Default AMD 780G vs. Intel G45 vs. NVIDIA GeForce 8200

After nearly a month of struggling with problems, we finally published our review of Intel's G45 in the first part of this series we hastily called the IGP Chronicles. Part I looked at Intel's G45 and compared it to its predecessor: G35. Initially touted as the holy grail of HTPC chipsets, G45's advantages on paper were plagued by too many real issues for us to get excited about it.

Not that we were totally disappointed with the chipset as an HTPC platform, we just knew Intel could have done better and in the end they did not. As we alluded to in our Radeon HD 4550 review, all you really need is one of AMD's lower end cards and you can use any chipset you want for a decent HTPC.

As a business platform, G45 works just as well as G35 or any other Intel chipset so there were no complaints there, besides less than desirable HTPC attributes we discovered casual gaming performance was a big disappointment considering the chipset specifications. Paper specifications aside, gaming performance, casual or otherwise is just dismal even on several year old popular titles.
