ATI has freshly lost its title of the best IGP manufacturer. The Core i5 661 IGP, clocked at 900MHz, proved to be superior to the HD 3300 and HD 4200 which previously were at the top of the performance crown. This is at stock settings though; what Neoseeker labs concluded is that the ATI graphics processor is still faster clock-for-clock. However, the problem is that the vast majority of people do not overclock integrated graphics processors found in retail computers.
ATI is not standing still in front of that. Losing the performance crown in the IGP market after so long is quite disappointing, however it is not going to be for long; the 785G and 790GX chipsets are soon going to see their successor. The latter will feature a new IGP, which will supposedly be the fastest IGP ever. Now I can read that magical keyword in your head: "When!?"
As you have probably noticed, AMD is going to launch a few new processors in late January. The HD 5xxx graphics card series is also going to be expanded with a few new models and the first chipset of the 800 series is scheduled to launch after that. Let's also note that a new iteration of ATI's Hybrid Crossfire will be made possible with a dedicated GPU from the latest generation. As always, we'll believe it when we see it!
