Which laptops have integrated graphics processors and which have discrete ones?
Posted by on 16 February 2015 02:23 PM

Firstly what is the difference between integrated or discrete graphics processor (GPU)?

An integrated GPU is soldered directly onto the motherboard.  This is much better for thinner chassis as they take up less room, but it means that you can not upgrade your GPU in the future.  A discrete (MXM - Mobile PCI Express Module) GPU is a card that houses the GPU that slots into the motherboard (similar to a desktop PC) - this is larger, and requires a larder cooling system, but there is the possability of upgrading your GPU in the future (upgrades currently unavailable - 01/05/2015).


At the moment all of our laptops use wither NVIDIA GTX 8XX or 9XX series GPUS, with the exception of the Work series, which can also be configured with NVIDIA Quadro GPUs.
