    OK so it's a no brainer that a GTX1080 is going to outperform the onboard Intel graphics... :D

    And that ahs pretty much always been the case - onboard vs separate graphics processors

    What I am wondering, for the sake of interest, is where do the current on-chip processors sit in comparison with OLDER graphics cars. At some point, a bad enough card is probably a downgrade in performance....

    By way of an example.. I have an i7 4770 .. where would that sit in terms of 'parity' with an Nvidia card?

    Discuss :)

    It's 2013 integrated graphics.

    All of nVidia's and AMD's current discreet GPU lineup should smash it, even if they only have DDR3 memory.

    AMD's 7850K APU with 512 GCN 1.0 cores @ 720Mhz with roughly 35GB/s of bandwidth will also soundly beat it...
    Which means even a low-end and old GPU like the Geforce 640 is likely to come out on top.

    720p resolution on a 7700k:

    Apparently you might be able to run overwatch and counter strike at 1080p on medium to high. Your honestly comparing the current gen on CPU graphics to something like a GTX 460 from 2013

    8600 GS
    7800 GS
    7600 GT
    6800 Ultra 7480D (integrated)
    6530D (integrated)
    6520G (integrated)

    AMD:
    HD 3670
    HD 3650 (DDR3)
    HD 2600 XT
    X1800 GTO

    Cheers.

    I guess im wondering whether there would be any benefit putting a graphics card of some sort in my linux box... given that my gaming is done on my windows PC.

    Probably not if you don't game on it
    Integrated is perfectly ok for non gaming

    Well. Unless you intend to do GPU compute such as Folding@Home, Seti, Bitcoin mining, Transcoding etc'. Then... There probably isn't any real point.
    The integrated graphics is free and low power.

    Im not saying the list is wrong, but depending on the workload a HD4600 will runs rings around most of the cards listed for movies.

    A HD4600 is a much more modern, capable IGP than the HD4000 these are compared against.
