GPU and CPU with intergrated graphics???

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was wondering if your computer would work with a GPU and a CPU with intergrated graphics? I know it is a strange question I was just wondering if it would work. 

Take my advice with caution. I could be wrong.

Hi how is your day there is not much down here so I recommend you return back to the post. O you are still here, um well then you can read down below


I am using a chromebook and most of this platform is using windows that means I am outnumbered :/. I hope to join the windows clan later this year by building a pc. Lets just hope prices are normal by then. If they are not, well I do not know what I will do. Okay well on to the posting.

Yes, it would work.

The integrated graphics would get turned OFF once a dedicated videocard is installed, but this can be enabled in the BIOS again if you truly wanted to have both running at the same time.

Not sure what you mean. Most modern CPU have integrated graphics (IGPU).
Wouldn't make any sense for a DGPU to have integrated graphics, as that's what a GPU is.


You can use IGPU and a DGPU in the same system to drive extra monitors.

Yes, even at the same time. People have been running graphics cards with intel QSV (that requires an iGPU) for years

Totally works!

You can even use the integrated GPU at the same time as your graphics card (Not that I would recommend it, definitely some video artifacts with this specific setup.)

But yeah, go for it!

can you use them at the same time? yea

can you boost game performance with both of them running at the same time? no


normally the iGPU will be disabled when dGPU is plugged in, but you can enable it in bios and use the video out ports on your motherboard to connect extra monitors

and yes, gaming on those ports are fine, your dGPU will still render the game, and pass the output thru the iGPU, so you'll still get dGPU performance

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general




Products I like:


Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite


Products I hate:


Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares


Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)


be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend


Companies I hate:


Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)


Personal Blacklisted Companies:


Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones


Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Some older AMD APU processors would do a hybrid crossfire with certain discrete cards. Modern hardware doesn't have this feature that I'm aware of.

- If it ain't broken, don't fix it!
