    Default Intel HD Graphics 3000 vs AMD Radeon HD 6490M

    I was wondering if these two graphics cards have the same performance despite the GDDR RAM in the Radeon.

    If for instance I buy a laptop with the Intel HD Graphics 3000 and just add 1GB RAM to the laptop will it perform the same if I just got a laptop with the AMD Radeon HD 6490M graphics card?

    Do you mean the Macbook Pro? I don't think there's another laptop in existence that makes use of the odd 6490m.

    I guess there's the DV6t, but the 6770m is a $25 upgrade that anyone would be completely mad out of their mind to pass up. On the other hand, Apple charges $300.

    Thanks for your replies.
    Not a Macbook.. I'm comparing graphics between the Dell Latitude E5520 and the HP Probook 5430s.
    I really like the Latitude and it's mostly likely I'll buy it, but the graphics are bugging me.. I don't intend to play a lot of games on this laptop but I would like to play at least some old games. Will the Intel HD Graphics 3000 be up for the job?

    The base 15" Macbook Pro has the 6490M.

    For old games and even new games (albeit at some reduced settings), the Intel graphics will be just fine. It's actually a pretty capable integrated card.

    its not a very good card, its about as fast as the old gt 330m, specially the lower clocked versions that were in the vaio Z and the macbooks

    Intel HD graphics is good for DX10. AMD 5000 / 6000 series cards are DX11 capable.

    HD3000 is just the worse GPU possible. If you do only Office and some light stuff no problem, but today even web can push a card to the max. Go for AMD card. The difference is significative.
