The Integrated Graphics Of I815 [Updated]

Review of Final i815/Solano Chipset

I guess nobody is surprised to see that the integrated 3D solution of i815/Solano is not exactly a great performer. However, I did not expect the bad results in Sysmark. You should think that Intel is at least able to design the integrated graphics with a decent 2D-accelerator. This does not seem to be the case. Hence I suggest using the integrated graphics for low-budget solutions only. The advantage is that such a system can easily be upgraded by adding a dedicated AGP 3D card. The disadvantage for performance users is the fact that they've got to pay for the integrated 3D decelerator, even though they might never use it.
