Hello!
My questions is simple, i guess
1-Which is better Intel HD 520 (i5 6200U) or Geforce 820M? (At games performance)
2-Is Intel HD 520 comparable to Geforce 920M? (Yes 920M) (At games performance)
I need a simple answer , not Yes or No nor a too long one.
not trying to be picky i'm just inexperienced :)
Thanks in advance.

Basically the Intel HD 520 is equal to the nVidia 820m. The Intel HD 620 is generally considered slightly better than the nVida 920m.

However, that is only true if the laptop has two sticks of RAM. When there is an odd number of RAM sticks installed, the RAM operates at half speed. When there is an even number of RAM sticks the RAM runs at full speed. So find out if the laptop comes with one or two sticks of RAM. If it only comes with 1 stick of 4GB or 8GB of RAM, then you need to buy another stick of RAM (4GB or 8GB) and install it to get the best performance from the Intel HD 520 / HD 620 integrated graphics core.

Question from Sapphire R7 : "Which is better Intel HD 520 (i5 6200U) or Geforce 820M??"



Intel HD 520 is very dependent on system memory.
With fast ram it will be slightly faster than GF 820m.
But with slow ram it will be significantly slower than GF 820m.
