Intel HD Graphics - Nvidia and AMD Equivalents

Intel HD Graphics are getting better with each generation, but they still offer performance at the level of low end dedicated video cards from Nvidia and AMD. If you wonder which Nvidia or AMD video card your Intel HD Graphics is equivalent to in order to make the proper choice for upgrade or simply out of curiosity, then you have come to the right place. In this article I'm going to show you which dedicated video cards offer the same performance as the different generations of Intel HD Graphics.

The table below shows the dedicated Nvidia and AMD video cards, which offer approximately the same level of performance as the corresponding model of Intel HD Graphics. The last column of the table illustrates the performance of each Intel HD Graphics model relative to Intel HD 2000, i.e. how many times faster it is than Intel HD 2000. This is useful information, because an Intel HD Graphics with a larger model number is newer, but not always faster than one with a smaller model number.

  2. I have a Intel® Sandybridge Desktop Which one of these is that?

    1. Hi, it depends on your exact Sandy Bridge processor. If it's a core i processor whose model number ends with K ("Core i5 2500K", "Core i7 2600K", etc.) or a core i processor whose model number ends with 5 ("Core i3 2125", "Core i5 2405S", etc.), then it comes with Intel HD Graphics 3000. In all other cases it comes with the slower Intel HD Graphics 2000. You can also do a Google search for you processor's exact model number and you will find more info about its Intel HD Graphics version.
