently had to swap out my motherboard and I ended up getting a G630 based system. Can anyone advise me whether I'd be better off (gaming wise) with my old ATI 1950 Pro graphics card or alternatively using the graphics capabilities of the CPU. I was going to run 3dmark11 but it needs support for DirectX 11, and my card only supports up to 9. Any help advice appreciated,

Greg

    the toms hardware graphics hierarchy chart shows that the ATI1950 is better than the integrated HD graphics of the g630

    Thanks for the reply. I wasn't planning on upgrading my card at the moment. Just to trying to find out whether the on CPU graphics would beat my old ATI 1950 Pro

    Framerate wise the X1950Pro is better than the Intel HD4000 so it would be much better than the G630. Although your electric bill would thank you if you upgraded that later on :). Otherwise the Integrated graphics supports more features but would likely be to slow for you to use them anyways.

    If you were to run integrated graphics I think the only integrated card today that would be on par with the X1950Pro or faster would likely be AMD's Trinity 7660D found in AMD's FM2 based A10 processors, because even the Llano 6550D (Llano A8 series) would be slightly slower most of the time.
  5. Thanks guys. You've answered my question perfectly :D
  6. I wouldn't use that card unless for older games, instead of the two a cheap second hand 6670 for example would make a great upgrade.
