Which processor (with good integrated graphics) would you recommend?

Hi

Here are two processors with integrated graphics. Which is better?
AMD Athlon 5350 APU
Intel Celeron G1840

I have the 5350 and it's graphics performance is great. It's like a full-featured GPU!
But! I'm thinking to get this Intel one for an other computer . Do you think ir's graphics are as good as the AMD? Or is Intel's graphics still as bad as it was before?

depending on what you use the graphics for, you may be better of just getting a cpu that doesnt have integrated graphics, and then get and actual gpu, which will actually provide better performance than integrated

Choosing processor with integrated graphics - which one?

Thanks for your suggestions. However, I do not want to get a seperate graphics card. Instead, I purposedly want to use integrated graphics.
The key is energy efficiency. This machine has a high average uptime and is mostly used for office work, internet browsing, and media playback (including 1080p 60FPS HD and bluray). Occassionally for gaming too but not heavy level (older games, so NOT GTA 5 level)

Actually a good IGP (integrated graphics chip) can handle that, but the question is... which would be that one? Not just out of these two, but from ANY integrated cards.

No way would I purchase a Celeron, that is the bottom of the barrel, if it even makes it into the barrel.

Is that the best you can afford ?

Newer Celerons are much better than Pentium Ds, Pentium Dual Cores, and Core 2 Duos.

I wonder what made you say that? It's just for office work and a bit of gaming.

No way, Celerons are cpu`s that don`t make the cut, they are rejects

Celeron processors can run all IA-32 computer programs, but their performance is often significantly lower when compared to similar CPUs with higher-priced Intel CPU brands. For example, the Celeron brand will often have less cache memory, or have advanced features purposely disabled. These missing features can have a variable impact on performance, but is often very substantial. While a few of the Celeron designs have achieved surprising performance, most of the Celeron line has exhibited noticeably degraded performance.[1] This has been the primary justification for the higher cost of other Intel CPU brands versus the Celeron range.

Introduced in April 1998,[2] the first Celeron branded CPU was based on the Pentium II branded core. Subsequent Celeron branded CPUs were based on the Pentium III, Pentium 4, Pentium M, and Intel Core branded processors. The latest Celeron design (as of January 2014) is based on the fourth generation Core i3/i5/i7 series (Haswell).[3] This design features independent processing cores (CPUs), but with only 66% as much cache memory as the comparable Core i3 offering.

Hi,
Yea I don't get it your question says graphic's card but you reject them entirely

All I see is 50.us cpu's and that's just whack

If you like AMD so much get another one.

For the record you don't even say what mother board you have

The AMD 5350 has the graphics power about equal to Intel's HD 4000 which is equivalent to a Nvidia 9500 GT..... The Celeron G1840 has the graphics power about equal to a Nvidia 9400 GT.....

Thank you everyone. Actually, I didn't pick the motherboard just yet, because I haven't decided the CPU brand yet

Yeah I'm aware the topic title is "Which is the better graphics card" yet I reject them. I should have written "Which is the better integrated graphics card"?

This will be our family work PC (with maybe a little bit of light gaming, like flash-game level, not GTA5).
The reason I don't want to buy a PCIE dedicated graphics card is that it would add to the power consumption and minding the uptime of this computer and it's light required processing power, it wouldn't be benefical.


I know Intel Celerons are bottom of the barrel. (or next to the barrel, haha)
I had one back in 2005 and I hated it so much I replaced it within months. But as others mentioned, the new ones might not be so bad, since they are based on modern Intel CPUs. But still, they are stripped-down versions.

Honestly, I'm not sure. I could go with the AMD Athlon 5350 (I do have that in my other PC, it's performance AND 25W TDP is amazing) but there's a big drawback. All the motherboards for AMD AM1 Athlons have a very limited range of ports. The most painful is that they Only 2 SATA ports. Yep. Basically you connect an SSD, the DVD drive and that's it...
That's fine for my desktop computer (also mostly office work and older games -- though it's graphics performance is quite nice) but I'm quite worried about having 2 SATA ports on the new PC.


The budget is limited, but this is not the top. I can afford a bit more. Not i5/i7s of course, but a little more than these above...
So what processor (with good integrated graphics) would you recommend? I'm quite curious.

I use Intel for a reason. You get the most bang for the buck. They do cost more for sure. You get what you pay for.

I personally just save up some more money and get a Intel. Any body can make cheap stuff for a cheap price. Intel is not cheap but well worth saving for.

If AMD made a great product for a less price we would all be using them.

I'm not sure that a Intel cpu uses any more power than a AMD.
If it does so be it, just plug the laptop in.
