Intel HD Graphics Vs Radeon HD 6320

Intel HD Graphics Vs Radeon HD 6320

– The Intel’s HD Graphics is the integrated graphics in the 1st generation Core i3, i5 and i7 processors ( It also includes Arrandale based Pentium processors – e.g. P6100 and P6200). Few representative example of processors in this series include core i3-370M and Core i3-380M.

– The Radeon HD 6320 is the integrated graphics in the AMD’s Brazos processors. These are basically low power processors for thin and ultraportable notebooks.

– Notice that we are comparing Radeon HD 6320 with Intel HD Graphics and NOT HD Graphics 3000, which are part of the Sandy Bridge processors.

    Move on. These are low end processors. If you are really into low cost graphics system, wait for the Trinity in Q3 2012 or maybe, Ivy Bridge with HD Graphics 4000. They should be available in Q3 2012.

    They will be anything but low cost. Ivy Bridge has launched, but only high end quad cores not close to what you call low cost.

  3. Stand against PC games says:

    Video games lead to addictions similar to the alcoholic and drug addiction. It makes children less interactive in society. Their quality of speech and interaction with other is negatively affected. The health problem multiplies. PC games are not like real games that where you derive physical benefits by being more physically active.

    Stand against PC games. Do not buy PC games for your kids – the same way you do not buy a Cigarette for your kids.

      “Stand against PC games” – by all means let us know how you raise your own kids and what a fine example you are setting – but do you seriously think prosthetising via the internet is going to make you look anything other than a total crank? Go be Amish somewhere else, we will let our own kids use PC or console games as we please.
