    AMD's relatively new APU's come with the new AMD Fusion Graphics Chip!!!
    [AMD Radeon HD6250 / HD6290 / HD 6310 / ....... ]
    I benchmarked them with the NVidia ION portable solution - After all tests I can confirm that the new "Revolution of Mobile Gaming" has begun!!!!

    TEST:
    ---------------------
    ATI HD6310 v.s. NVidia ION2


    Both GPU's are mainly made for mobile devices that require a lill more performance than Intel's solution (GMA950, HD - Series, NM-10, X3100 - Series)

    After hours of gaming and more I can announce that the HD6310 kicks Nvidia Ion straight in the butt-hole!!!! :nutkick:

    The ION Card struggeled with its weak Hardware acceleration on HD Youtube Videos.
    The ATI HD-6310 played 1080p without a stutter!

    Next:
    --------------------------------

    COD4 - all low - MAX RESOLUTION

    ATI once again kills the ION!!! Some parts where unplayable!
    The ATI performed well with the rather slow 1.5GHz AMD E-240!
    Frames where averaging arround 40 and only dropped a hand full times below 20FPS throughout the game!!!
    Intels Dual Core Atom did't help much there!!! :laugh:
    This prooves to me that a Single Core AMD doesnt have to be weaker than a Dual Core Atom!

    COD5 - all low - MIN RESOLUTION

    ATI automatically wins this one, because this game was almost unplayable with the ION2!!! :ohwell:
    Although the ATI only averaged 20 FPS, Zombie Mode ran pritty good on all maps with +30 FPS averaging!!!

    ATI performed better in games like GTA: SA, Max Payne 2, L4D, L4D2,.....
    ION2 never outperformed the ATI in any game and FPS in 3D MArk 2001 are also lower....
    DIsappointing....
    Big Congratz to ATI / AMD for this great IGP!!!!
    PLays games and saves power!!!!

    My recommendations:
    Get a AMD-C60 + HD6290 or a E-240 / 350 with a HD6310 :toast:

    Laptops used for testing: AO722, X120e, Asus 1215


    I did alot more test's but I don't want to type too much, because my teacher is close by and he will notice!! :laugh:

    Cant wait to graduate.... :cry:

    wtf?
    My ion 1 machine had approx 40 fps at med settings 1024x768, with only occasional drops
    What is wrong with ion 2?
