Both the RADEON 9100 IGP and 865G register similar processor performance as we'd expect, but the 865G memory controller appears to be slightly more efficient.  ATI confirms that the IGP's memory controller has been identified as an area where more performance can be had, so expect the final product to feature increased throughput.

ATI gets another leg up, despite an un-optimized memory controller.  We'd only expect performance here to improve as ATI makes final adjustments to the silicon.

Business Winstone isn't as graphically intensive as some of the other metrics run thus far.  So, if there were a sport we'd expect the 9100 IGP to lag, this would be it.  Hopefully, as ATI makes improvements to the memory controller, the 9100 will at least normalize to Intel's 865G platform.
