How can I check my processor name and details on Windows 10 or Windows 11?

You could check your processor details by going into System Settings through the control panel and then checking the ‘About’ option to see the system details. The system configuration details will list the make and other details of the processor on your computer.


What does it imply if I do not have integrated graphics?

If your computer or processor does not come with integrated graphics, you will have to deploy graphics chipset or card on the motherboard separately. Most compatible motherboards do come with onboard graphics chipset.

Integrated graphics means that the GPU or graphical processing unit is built into the processor. The GPU will perform image and graphics rendering using the system memory. The integrated GPU does not have any separate memory. This is the reason that most advanced gamers look towards deploying graphics adapters or system that have power GPU processing capabilities and separate memory for intensive graphics processing and rendering.

For most office and commercial reasons, integrated graphics work well. The moment you step on commercial graphics or advanced gaming, your computer’s display performance would depend on the GPU and the memory allocated for graphics handling, manipulation or the rendering processes.

If you are an advanced gamer, or a commercial graphics artist, it may be worthwhile checking systems that do not have integrated graphics. Deploy a well chose GPU and graphics system to boost graphics quality and performance.

A third party graphics card would comprise of a GPU, RAM and a fan for cooling the graphics card. The costs would vary depending upon the GPU, RAM size and on the type of fan used to cool the graphics card for optimum performance.


Summary

We have covered all the Intel i7 core family processors and laid out the configuration in terms of integrated graphics capabilities on each of these. You may deploy an external graphics card on these processors as well. If you do not have integrated graphics, you could use a graphics adapter separately for better graphics performance. Do bear in your thoughts though that the advanced graphics cards come at premium costs, with considerably enhanced display and graphics experience.
