Video Card Performance

Technology changes very quickly, so it is always recommend that you look at the date when this article was last updated. This article was last updated 1-19-24.

The latest Intel Core CPUs, the 14th Generation Socket 1700 i5-i9's and Xeon E-2300's, offer improved graphics performance straight through your CPU.

To note, Intel's latest entry-level workstation CPUs, the Xeon E-2300 CPUs, offer a number of CPUs with Intel UHD P750 graphics, which offer entry-level professional graphics pre-tested with such programs as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, and Autodesk AutoCAD. In fact, these CPUs rival video performance from most standard video cards, with the exception of high-end dedicated graphics cards. Keep in mind, not all Xeon E3 v5 CPUs include the P530 graphic unit.

Also, keep in mind that there are other issues such as how much of your RAM your CPU graphics processor will take from the graphics processor on your CPU. Graphics RAM usage through your CPU will be auto negotiated by your PC and as such, may not allocate as much RAM as a dedicated card would.

Similarly, the amount of RAM available to ordinary system requirements will be decreased by the amount of RAM your CPU is using for graphic performance. If you have sufficient RAM in your system, this shouldn't be an issue, even for light to moderate graphics use and gaming. For more intensive graphics and video needs we recommend a high-end video card listed below. The higher the CUDA cores the more multi-tasking and graphics and video performance your video card will be able to accelerate.
