What is the difference between NVIDIA Graphics and Integrated Graphics?

Answer Wiki

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

NVIDIA is a graphics card company. They make add on cards of very high quality. Integrated graphics cards are built onto the motherboard and can be made by a variety of companies including NVIDIA.

****************************************************************
In addition to the above answer, I would like to tell you that the NVIDIA graphics cards are used mainly for streaming, video, gaming, graphics, design, and other high end graphics resolution, and speed requirements. Mostly when you require a good workstation (not the entry level), the Hardware company say IBM or Dell or HP use these high end cards and come bundled/installed in your workstation. Even some Dell laptops come bundled with NVIDIA, these laptops are actually workstations or high end as compared to entry level or normal usage laptops. The capacity of the card will exactly depend on how best is the performance you require and what is the application that you are going to use.

———————-
Just to enhance the answer above, NVidia is a manufacturer of processor technology, and not a card manufacturer. NVidia chips are used on most popular graphics cards, ATI is the other “player” in this market.

Laptops most of the time have integrated graphics, saving on space, but limiting the upgrade potential. This integrated graphics card draws its memory from the the installed RAM, and does not have its own memory.
Desktops (depending on the motherboard of course) mostly have a spare PCI Express slot which can be used for a video card, which is installed and utilises its own memory to process intensive graphic applications.

    the on slot cards use RAM, and the separate video graphics cards come with their own memory and that is one of the major factors that they enhance the performance and speed.

    Nvidia is a brand name, vs integrated graphics, which is a method for building graphics cards into motherboards. Integrated graphics cards are usually not as good of an option for serious gamers, who may need to update cards to stay current with sys requirements of various game designs.
