Default i5 GPU vs aAMD


I am building a new pc for a friend. He doesnt play too many modern games, so to cut cost down I was going to have him run off the stock video processor (He can buy a pci-e card when he needs to).

My question is which is a better video processor: the one built into the 4670k or that comes with the AMD 8350?


p.s. some benchmarks or links to any data would be appreciated.

well, since AMD is a generation past the 8350 on the desktop, all the comparisons are between the A-10 IGP and the Intel Haswell improvements.

or that comes with the AMD 8350?
The 8350 does not in fact have IGP, so that might help with understanding why reviews are so few.

The key is that neither will result in any kind of playable frame rates in anything except farm-ville.

You are talking the difference bt. 5 and 7 FPS in Crysis, or 7 and 5 FPS in another game...both fail.

Conversely, both(A-10 and Haswell) will be fine for watching you-tube, netflix, and browsing.

Get whichever you like better. If you want to game at all, get a $100 dedicated graphics card...a la AMD 7770 or NVGTX650

Well, if you're talking the A10 AMD chips, then the IGP in those is significantly better than that in the equivalent Intel Ivy Bridge chips.
Intel's Haswell GPU is still slower than that on the AMD A10 chips, but only by about 4-5%, and given Haswell has a massive performance advantage everywhere else, go Haswell.

And if you consider Crysis as gaming still, so long as you run it at low or medium settings, both chips can run it at acceptable frame rates.
Intel i7-2600k with an XSPC Raystorm water block, 4x4GB Corsair Dominator, SLi Evga-GTX560Ti-448 FTWs, Asrock Extreme4 Gen3, Crucial M4 256GB SSD, Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB HDD, powered by a Silverstone Strider+ 850 PSU in a Silverstone TJ-07BW case.
I'm not buying EK GPU blocks ever again. (One GPU killed)

Well, I agree the AMD is better,

Here is a good comparison:,11.html

However, I don't consider 20 FPS at 1080 acceptable...even if it is much better than the Intel.
