ASRock A75 Pro4 IGP DirectX 11 Performance
Firing up the DirectX 11 options in Total War: Shogun 2 we decided it was time to give the integrated graphics on our systems a bit of a workout with DirectX 11. Unfortunately one of our systems is not DirectX 11 capable when using the Integrated Graphics. While the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro Sandy Bridge system sits idly by, the AMD APU systems are hard at work cranking out some solid numbers in Total War: Shogun 2. At 1280x1024 the ASRock A75 Pro4 was able to take the top spot at 1280x1024 with an average of 93.02 frames per second. Granted there is only a .6% difference in the top spot and the bottom. At 1920x1080 the ASRock A75 Pro4 fell to the second spot with an average of 66.34 frames per second, behind the MSI A75MA-G55 performance of 66.43 frames per second. A difference of only .13%.
In S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat the ASRock A75 Pro4 fell to the bottom of the pack with a 1280x1024 average frame rate of 40.1 frames per second. By comparison though, there is only a .4 frame per second difference between the top spot and the ASRock A75 Pro4. Running the S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat benchmark at 1920x1080 the ASRock A75 Pro4 was able to match the performance of the ASUS F1A75-M Pro with an average of 30.7 frames per second, though the MSI A75MA-G55 was able to maintain the top spot with an average of 31.2 frames per second.
In Aliens Vs. Predator we once again saw very little performance difference. At 1280x1024 the ASRock 175 Pro4 averaged 25.8 frames per second while the ASUS F1A75-M Pro took the lead with 26.1 frames per second. At 1920x1080 the ASRock A75 Pro4 averaged 18.1 frames per second while the MSI A75MA-G55 took the lead with an average of 18.2 frames per second.
The ASRock A75 Pro4 had an overall score of 1803 3DMarks and a GPU score of 1665 3DMarks, it wouldn't be able to get any closer to the top spot than it already did. The overall score of the ASRock A75 Pro4 was 1 3DMark behind the MSI A75MA-G55 score of 1804.
