    HDXPRT 2011 benchmark scaling #2

    This white paper continues our previous HDXPRT 2011 scaling behavior paper. We further explore how graphics components affect HDXPRT 2011 scores with earlier processors. To do this, we configured an earlier generation Intel Core 2 Quad processor Q6600 with 4 GB of RAM, and tested HDXPRT 2011 on it with internal graphics and external ATI Radeon and NVIDIA graphics cards. The paper presents our test results and includes a comparison of how the graphics approach influences HDXPRT 2011 overall scores for both the Intel Core 2 Quad processor Q6600 and the 2nd-generation Intel Core i7-2600K processor.
