Thread: Differences Between Discrete and Integrated Graphics

    I am trying to understand the difference between discrete and integrated graphics.

    Does 'discrete graphics' mean a stand-alone video graphics card and 'integrated' graphics' mean the graphic processing unit is embedded into the motherboard?

    All I can tell from reading benchmark testing is that 'integrated graphics' are severely poor compared to stand-alone graphics cards. But does stand-alone = discrete?

    Thanks in advance.

    integrated does mean built into the motherboard.
    i havent come accross discrete graphics before but im assuming it means a proper graphics card.
