GMA 4500 benchmarks run on Super Micro C2SEA motherboard (Intel G45 based) with 2 GB DDR3 system memory using Windows Vista SP1.

NVIDIA GPU benchmarks on Intel platform run on EVGA 790i Ultra SLI motherboard with 2 GB DDR3 system memory using Windows Vista SP1.

NVIDIA GPU benchmarks on AMD platform run on Asus M3N-HT Deluxe GeForce 8200 motherboard with 2 GB DDR2 system memory using Windows Vista SP1.

NVIDIA GPU benhmarks using Core i7 920 run on Asus Rampage Striker Extreme with 3 GB DDR3 system memory using Windows Vista SP1.

Intel graphics media accelerator driver used is 15.11.4.1591_V32.

NVIDIA discrete GPU driver used is 180.84. NVIDIA motherboard GPU driver used is 182.07.

GeForce products used are 9500 GT w/ 512MB GDDR3, 9600 GSO w/384MB GDDR3, 9600 GT w/512MB GDDR3, GTS 250 w/ 512MB GDDR3, and GTX 260 216 core w/896MB GDDR3 at default clocks.

Intel and AMD CPUs run at default clocks.

3DMark Vantage run in Performance mode, PCMark Vantage run at 10x7 setting, Crysis Warhead run at 12x10 & 4x16x setting, Far Cry 2 run at 12x10 & 4x16x setting, and Left 4 Dead run at 12x10 & 4x16x setting.

Intel GMA 4500 FPS score on Crysis Warhead, Far Cry 2, and Left 4 Dead are considered fails, as Intel GMA 4500 is not capable of 4x anti-aliasing.

The HD Video Transcoding, TMPGenc, Cyberlink, and SETI@HOME test using a GMA 4500 system are based on CPU acceleration only.

The SETI@Home test measures the time required to process a 50MB work unit.

The HD Video Transcoding test measures the time required to transcode a MPEG-2 1280x720x30 @ 20Mb/S video file to the iTunes Apple TV format.

The CPU is tested with MediaCoder to do the transcoding. The GPU is tested using the BadaBoom Transcoder from Elemental Technologies.

The TMPGEnc Xpress test measures the time required to encode a MPEG 1280x720 85.9MB to MPEG-2 720x480 file.

The Power Director 7 test measures the time required to encode a MPEG-2 1280x720 188MB to MPEG2 720x480 AVCHD file.
