I'm comparing this two specs for Dell Computer.

Intel® UHD Graphics 620 with shared graphics memory

vs

AMD Radeon® 530 Graphics with 2G GDDR5 graphics memory

I will be using basically for data analysis (as in Big Data), crunching data in Excel, surfing internet, watching movies, etc.

I'm not a graphic designer. But I might want to learn to edit some simple videos.

If i opted for the UHD Graphics, is it enough? Or should i go for AMD Radeon?

I guess you are looking at laptops? If so, here some bits to understand.

UHD Graphics 620 is a Kaby Lake Refresh (revised Intel Core 7th generation) integrated GPU. It is more powerful than most of previous Intel HD lines. Powerful 4K decoder/integrated GPU, but the VRAM is shared among your system memory.
- The better option in this comparison.

AMD Radeon 530 (GCN 1st Gen refresh, holy crap) is lacking of 4K stuff, but it comes with discrete 2GB (GDDR3 or GDDR5) VRAM. This means no sharing VRAM with the main system memory.

Someone wrote the benchmark and comparison for both.

I think it is up to your moolah, as the final decider.

Intel Igpu uses less power, for mobility I think it’s bstter.

Intel is shared RAM means using the computer RAM. Windows allocate 1.4GB I think. So, if your RAM is 4GB, then not much left.

The fastest Excel would be Excel 2003 based on my experience. Maybe because less memory access but for 64 bit I believe the Excel 2007 is the fastest blink.gif

AMD easy overheat, mobo rosak, performance may be few more fps better (15-20 fps higher), need repair laptop, required third party cooling, do not depend on the built in cooling to save laptop from overheating, all AMD laptop overheat and rosak. Usually laptop die in few months to few years.

Intel performance not the best, temperature lower, built in cooling is sufficient for cooling, no overheating issues, no need to repair laptop, some games may not run. Laptop are built to last very long.

Intel for me anytime

I think the ts was dilema to choose between intel with onboard graphic or intel with amd graphics cards.

But nice analysis there. There old amd sure easy to overhead, but from the amd ryzen reviews its seem amd processor beat intel in term of cooling and power consumption. Technology surpass i guess...

Radeon better performance, can burn out
UHD is on the Intel chip, won't burn out.

Your choice.

Good luck believing new AMD are built with better cooling and long lasting.

If you would like a better performance, Radeon AMD is usually the better bet. I've heard Intel chips aren't as efficient. And if its a shared graphics memory it's gonna be even worse.
Keep in mind though the Malaysian weather as AMD cards can overheat but if you do have a cooling system or just hike your laptop/desktop so that there is continuous air circulation through it then its alright.

First things first, laptop or desktop?

If you want to buy laptop, buy 8th generation Intel processor with nVidia MX150.

How about Intel 8th generation processor with AMD Radeon® 530 Graphics with 2G GDDR5 graphics memory?

compared with

How about Intel 8th generation processor nVidia MX150?

nvidia better?

nVidia MX150 is near GTX950M performance.
The performance is 3x better than Radeon 530.
Power consumption of Radeon 530 is 50W and nVidia MX150 is 25W.
nVidia MX150 is in total different league in terms of performance and power efficiency.

Likewise 8th generation of Intel processor, it is in total different league as compared to 7th generation Intel processor.

Thanks a lot!

How about DDR3 RAM vs DDR4 RAM? Any big difference in performance?

Obviously DDR4 is a better option.
But it's negligible.

Focus on CPU-GPU first, then SSD.
Memory type doesn't have huge impact on performance.
