no way it can be , first of all intel HD graphics only have 350 or 600 core speed , and even ddr4 ram only have 2400mhz if im right ... 2nd there are many features in the dedicated GPU that no iGPU can replace , sell all and get new one might be a good choice , but trade all for a intel graphics iGPU , i have no i more words

Ops. What happened to Zap9x?

Any way, for the rest of you. The word on the street is that the new Intel Iris Pro will be in a separate socket on the motherboard instead of on the CPU as all previous Intel HD versions. Leaks are putting performance on par with upper mid-range GPUs. Being a socket, I suspect they'll be upgradable. The "Integrated GPU" will be on a 14nm die so there could be lots features packed into it.

the gtx was about 300 when I bought it and one of the amd cards was about 180 though I have no idea what I could get from them now since both amd cards have been in somewhat overkill usage because of the mining..

That was more of a tongue in cheek comment than a directive. Besides, the new CPU and boards aren't out yet. The point was to illustrate that the new Intel HD processors will be mind blowing fast compared to the Sandy Bridge HD2000 graphics. Some initial estimates say over 32 times as fast.

What do you mean with "more of a tongue in cheek comment than a directive"? I thought you asked for what I thought about selling the cards, not giving directives?

I don't normally like to speak for people but I think he meant he was having a light hearted quip as opposed to actually telling you what to do.

If you think American humor is hard to understand, try English (England) humor.

Didn't mean to confuse you and suggesting integrated graphics to a gamer is near sacrilege. (Or so I'm told.) I was just trying to point out that in the near future, integrated graphics will be a viable choice in midrange performance. There's no price leaked yet but as I said, it will only be offered on the high end motherboards from what I understand. If you'd like to research it more, Google Intel Iris Pro.

Hate to be this kind of a guy but it is British humor not English because English is the language not the country, so like you said "If you think American" it points to the people not the language, but then I don't like to judge people I look at the world like that everyone makes mistakes and no one is perfect and you are somewhat bound to make mistakes sooner or later..

Yeah did a Google search on it but I don't know like it can be nice having that integrated for example in a laptop so you would get it as thin as possible. But I have always seen desktops as monsters so having integrated graphics would not just stick.

But you are that kind of guy for reasons I don't understand. And you are incorrect. I didn't say British humor for a reason. If you are British, you could be from England or any one of 14 other territorial possessions. The humor is quite different in all of them. And they all don't speak English. Perhaps I was just as incorrect in saying "American" in that there are three Americas and each very different. Even so; when the world speaks of Americans, there's hardly any confusion about which country is the subject. In any case; I will take to mind the humor, or lack of it, of the Finish from now on.
