Total War: Shogun 2 has the option for DirectX 11 graphics. We decided to give the integrated graphics on our systems a bit of a workout with DirectX 11. Unfortunately only one of our systems is DirectX 11 capable when using the Integrated Graphics. Obviously that is the AMD A8-3850 APU, so while the AMD APU system was busy cranking out DirectX 11 benchmarks, the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro and the Intel Core i5 2500k sat idly by. With the graphics quality set to low in Total War: Shogun 2 the ASUS F1A75-M Pro was able to crank out 92.85 frames per second at 1280×1024 and 65.23 frames per second at 1920×1080.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat was able to maintain a playable framerate at both resolutions with the image quality turned down. At 1280×1024 the ASUS F1A75-M Pro was able to pull an average framerate of 40.2 frames per second and at 1920×1080 we saw an average of 30.7 frames per second in DirectX 11
In Aliens Vs. Predator the AMD A8-3850 and ASUS F1A75-M Pro did struggle a bit. At 1280×1024 we saw an average of 26.1 frames per second while at the resolution of 1920×1080 we saw only 18 frames per second.
The ASUS F1A75-M Pro was able to pull out an overall score of 1783 3DMarks in Futuremark 3DMark11 at the entry level preset. The GPU score in 3DMark 11 was 1645 3DMarks. Overall not a bad performance considering it is integrated graphics!
