Unfortunately, I donít have a HD 3450 to test Hybrid Crossfire with. Therefore, I tested the Gigabyte board with integrated graphics only against NVIDIAís GeForce 8200 which is the fastest NVIDIA integrated graphics I had available. The tests were the same as the last GeForce 8200 review as that gave a good set of DirectX 9 benchmarks with Crysis thrown in for good measurement of DirectX 10.0 performance. On another note, 3DMark Vantage crashed on all the motherboards I tried it on and is not included for that reason.
