To start with, we have the Intel Core i5-11400F, which was launched in early 2021 on the market and lacks integrated graphics. Then we have the AMD Ryzen 5 5600G, which was also released last year and includes integrated graphics. They are two very interesting options if you want to set up a computer to play and save money in the process.
Intel Core i5-11400F, powerful, but without integrated graphics
Acquiring the latest on the market is not always the best option, especially if we want to save a little. Above all, in processors, acquiring one or more generations prior to the current one is perfect. The performance difference is usually not significant and we can purchase a very good processor with great money savings.
East Intel Core i5-11400F processor It is a clear example of an excellent option and money saving. This processor has a total of 6 cores and 12 threads processing. This processor has a base frequency of 2.6 GHz and in Boost mode can reach 4.4 GHz. It has 12 MB of L3 Cache, it has a TDP of 65W and as a big drawback, it lacks integrated graphics.
All processors, whether Core-F or Core-KF, no integrated graphics. Note that the iGPU is present, but it is deactivated due to having suffered a defect during the manufacturing process. It’s not a problem, but if the graphics were to break for whatever reason, we wouldn’t be able to use the equipment until we had a replacement.
An excellent option this mid-range processor to mount a gaming team. We just have to keep in mind that we won’t be able to use the processor if something happens to our graphics card and we have to send it to RMA.
AMD Ryzen 5 5600G, versatile solution with good integrated graphics
It is quite curious that most AMD processors do not use integrated graphics, while most Intel processors do. But in this case, it has happened to us that we have found economic solutions “against” the current.
About him AMD Ryzen 5 5600G, this processor has Zen3-type cores, which are manufactured in the 7nm process. This processor has a total of 6 cores and 12 threads. Work this processor at a base frequency of 3.9 GHz and in Boost mode goes up to 4.4 GHz. It has a total of 16 MB of L3 Cache and has a TDP of 65W.
As we said, this processor includes integrated graphics, which is not the most powerful in the world, but it would allow us to continue using the system and even play. The graph included is Radeon Vega 7 has 448 Stream Processors with a maximum frequency of 1900 MHz. Although it may not seem like it, we could play Fornite, CS:GO or LoL without major problems in 1080p resolution. Also, with FSR active (if the game supports it) we might get a handful of additional FPS.
We have a very good processor with integrated graphics which may be the best option right now. We could play and use the equipment without dedicated graphics and hope to find some good offer.
