    Difference between graphics and RAMs

    What's a better screen: 1920 x 1080 with a Intel HD Graphics 520[/URL], or 1366 x 768 with a Intel HD graphics 620?

    Depends entirely on your application. What are you planning to use it for ?

    Re: Difference between graphics and RAMs

    Neither resolution is better, they're just different. 1920x1080 has more pixels but those pixels have to be smaller so it allows you to fit more things on screen at the cost of everything being smaller.

    It doesn't say anything about screen quality itself but unfortunately due to the association with Full HD in the TV world, 1920x1080 is often seen as a more premium option and the average screen of that resolution does tend to be better quality.

    The HD 520 and HD 620 are virtually identical but the 620 supports some newer technologies so, for example, it'll use less power playing back 10-bit HEVC encoded videos (HDR).
