I'm running 13.10 on a desktop with Core 2 Duo 3.0GHz/ 7GB RAM.

Will I get a performance advantage if I use a GeForce GT 630 GPU instead of the Intel Corp. 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller?


Yes. The GeForce with a Average G3D Mark of 751 will run faster and consume more power, an issue if you run on battery. Should you, indeed, be on a notebook PC on battery, you may wish to extend battery runtime by choosing the Intel integrated GPU instead which has a G3D Mark of 60.

  • I should have mentioned. It's a desktop so battery life is not an issue. – William Purcell Dec 31 '13 at 0:45
