Onboard graphics have been thrust back into the limelight in recent weeks, with AMD's latest Ryzen processors raising the bar for what's possible with a single-chip design. True, the integrated graphics processor (IGP) is by no means the best bet for high-performance gaming, but when you consider the itty-bitty size and minimal power requirements of today's chips, you can't help but admire how far we've come. Heck, you need only look at the visuals produced by the Xbox One X to realise that onboard graphics have plenty of clout when used accordingly.
But PC gaming isn't renowned for optimisation, and there is often a need to acquire a much more powerful discrete graphics card in order to play the latest games. It is, now more so than ever, an important decision when purchasing a PC or laptop. Cost, power consumption, size and 3D performance are all at stake, and we're intrigued to know where you stand, so for this week's question we're asking: do you use a discrete graphics card?
