Intel Sandy Bridge i5-2400 graphics Vs ATI Radeon HD5450

September 11th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments


The Intel Sandy Bridge microarchitecture is expected to be released by the end of 2010 or the beginning of 2011. One of the most exciting thing about the Sandy Bridge is its great improvement in its performance on the graphics front. The previous Arrandale generation ( used in the i3 and i5 notebook processors) had the graphics and the memory controller sections of the processor built on 45 nm technology even when the core CPU was on 32 nm technology. The Sandy bridge will have the CPU as well as the graphics core (and of course, the memory controller, as well) built with 32 nm technology. Another source of the improvement is the sharing of the L3 cache by the graphics core.

Some of the benchmarking results have been out for the Sandy Bridge processor which has proven beyond doubt that the Sandy Bridge processors will have better graphics performance. The performance of the Sandy bridge i5-2400 graphics seems to be on par or better than the ATI Radeon HD5450. It is significantly better than the HD graphics of the previous generation core i5 processor. It is worthwhile to take a look at some of the benchmarking data available. The chart below compares the bench marking performance of Intel Sandy Bridge i5-2400 graphics with respect to the ATI Radeon HD5450 and core i5-540 HD graphics. The table compiles the gaming results for Batman: Arkham Asylum, Dragon Age Origins,Dawn of War II,Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, BioShock 2, World of Warcraft and HAWX.

Table : Intel Sandy Bridge i5-2400 graphics performance

Game i5-2400 ATI Radeon HD5450 core i5-540
Batman: Arkham Asylum 66 60 28
Dawn of War II 33.4 34.9 9.5
Dragon Age Origins 69.3 54.6 34.4
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 43.9 40.1 17.5
Bio Shock 2 38 34.9 18.9

From the table it is clear that we can expect the Sandy Bridge processors to perform reasonable well in graphics.
Sandy Bridge is better than all current integrated graphics solutions. And, although Clarkdale was good for light gaming there wasn’t enough horsepower. With Sandy Bridge you can get a decent performance and you  play modern titles. Although, you may need to set quality at low.

    We can encounter these every day, so I thought incorporating meditation into my daily life might just help to make it
    a little easier. They can be found at any pharmacy or better yet on amazon.
    Traveling careers allow dental hygienists to travel to assigned cities, states, or countries to educate and sell products to dental offices,
    or even government agencies and other organizations.

    Positive feedback is good but should be able to be backed up by contacting the said
    customer for authentication. The results were a bit startling, as most of the affected websites consisted of money keyword for anchor text in over 60% of inbound
    links which gives way to negative SEO, a strictly prohibited by Google.
    So if they want page views for their from SERPs’ they
    need to manage to get their website to the top of SERPs’.
