The integrated graphics chip is called the Radeon HD ; it’s a DirectX based chip with 40 stream processors and a clock speed of MHz, but it relies on shared system memory instead of a dedicated frame buffer. I also saved a lot of money as one guy try to convince me of getting a whole new PC, when the only thing wrong was a faulty motherboard! Using this mode at a resolution of x with a Sapphire Radeon HD graphics card, the board recorded a frame rate of 27fps frames per second in FEAR, which is 10 frames more than the Radeon HD chip recorded on its own.

Gigabyte Technology GA-MA78GM-S2H, Socket AM2+, AMD Motherboard
Iggabyte previous implementations of integrated graphics, where you could use either integrated or discrete graphics solutions, the G implementation allows you to use both in a bid to improve your graphics performance.
I haven’t tried it as my card isn’t compatible with the I needed this part and couldn’t find it any where! Not require d by the HD It’s not top-notch, but it’ll run Crysis.

Cons The ‘hybrid’ feature isn’t documented in the manual. AMD Socket 7 Motherboard.
Gigabyte’s latest motherboard is small, but it packs plenty of punch. The graphics slot will come in handy should you want to build a media centre capable of running games at high resolutions, but the integrated graphics chip itself is adept at playing many older gigabte smoothly at a resolution of x and without visual enhancements such as antialiasing turned on.

The motherboard even features Radeon HD onboard graphics, which mma78gm-s2h be used for Hybrid Crossfire. The box has some sign of wear from being in the shelf.
Would you buy this? It arrived yesterday ja78gm-s2h I replaced the old faulty one with the new motherboard to match all my specs, case size and other hardware! In essence, it’s very similar to the ATI Radeon HD graphics card, except that it’s a little slower and doesn’t have its own memory.

The lowest-priced brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its m7a8gm-s2h packaging where packaging is applicable. Running 2GB of RAM, an Athlon 64 X2 e CPU, a Seagate Barracuda ES hard drive, and a Serial ATA-based optical drive, along with the board’s integrated graphics, our machine idled at around 70W of electricity, so unless you gigaybte on installing a fast Phenom CPU and mid- to high-end graphics card, as well as more than two hard drives and a few case fans, you won’t need a large power supply to run this board at all.
Unfortunately, ‘hybrid’ mode isn’t documented anywhere in the motherboard’s manual. Show More Show Less. Giving TONS of features for a low price in a small package.
There is a caveat. It could use more than 2 PCI cards.
Then when you install a Radeon HD card in the PCI Express slot, the CrossFire option will show up in the driver, which will allow both the new card and the integrated graphics to work simultaneously. You will need software. Bottom Line Gigabyte’s latest motherboard is small, but it packs plenty of punch. Trending Price New. It’s well built, and it has the heavy feeling to back it up. Just what I wanted!
