    Help Me Choose: Graphics Cards

    Laptop and desktop computers offer two kinds of graphics card options: integrated and discrete. You’ll sometimes see graphics cards called video cards.

    Integrated Graphics Cards
    Integrated graphics cards from Intel use less power and make less noise than discrete graphics cards. However, integrated cards can’t provide the most dynamic visual experiences. Integrated cards are common in laptops, 2-in-1s, and desktops designed for relatively light workloads because they are more energy-efficient (though less powerful) than discrete cards.

    Perfect for: A good balance of performance and efficiency for a wide range of tasks and workloads, ideal for most people using typical office productivity applications and occasionally stream a video.

    Discrete Graphics Cards
    Discrete graphics cards from NVIDIA and AMD are more powerful at processing video and digital content creation or games than integrated cards. Those applications render visual experiences in real time (rather than just playing back or streaming recorded video). Discrete cards use more power than integrated cards. They might limit your battery life in laptops. They also generate more heat, which might activate a fan or similar cooling solutions that make noise.

    Perfect for: High performance for visual content creators and other users whose computing workloads are visually intense.

    Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics — Game On!

    New Intel® Iris® Xe graphics offer discrete-level graphics performance in sleeker, thinner, and lighter laptops. 

    Intel® Iris® Xe graphics also deliver brilliant visuals with support for billions of colors, HDR10, Dolby Atmos sound, and long playback of Dolby Vision-enabled content with hardware acceleration, an industry first.

    Not only can you play top games in up to 1080p at 30 fps or more and enjoy an amazingly immersive entertainment experience, but 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics also enable you to complete creative projects with blazing speed powered by unique hardware accelerated AI, all in a sleek, thin & light laptop with leading performance — whether plugged-in or unplugged.
    Intel launches nine new 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics (code-named “Tiger Lake”) on Sept. 2, 2020. They are the world’s best processors for thin-and-light laptops with unmatched capabilities for real-world productivity, collaboration, creation, gaming and entertainment across Windows and ChromeOS-based laptops.
