ASRock A780GMH/128M Motherboard Review :: Integrated graphics Setup and Performance

The A780GMH/128 has an integrated HD3200 graphics controller running at 500MHz. I decided a test of a DX10 game Far Cry 2, a DX9 game Enemy Territory Quake Wars and 3DMark06 would show the graphics properly. I didn't use 3DMark Vantage due to the test failing on the HD 3300 and HD 3200. The HD 3300 is in the review for comparison purposes, but the board is in a different price class.
