Onboard Geforce 6150 Results

The following results are based on some graphic intensive games as well as popular multiplayer games.  The resolutions are tested at 800x600 and 1024x768.  Let's be honest here, you cannot expect the onboard graphics to be that powerful.  Anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering are all turned down to absolute zero so the best gaming performance is possible.  The driver used was the ForceWare 81.85 and the system was kept at stock speeds.

You can see that there is not much to expect from the Geforce 6150.  Playing a graphic intense game like Doom 3 is quite impossible.  The skipping frames will skip you to death.  Far Cry was a little better, but still a far cry from playable.  The Geforce 6150 only sees potential from an older, yet popular, game like Unreal Tournament 2004.  Unfortunately, that is at the lowest resolution.  I tried it the Geforce 6150 on World of Warcraft and it showed me an average of 20-22 frames per second in a regular town, not an Auction House town.  It felt like my mage was casting "blink" the entire time.  The Geforce 6150 will provide good video quality for your multimedia purposes, but gamers will definitely need a horsepower boost from a separate video card.
