Help Me Choose: G Series Laptop Video Cards

  • Whether you’re gaming, streaming, or editing videos on your G Series laptop, the quality of the graphics you experience is only as good as your video card.
  • Along with the computer monitor itself, the video card determines the level of detail of the image that will be displayed, as well as the contrast, resolution and overall gaming graphics.
How Video Cards Work

Discrete video cards can provide better performance as compared to integrated video cards. Discrete video cards are separate from the motherboard and include a specialized graphics processing unit (GPU). Because of their onboard GPU, discrete video cards don’t have to share the CPU with other programs.

Discrete video cards include the memory of their own, measured in gigabytes (GB). Graphics memory is used by the GPU to accelerate graphics performance, store textures using game graphics, and make gaming, movies and other entertainment intensely realistic. High-performance graphics cards require a significant amount of graphics memory.
