Express-test:CrossFire X in laptops or Radeon HD 3200M HD 3470
September 17, 2008, 9:31 am
It is gratifying surprise results of a new embedded graphics Radeon HD 3200M, it is time to look at the technology that is capable CrossFire X. This technology is part of the functionality Hybrid Graphics and combines built with discrete graphics card series Radeon HD 2400 and 3400. Knowing what can integrated solution in the platform Puma, and the idea of having productivity Radeon HD 3470, will begin acquaintance. Subsistence excellent material for a laptop that FCS Amilo Pa3553. With him and start.
Processor:Turion X2 Ultra ZM-80, the working frequency 2, 1 GHz, the amount of cache memory 2 Kb H1024;
Memory:2H2048 Mb DDR2 800 MHz;
Hard drive:320 GB, 5400 rpm.
laptop interest in that it is precisely realized CrossFire X technology based on Radeon HD 3200M and Radeon HD 3470. So, in order for this technology works, it is necessary to choose the Catalyst Control Center CrossFire tab and put the checkbox, while not forgetting to include Catalyst AI in the"standard"mode. When a Catalyst AI will operate a graphic chip. But what chip is to be seen. But before this, learn to be able to laptop technology with disabled CrossFire X. A standard set of disciplines will help us in this. The results obtained with a close acquaintance with with Radeon HD 3200M, while a few percentage points higher than them. Maybe this is connected with a processor, or so that when disconnected mode CrossFire X, is not integrated kernel, as a discrete card. To learn this, proceed as follows. With the help of utility AMD GPU Tool reduce speed GPU, first built graphics, and then discrete and runs one of the tests. The response was received at the Radeon HD 3470, is testing the final result was AquaMark 29281"parrot". Thus, in incorporating the technology CrossFire X is engaged in integrated graphics and, together with discrete solutions, such tandem gives the following results. is not bad, do not take into account the result in 3DMark 2001, growth in embedded graphics activation order of 45% in modern games will be provided. A good cause for manufacturers of notebook PCs play in this. Colorful stickers on the box and the laptop itself, showing all the charms of technology CrossFire X, are an additional marketing advantage. On the other hand, and there is a benefit to the user, using hidden reserves his notebook, he will receive performance gains.
