Due to the nature of integrated graphics and the performance expected, I decided not to run the full gamut of tests with the integrated 8200 graphics. Instead I used a few DirectX 9.0 tests, the 3DMarks, and Crysis to give a sense of performance with the integrated graphics, with the discrete 8500GT and with both working in Hybrid SLI to show how Hybrid SLI increases performance.
