Onboard video is our catch-all for various integrated GPU options. If you have further questions about which specific onboard video solution is present on your configuration or quote, please feel free to contact us.

Onboard video is often a good option for systems where 3D graphics performance is not a major concern. Most modern onboard graphics will provide a platform suitable for multimedia and office use, along with reduced power usage, heat, and noise compared to most dedicated graphics cards. If you do take advantage of onboard video, expect it to use a small portion of the system RAM for storing video data.

If you have any questions, be sure to contact our sales consultants at [email protected]. They will be happy to help you find the right video card for your specific needs.

The newest generation of onboard video on today's motherboards is finally reaching a good level of performance and features. In fact, it isn't generally on the motherboard anymore: both Intel and AMD have integrated graphics into parts of their mainstream processor lines! On the Intel side that isn't designed for gaming, but can handle all manner of video acceleration (DVD, Blu-ray, etc) very well and can handle moderate 3D usage in other applications. AMD has done one better, combining Radeon graphics with some of their processors - thus making chips capable of entry-level gaming without need for a dedicated video card. The one exception to this is the add-on video chips found on some server motherboards. Those are extremely basic, designed to simply allow access to a command-line interface for occasional server administration. They are often not even capable of handling a modern graphical user interface well, and should be avoided in any situation where direct access to a system will be commonplace.
