vicklemos: I know the people at Intel are working their asses off, but wouldn't it be great if we had integrated graphics comparable to off board amd/nvidia ones, even in terms of "heavy" gaming? I'd love to see that.

yberkurko: Two big reasons that come in mind are heat and power delivery. Dedicated card can have much better cooling than chip integrated in same package with cpu (cpu and gpu heating each other) also motherboard power delivery would need to be quite special sort to power both high end cpu and gpu.
As long as graphics cards manufacturers bother making dedicated cards it should be rather easy to make them better performance than integrated.
Yup. After a ton of statements and issues here, I think space saving is still a top priority for Intel and their cpus; I understand that the "future lies" with smaller gaming devices, too, like it or not.

If I want to buy/build:

Gaming PC => nVidia
Budget Gaming PC => AMD (my current pc)
Not enough money to buy a GPU => Intel-only PC.
At the moment its AMD. Had very bad expirience with all of the Nvidia cards I owned and decided to switch to AMD last year. No problems so far. Will see how the card performs in the next few years.

coryrj1995: I have an AMD GPU (R9 270X 2GB) and CPU (FX 8350 8 core 4Ghz) right now, and I quite like them. Before I had a desktop, I used a cheap Wal-Mart HP laptop that had an integrated Intel GPU, and it performed pretty well (unsure what it actually was though).

I have attempted to use a Nvidia card once, turns out if the logo is yellow, and the inputs are off color, it might be a fake :P . After that I went and got my current GPU, and a new PSU to help it out. I might get a Nvidia card sometime but I am liking the new R9 390's (Apparently I wont even have to get a new PSU to keep up with those)
Since we we have same configurations i must ask if you have any problems with older games here on GOG?Do all of your games work normaly?I like nvidia better,but tend to use AMD because of price

I haven't found a game that I have had a problem with yet. The older games that I have are Might and Magic, NWN, and Red Faction. Even the older 3d games play and render perfect,

Thanks for reply
I love AMD for gaming and Intel for workstations. Both of them have great Open Source, driver support on GNU/Linux.

nVidia seem to have superior performance for gaming on Windows, but their lack of decent Open Source GNU/Linux drivers makes it a non-option for me. I will not tolerate the level of privacy invasion and loss of control that Windows 10 has introduced. My plan is to 100% switch from Windows 7 to GNU/Linux for gaming within 2 years. As such I will only be buying hardware from now on that works great on both Window and GNU/Linux (IE Intel and AMD).
I have this very nice Matrox G400 here :-) on the museum shelf.
