Does Chipset-to-GPU Matching Matter?


In PC Mark's CPU test, Intel favors Nvidia graphics, Nvidia favors ATI graphics and ATI favors Nvidia graphics while the latter two results show a possible bias in favor of competing technology! This peculiar coincidence is almost ironic.

The 680i SLI takes PC Mark's RAM test, but once again wins using a competing graphics card.

Nvidia's chipset again leads in PC Mark's System test, while this time it has a Nvidia card.
