My System Specs

Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong
They are using both : Gaming section is where the games are played at high resolution and the CPU is paired with a discrete graphics card and IGP Gaming is where the integrated GPU is used at much lower settings.
So, when paired with a decent graphics card this cpu is producing at least 90% of the frame rates produced by a core i5 while costing only 75% of the price of an i5! Talk about value right there : you can pair this cpu with a sub 100$ mobo, and even with a 400$ cpu on top you get an excellent gaming system under 1000$ that will get 8GB of RAM a nice SSD and a good PSU and case. No need for over the top configurations when gaming is involved.
