SIS Mirage 3 671MX vs SIS Mirage 3+ 672MX vs SIS Mirage M661FX

SIS Mirage 3 671MX

► remove

The SIS Mirage 3+ is an onboard (shared memory) graphics card for laptops on the SIS 671MX chipset. No Vista Premium (Aero) support. Not usable for 3D games. The successor, the Mirage 3+ is DirectX 9 capable (and therefore ready for Aero) but still not usable for 3D games.

SIS Mirage 3+ 672MX

► remove SIS Mirage 3+ 672MX

Onboard (shared memory) graphics card integrated in the SIS M672MX

chipset. Sometimes the graphics card for laptops is also called "SIS M672 integrated".

The graphics core is capable of DirectX 9 and therefore Windows Vista Premium certified. The chip is not usable for 3D games. Only Quake 3 Arena should run barely. World of Warcraft, UT 2004 (4 fps) or Aquanox (5fps) are not playable.

SIS Mirage M661FX

► remove

The SIS Mirage / SIS 661FX is an onboard graphics card in the SIS M661FX chipset. Because of bad drivers and a slow performance, the Mirage is not suited for 3D games. Even the very old Doom 3 and UT 2004 did not run fluently on a test sample (or even had severe graphical errors). Only Quake 3 Arena and the Aquamark (Aquanox 2 benchmark) ran with the lowest detail settings with acceptable framerates.

Due to missing pixel shaders (DirectX 9), the M661FX is not capable of displaying Aero effects in Windows Vista and Windows 7.
