Inbuilt Graphics Better Than Graphics Card?


I had installed a XFX Geoforce 8400 GS 512 MB DDR2 card in my system. This was bought about 3 years back. I thought it would improve the performance of my computer.

The windows Experience was 3.6. The limiting factor was the Graphics card.

Today the Graphics card went bust. So I reverted to the original built in graphics of the motherboard. Surprisingly there seems to be little change.

Then I ran the Windows experience. It is 4.5 now.

Does this mean the Graphics chip of the motherboard is better than 8400 GS? The motherboard is Asus PSG41T-M LX 1333.

I upgraded the motherboard after purchasing the card and never tested it till now.

By the way does this Graphics card have a warranty of 3 years?

Re: Inbuilt Graphics Better Than Graphics Card?

Yes most of the graphic cards have a 3 year warranty, but it depends from company to company.

Also, though you have not mentioned the motherboard name but seeing that you are on C2D, NO onboard graphics card is not better than a discrete graphic card, Windows Index does not mean anything at all, also your onboard graphic cards will be using your RAM, and depending upon how much ram your system has, it might be more than 512MB (size of ram on your graphic card) though it does not matter how much ram your graphic card has, and it is not an indication of how powerful the graphic card is, but in Windows Index that might be a parameter.

Re: Inbuilt Graphics Better Than Graphics Card?

Your 8400 GS is just a notch above your x4500 onboard graphics but even a non-discrete Intel HD2000 is better than your 8400GS, although not by much. HD3000 is quite ahead and HD4000 is miles ahead of your present discrete graphics.

The performance of current integrated graphics has improved enough to put these older generation cards into the bin

I checked the specifications of the GMA X4500 GPU which comes with the Motherboard. It is quite good.

In a review published in May 2008, the GMA X4500 showed a superior game performance to the lowest-end 1-year-older GeForce 8400M graphics card in some CPU-bound tests, while losing to the still low-end GeForce 8400M GS with a slower CPU.

Well, isn't that exactly what I said... your 8400 is just a notch better... which means your x4500 is almost there!
