The Radeon HD6520G from AMD as well as the Intel HD Graphics 3000 are integrated parts of their respective processors. The Radeon HD6520G forms part of the Llano APU, while the HD Graphics 3000 are mostly part of the Sandy Bridge processor.
The Radeon HD 6520G is, without any doubt, better than the Intel HD 3000 graphics. In the two tables below will compare some of the features and the benchmarking that establishes the superiority of the Radeon HD 6520G.
You may also like to notice that some games are CPU intensive. In such cases the In such case the benchmark may reflect the result of the CPU/GPU combined.
