Graphics card is an important part of the computer, mainly undertake the task of output display graphics, for people who like to play games and engage in professional graphics design, the purchase of a computer is the most concerned about this part. There are three types of graphics cards, which are independent graphics cards, integrated graphics cards and core graphics cards. Today and we introduce what is the difference between the first two kinds of graphics cards.
Computer independent graphics card and integrated graphics card difference
1, integrated graphics card is the display chip, video memory and related circuits are done on the motherboard, and the motherboard integrated graphics card, usually do on the motherboard northbridge chip. Generally in order to assist heat dissipation, it is covered with heat sink, in addition to the CPU that covers the heat sink should be the North bridge chip, integrated graphics card is integrated in it.
2, the independent graphics card is the display chip, video memory and related circuit alone in a piece of circuit board, and as an independent board card, it needs to occupy the expansion slot on the motherboard and in technology ahead of the integrated graphics card.
3, integrated graphics card is fixed on the motherboard so it can not be replaced and upgraded, and integrated graphics card generally does not have video memory, need to occupy part of the memory as video memory, in some ways will affect the performance of the computer. The advantage of integrated graphics card is low power consumption, small heat, and cheap, suitable for budget is not much and demand is not high users.
4, independent graphics card general volume is relatively large, and the power consumption is relatively high, the volume of the chassis and power supply are required, relatively, independent graphics card does not occupy the system memory, can be replaced and upgraded, and the performance is better, a mainstream independent graphics card performance may be several times or even more than ten times the set display. As long as there is a need for game entertainment or professional graphics users are recommended to use a separate graphics card.
