DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know why 15-inch MacBook Pros are more expensive than any other laptops? Well, one of the reasons is that they are equipped with a dedicated graphics card. Looking back on the early years of computer, every component needed a separate card. This means a card was needed for the audio, video, graphics, so on. Thanks to technological advancement, miniaturization happened. It eradicated the need for separate cards, integrating everything into the motherboard. Hence, the birth of the integrated graphics card.
Yet, why are the latest models of laptops still have dedicated graphics? This is common among gaming laptops because it arguably boosts the performance of the whole system. It works as a mini-system inside a system--it has an independent processor (the GPU), cooling system, and more. The discrete GPU installed in MacBook Pros provides stellar performance yet it consumes more energy. Well, if Apple is smart enough to have an 'automatic graphics switching' that lets the MacBook switch from using discrete GPU to using integrated one. While the dedicated cards are more efficient, the integrated ones maximize all its available resources to function well and do not take a toll on the laptop's battery life. So integrated vs dedicated, it's your call.
